NAB Show Las Vegas, NV (April 14, 2008) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments announces that SAN Solutions, best-of-breed network storage integrator, will be demonstrating the ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel Host Adapter multipathing driver with enterprise class storage at NAB this week.

ATTO, a long time developer of storage solutions for the Apple market, has created a specialized Fibre Channel solution that allows the creation of multiple paths to high-end modular storage systems. These paths ensure continuous data protection in a solution that is robust enough to support the throughput demands of high-end video applications. It's also scalable across multiple workstations and Enterprise Class Storage Systems in a Fibre Channel SAN. The ATTO Celerity 4-Gb Fibre Channel Host Adapter provides connectivity to many high-availability storage systems through a Fibre Channel switch. A custom driver, developed by ATTO for Celerity Fibre Channel host adapters, allows the Mac OS X Operating System high-availability connections to most of today's enterprise class storage systems. This ensures maximum bandwidth to each controller. ATTO's years of digital media industry experience with high-bandwidth environments ensures that Celerity host adapters are tuned for optimal performance.
