MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA: Atlantis Computing, a provider of Software-defined Storage, has expanded its hyper-converged appliance product line with the introduction of the Atlantis HyperScale CX-4 model. The company has also made available all models of its hyper-converged appliances on the Dell PowerEdge FX2 server platform.  

The CX-4 appliance is a two-node hyper-converged integrated system with compute, all-flash storage, networking, and virtualization built for remote offices, branch offices (ROBO), and micro data centers. It offers the lowest entry point cost for any hyper-converged appliance and a simplified deployment process that pre-configures networking for each remote appliance to connect to central Atlantis Manager virtual appliance. It provides the agility, efficiency, and assurance that customers expect and diminishes the cost of operation.

Designed with the features like four TB of effective storage capacity and 48 compute cores in a compact 2U footprint, the CX-4 model enables IT enterprises to fulfill all the infrastructure necessities of their remote sites, simplify operations, cut costs and ensures that all critical data remains safely backed up at a central site.

“The new Atlantis HyperScale CX-4 truly meets an unmet need in the industry and is a game changer for our ROBO customers. Prior to this offering, it would be unheard of for a ROBO environment to be equipped with an all-flash hyper-converged appliance because of the cost,” says Chetan Venkatesh, CEO and President, Atlantis.

Moreover, Atlantis Computing has collaborated with Dell to deliver the entire line of Atlantis HyperScale all-flash hyperconverged appliances on Dell PowerEdge FX2 platform. Through this collaboration, customers will get all Atlantis HyperScale CX-4, CX-12, and CX-24 appliances on Dell servers via Dell distributors and channel partners.

Combining blade server density and integrated 10GbE switching with the cost-effectiveness of rack servers, the Atlantis HyperScale solution is the first hyper-converged offering available on the Dell FX2 platform. It simplifies cabling and delivers better network performance between the hyper-converged appliances nodes compared to other hyper-converged appliances that require a separate 10GbE switch.

“Adding Dell to our portfolio will expand the reach of Atlantis HyperScale benefits. Since launching Atlantis HyperScale, one after the other, customers are telling us how much money they’re saving, how much faster they can deploy and react and how much simpler their jobs have become. With Dell as a partner, we’ll be able to introduce these benefits to a much wider market and giving customers more technology freedom,” adds Venkatesh.
