Amherst, NY (June 25, 2012) — ATTO Technology, Inc., announced today the availability of their FastFrame™ 10GBASE-T Network Interface Cards (NICs). Built upon Intel technology, FastFrame 10GBASE-T NICs boast 47% faster Fibre Channel performance than existing structured twisted-pair copper cabling, ensuring usability in any data center.
With enhanced iSCSI support through Lossless Ethernet (CEE) and Data Center Bridging (DCB), the cards are offered in single and dual-port configurations.
