iSCSI Initiator qualified with EMC Celerra® and CLARiiON®

Amherst, NY (April 6, 2010) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announced today that its Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator for Apple Mac® OS X has been qualified for use with EMC Celerra® and CLARiiON® networked storage systems. ATTO's Xtend SAN provides iSCSI SAN connectivity, error handling and security for EMC storage systems in Mac OS X environments.

ATTO Xtend SAN is the first and most widely-distributed, standalone iSCSI Initiator that allows Mac users to attach and load balance storage connected via an Ethernet-based network. With Xtend SAN, users can remotely access iSCSI storage from multiple servers, increasing accessibility and simplifying storage management, while leveraging existing IT expertise. The combination of Xtend SAN and EMC storage systems provides added value for customers whose environments require greater security and automation with features such as a scriptable Command Line Interface, Header and Data Digests, CHAP and iSNS support.

“Qualification of ATTO's Xtend SAN by EMC enables Mac OS X users to take advantage of Ethernet-based storage solutions with the industries most used and best supported iSCSI initiator”, states Tom Kolniak, Director of Products at ATTO Technology. “ATTO's Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator provides Mac OS X customers with a networked solution not previously available to them. The ability to utilize on-board Ethernet for Xserve®, Mac Pro® and Macbook®, systems opens up new opportunities for Mac customers to access storage media and digital content using EMC iSCSI storage.”

The ATTO Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator for Mac OS X is a software initiator that was first introduced seven years ago and coincided with ATTO's line of first-to-market iSCSI bridging products. ATTO's iSCSI expertise has spanned several generations of products with reliable, iSCSI connectivity solutions. All of ATTO's products provide support for the Mac OS X market with ongoing releases.
