Amherst, NY (September 10, 2009) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage
connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments today
announced that their FastStream™ Storage Controller has been qualified interoperable with
Tiger Technology metaSAN® SAN Management software. Projects that require several editors
to work on the same digital footage will benefit from the implementation of a shared storage
solution using ATTO FastStream Storage Controllers with metaSAN software.
FastStream allows up to four workstations to share a pool of RAID-protected SAS or SATA
storage without using a Fibre Channel switch. Using the FastStream with SAS drives protected
by RAID 5 provides support for up to five streams of 10-bit uncompressed YUV HD video with
performance up to 1400MB/s. In addition, the FastStream manages latency so editors can work
with up to 30 total streams of DVCPro HD while simultaneously accessing up to 48 streams of
uncompressed audio over several workstations when using a Fibre Channel switch.
"High-performance RAIDs capable of handling 2K workflows are quite expensive. We found that
the ATTO FastStream allows us to leverage inexpensive JBODs by providing the RAID
protection and the throughput needed for finishing work, at a remarkable price point." says Roy
Prins of Systems 4U, "Combined with metaSAN, FastStream proves to be a real winning
Tiger Technology's metaSAN software manages the SAN and eliminates the risk of file system
corruption by arbitrating simultaneous accesses and performing file-system translation that
allows Windows-, Mac-, and Linux-based computers to share access to the same files. When
paired with FastStream Storage Controllers customers have a high-performance; low latency
data solution which eliminates performance hassles and dropped frames.
“In a shared environment it is important to have reliable software to manage the flow of data
while preventing multiple writes to the same file,” states James U’Ren, FastStream Product
Manager for ATTO Technology. “Tiger Technology provides a product that not only meets the
needs of our customers looking to create a collaborative workflow but Tiger also supports
customers moving from direct attached to shared storage with a solution that is very simple to
install and manage. This is valuable for customers that may not have a dedicated IT department
to setup and manage a new storage system.”
"We are delighted to further extend our relationship with ATTO, an innovation leader of storage
connectivity and infrastructure solutions," said Bernard Lamborelle, Director at Tiger Technology
"The FastStream RAID storage controller and metaSAN software offers storage professionals a
high-performance, scalable and easy to integrate SAN that is cost effective."
