Amherst, NY (November 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 successfully been certified with the Fibrenetix E4 storage system. The FastStream is engineered for real-time applications which require managed latency and feature ADS™ and DriveAssure™ technology to ensure best-in-industry data transfers for high-bandwidth applications while preventing premature drive failures and drive slow downs providing uninterrupted access to data.
FastStream Storage Controllers allow multiple 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 HD video with performance up to 1400MB/s. The FastStream provides industry-leading shared performance capable of handling 30 total streams of DVCPro HD or ProRes 422 over multiple workstations. Unlike competing products performance does not diminish when multiple workstations are accessing storage through the FastStream.
Fibrenetix, a leading storage provider to the AV market, is recognized in the industry for reliable, high performance storage systems. Jes Nagel, Fibrenetix CEO says; “ATTO's FastStream™ has already established itself as the benchmark product in the professional content creation industry. FastStream™ is truly pushing storage vendors to develop faster and more reliable storage devices and Fibrenetix E4-1662-JBOD is currently one of the few products in the market able to keep up with ATTO's advanced technology.”
“Applications are pushing the storage industry by generating larger projects which require a more bandwidth-intensive workflow”, states James U’Ren, FastStream Product Manager for ATTO Technology. “Current storage infrastructures are not geared toward efficiently sharing the larger files generated by these modern applications. The FastStream allows data to be shared and protected which reduces risk and personnel costs on projects. Storage is key when planning a shared workflow and this is why ATTO certified the FastStream with fast, reliable storage from Fibrenetix which will give end users confidence that their data is in good hands while projects are finished on time and under budget.”
Fibrenetix E4 system supports up to 6x 16 bay storage enclosures in a chain and can utilize 3.5”, 2.5” and even solid state disks in the same hard drive caddy, enabling customers to mix and match 10K, or even 15K RPM drives, with solid state drives in a single enclosure. Jes Nagel, Fibrenetix CEO adds; “ATTO's FastStream and Fibrenetix storage technology offer unsurpassed performance which is as yet unmatched by the competition. Our respective testing and certification process guarantees customer confidence when combining ATTO and Fibrenetix storage products.”
