Apr 04, 2011

Amherst, NY (April 4, 2011) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, today announced the launch of its latest offering in its family of high-performance products, the FastFrame™ 10Gb/s Ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC). Combining leading Ethernet technology and ATTO's 23-year expertise in high-bandwidth data transfer, the FastFrame NIC is the only card of its kind on the market offered in Quad, Dual and Single port options for PCIe 2.0 data interconnects.

Growth in bandwidth intensive data I/O environments, including Internet Protocol (IP) traffic, voice over IP (VOIP), Video on demand (VOD), High Performance Computing (HPC) clustering, combined with the available processing power in multi-core processor servers is driving users to adopt 10Gb Ethernet solutions. ATTO's 10Gb Ethernet NICs not only meet and exceed the growing demands of traditional host-to-host networking, but they also expand the possibilities to Ethernet based storage by supporting Data Center Bridging.

ATTO's FastFrame NICs, based on Intel chip technology, offers field-proven, industry standard network connectivity available for Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems, making them the most versatile 10Gb/s Ethernet cards available for high-bandwidth I/O connectivity found in markets such as media and entertainment, education and government . In addition, they provide lowest power consumption, up to 30 percent lower than similar products, easing data center budgets when it comes to overall power and cooling costs.

"With a wide variety of high-bandwidth connectivity products and a majority share in the media and entertainment markets, ATTO FastFrame™ 10Gb Network Interface Cards are a natural extension of ATTO's product portfolio, " said Timothy J. Klein, president and CEO for ATTO Technology, Inc. "ATTO's FastFrame extends the benefits of 10Gb/s network connectivity to Mac OS® X in rich-content environments in M&E markets while also providing support for Windows and Linux servers when used in datacenter applications."

FastFrame 10Gb/s NICs will be available for shipment in late April 2011 and will be on display in ATTO's booth at SNW 2011 at Hyatt Regency Silicon Valley/Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California April 4 through April 7 (Kiosk A5).
