Themis Announces Ruggedized, Atlantis USX-Powered, All-Flash, Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Platform
Fremont, CA – November 17, 2015 – Themis Computer today announces the immediate availability of Hyper-UnityTM, the first rugged all-flash hyper-converged, scalable infrastructure, featuring Atlantis USX™. Hyper-Unity seamlessly integrates four ruggedized, eight-drive, RES-XR5-1U rack mounted servers, with a high-speed, 12-port Mellanox Infiniband switch, and Atlantis USX, the award-winning, patented Software-defined Storage (SDS) solution. Hyper-Unity is the first turn-key, Mil Spec, SWAP-optimized, hyper-converged infrastructure platform, to deliver all-flash performance for virtualized applications, at less than half the cost of traditional storage or other hyper-converged platforms.
“Themis Computer is a premier Federal Solutions Provider in the Atlantis Reseller Partner Program. We have been working closely with Themis to develop, certify and characterize the performance of its Hyper-Unity solution,” said Edward Alfriend, Atlantis’ Director of Federal Solutions Providers. “Atlantis is excited to have a complete partner solution that meets Mil Spec standards for our joint Government and Military customers as well as commercial customers with enhanced reliability needs.”
“With the Hyper-Unity solution, Themis and Atlantis Computing are changing the way that the DoD buys and consumes storage. The DoD requires enhanced reliability, ultra-fast, cost-effective storage from a trusted source – on hardware built to survive the rigors of demanding environments. Themis’ Hyper-Unity is the very first ruggedized, plug-and-play solution to integrate all-flash speed at half the cost,” said Bill Kehret, president and CEO of Themis Computer. “Faster servers with low-latency access to high-performance storage, allow compute-intensive applications to scale, on demand, without compromising performance, thus seriously changing the paradigm for deployed computing infrastructure.
Hyper-Unity delivers the performance of an all-flash array in a four-server cluster, enabling IT organizations to meet the performance requirements of any workload. Atlantis USX™ software performs in-memory, in-line deduplication and compression, before data is written to storage, leading to extremely low latencies, higher IOPS and lower storage and network traffic.
Ruggedized For Demanding Environments
The Hyper-Unity platform features industry-leading performance with enhanced reliability features that ensure survivability in the most demanding environments, and where Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) is an important consideration. Themis RES rack-mount servers provide superior resilience to shock, vibration, and temperature extremes.
Instead of buying large and expensive storage arrays with limited performance, the Hyper-Unity Infrastructure enables enterprises to scale out in small, modular units and grow their compute and storage resources in balance. Hyper-Unity delivers the performance of an all-flash array in every solution with flexible storage options based on mission requirements. Hyper-Unity also supports popular hypervisors, preserving prior investments in tools, time, and training.
The rapid proliferation of virtualized server Guest OS instances and associated VM sprawl for databases, web servers, application servers, and other VMs has outstripped the ability of traditional storage systems to adequately service storage traffic. In addition to proliferating capacity requirements, virtualized servers require high performance storage that delivers the IOPS, throughput and latency required to make applications perform their best. The purchase of traditional SAN and NAS storage to meet this requirement is costly and, increasingly, exceeds budgets. The Hyper-Unity platform typically cuts datacenter infrastructure costs by 50 percent or more while delivering All-Flash performance.
Hyper-Unity lowers costs, using Atlantis Computing’s patented data reduction and IO acceleration technology to reduce the amount of physical RAM and local flash required per TB of effective storage capacity. Based on ruggedized, x86 server hardware, Hyper-Unity eliminates the need for multiple tiers of flash and hard drives, required in other hyper-converged solutions. Hybrid hyper-converged systems remain more costly and lack the level of performance delivered by Atlantis-powered Themis Hyper-Unity platforms.
Rapid, Cost-Effective and Easy Deployment
Themis’ Hyper-Unity platforms deliver all-flash performance at lower cost than traditional storage or competitive hyper-converged solutions. Instead of integrating costly and complex SAN, NAS or all-flash array storage with servers, Hyper-Unity delivers an all-flash hyper-converged platform, comprising pre-integrated nodes, each with its own compute, enterprise-class SSD storage, Atlantis USX SDS, high-performance networking and virtualization. Organizations can quickly deploy a turnkey solution cluster that provides from 96 up to several hundred CPU cores, from 1 to 8 TB of RAM and 6 TB of all-flash storage to support several hundreds of server VMs w/12 to 100s of TB of effective storage capacity.
