Amherst, NY (March 2, 2010) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments today announced that their RAID storage controller the FastStream™ SC 7500 has successfully been Microsoft Logo Certified for Windows Server 2008. The Certified for Windows Server 2008 logo program is designed for line-of business and mission-critical products and aims to ensure that Microsoft customers receive the best performance possible from their storage infrastructure. ATTO FastStream Storage Controllers are engineered for real-time applications which require managed latency for high performance collaborative workflows.
FastStream allows 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. Unlike competing products performance does not diminish when multiple workstations are accessing storage through the FastStream. Only solutions that meet Microsoft's highest technical bar for stability, security, reliability, availability and platform compatibility are awarded the Certified for Windows 2008 logo.
“Achieving Microsoft Windows certification reinforces ATTO's commitment to deliver reliable storage solutions”, states James U’Ren, Product Manager for ATTO Technology.” For instance, one reliability feature, DriveAssure™, has five distinct components; guaranteed latency response, media scrubbing, media scans with parity verification, media error handling and a rebuild recovery mode which can continue rebuilds when an error occurs. This is just one technology packed into a FastStream to give users the best possible storage experience possible.”
FastStream features proprietary technologies which ensure optimal disk performance while minimizing latency. DriveAssure™ is drive technology which provides bounded latency through proprietary algorithms and user controls to prevent premature drive failures and slowdowns, giving users uninterrupted access to data. Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) is latency management technology that provides controlled acceleration for smooth data streaming to maintain consistent performance. Combined these technologies give users smooth, uninterrupted access to data with the highest available performance.
