Citrix finds Atlantis
Citrix and Atlantis are partnering up for VDI and HCIAs.

Atlantis fast cloning works with Citrix Lifecycle manager to provision thousands of desktops in minutes. Atlantis says its HyperScale reduces the infrastructure cost per desktop to as low as $125 per desktop for a virtual desktop and $82 per user for a hosted shared desktop. Citrix-Nutanix VDI systems for the mid-market are priced at $415/desktop. Atlantis has also partnered with Fujitsu to produce the VCS HyperScale Appliance offering. ®
