ATTO Technology Demonstrates Innovative Storage
Connectivity Solutions at NAB 08

Apr 14, 2008

NAB 2008, Las Vegas, NV (April 14, 2008) – ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, is featuring four live connectivity demonstrations at this week's NAB Show. Located in booth SL4320, ATTO will demonstrate proven, reliable high-performance storage connectivity solutions targeted towards high-end digital editing where workflow productivity is critical and performance must be optimal.

Demonstration One – SAS/SATA Storage
ExpressSAS® SAS/SATA RAID Adapters -- demonstrating cost-effective, high-performance RAID data protection to direct attached storage. This highly-scalable solution is geared towards standard-definition and compressed video environments, and provides high-performance RAID protection and support for applications running Mac®, Windows® and Linux.

Demonstration Two – Multipathing Capabilities for Mac Users
Celerity Fibre Channel Host Adapters -- showcasing multipathing capabilities for Mac OS X. This solution will show high-availability storage connectivity for Mac users, featuring path failover for continuous uptime and load balancing to aggregate performance. Through partnerships with HP, EMC and Hitachi Data Systems, ATTO has developed a custom multipathing driver for Mac OS X that works with Celerity host adapters in multi-workstation, heterogeneous environments.

Demonstration Three – Next Generation Fibre Channel Solutions
Celerity 8-Gb Fibre Channel Host Adapters -- running IOMETER to show performance. As a market leader in high-performance storage applications, ATTO consistently delivers early market solutions that enable cutting-edge technology. The 8-Gb Celerity Fibre Channel Host Adapters (available in single-, dual-, and quad- channel) enable the media and entertainment industry's most demanding applications such as 2K and 4K film, multiple layers of complex, uncompressed real-time effects, and high-definition (HD) video and audio editing.

Demonstration Four – Data Protection for Post-Production
FastStream SC RAID Storage Controller Appliances -- add RAID functionality and management for multiple streams of HD video in SAN environments. This solution allows one or multiple Fibre Channel-based workstations to have access to inexpensive, RAID protected SATA storage, and can sustain high-performance when in degraded or rebuild modes.

“This year's NAB provides us with the opportunity to demonstrate how ATTO solutions support high-bandwidth applications in multiple environments. We will also showcase how ATTO storage infrastructure solutions simplify and improve digital media workflow,” states Ed Tierney, director of marketing for ATTO Technology, Inc.

ATTO's complete product line will be exhibited, including:

  • 4-Gb PCIe and PCI-X Fibre Channel Host Adapters
  • Ultra320 PCIe SCSI Host Adapters
  • 4-Gb Fibre Channel-to-SCSI Bridges
  • iSCSI Bridges
  • Storage Controller Appliances
  • Performance Striping Software

In addition to the four live demonstrations, ATTO products will also be a part of demonstrations being shown by many of our partners, including: Adobe, AJA, Autodesk, Blackmagic, da Vinci, EMC, Facilis, Matrox and Tiger Technology. Stop by our booth for a complete list of our NAB partners.
