Apr 17, 2014

Amherst, NY (April 17, 2014) – ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage and network connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, today announced it will be Silver sponsor of the Intel® Solutions Summits (ISS), supporting its partnership with Intel at the Aria™ Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 23 through April 25.

ISS is Intel's largest and most prestigious channel event. The invitation-only conference enables elite channel program members to connect with Intel Technology providers and receive updates on the latest technologies, market trends and Intel product innovations for storage connectivity. ATTO Technology provides Intel-certified solutions for workstation, server and storage environments, offering the widest range of end-to-end product solutions for enterprise class infrastructures.

ISS will provide top systems integrators and value-added resellers (VARs) an opportunity to learn more about ATTO's Intel-Certified ExpressSAS® Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) and RAID Adapters, as well as its full portfolio of connectivity products. ATTO will highlight 16Gb Celerity™ Gen 5 powered Host Bus Adapters (HBAs), 12Gb ExpressSAS® HBAs, FastStream™ RAID Storage Controllers, FibreConnect™ Switches, as well their FastFrame™ line of Network Interface Cards (NICs) and Converged Network Adapters (CNAs). In addition, ATTO will feature the all-new Thunderbolt™ 2 technology-enabled ThunderLink® Desklink Devices which allow small form factor platforms, such as all-in-ones, Ultrabooks and laptops, to connect to high-performance infrastructures.

"ATTO is excited to be recognized by Intel for our long standing history of developing industry leading connectivity solutions," said Wayne Arvidson, vice president of marketing and channels at ATTO Technology, Inc. "Building on Intel's innovative platforms, we offer system integrators differentiated solutions that solve complex end user problems. ISS gives us an opportunity to share our 25 year heritage of innovation and show why leading integrators build their systems around ATTO products."

Thunderbolt 2 enabled ThunderLink® Devices are the latest extension of the Desklink Device family featuring the revolutionary I/O technology from Intel®. With transfer speeds at 20Gb/s, ATTO's Thunderbolt 2 ThunderLink® Desklink Devices are ideal for the professional who needs access to external storage and networks for I/O demanding applications. To ensure cross-compatibility, ATTO Thunderbolt 2 products have multiple operating system, port and driver options, enabling users to preserve their existing Thunderbolt investments and maintain compatibility with multiple platforms. ThunderLink® Desklink Devices provide Thunderbolt to Fibre Channel, SAS or 10GbE connectivity, enabling all-in-one systems and mobile computing platforms access to 16Gb or 8Gb Fibre Channel SANs, storage devices and Ethernet networks at unprecedented speeds.

ATTO's 16Gb Gen 5 powered line of Fibre Channel-enabled products provide the ideal end-to-end solution for managing data from workgroup to enterprise level environments. Gen 5 Fibre Channel SANs are the purpose-built, data center-proven infrastructures for storage, while delivering unmatched reliability, simplicity and performance. ATTO's Fibre Channel solutions unleash the full potential of high-performance computing, high-density server virtualization, cloud architectures and next-generation storage connectivity.

The ATTO FastStream SC 9000 is the only Fibre Channel RAID controller that allows IT professionals to easily create their own fully-scalable 16Gb SAN storage solution. System builders have the ability to embed the ATX form factor into a storage server to create a license-free and surprisingly affordable high capacity storage array. With numerous scalable options, FastStream supports up to 512TB of RAID protected shared storage per controller using HDD or SSD Drive technology. FastStream storage controllers are engineered for demanding real-time applications which require managed latency for high-volume collaborative workflows and include ATTO's exclusive Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) and DriveAssure™ technologies, ensuring peak performance and reliability while maximizing system uptime.

ATTO's FibreConnect 1600 series of 16Gb Fibre Channel switches are engineered to deliver smooth and reliable data transfer over a SAN for mission critical applications, such as video streaming and virtualized environments. When combined with the Celerity 16Gb Fibre Channel HBAs, FibreConnect switches provide complete SAN connectivity with high-bandwidth, low latency and the lowest power consumption in the industry.

The ATTO Celerity 16Gb Gen 5 powered HBAs, including the industry's first quad channel card, deliver the highest bandwidth and lowest latency available in the market, as well as reliable and scalable connectivity with twice the maximum throughput of previous solutions. ATTO's exclusive ADS technology manages latency in real-time environments for the smoothest data streaming and best-in-industry data transfers, while MultiPath Director™ allows not just servers, but Mac, Windows and Linux workstations direct connection to enterprise class storage, providing failover and load balancing capabilities across multiple paths of storage and increases aggregate bandwidth throughout the infrastructure.

The latest addition to the ExpressSAS® family, the 12Gb SAS/SATA HBA, provides users with fast and reliable storage connectivity while enabling scalability for next generation platforms and infrastructures. Optimized for extremely low latency and high-bandwidth data transfer, ATTO's wide variety of port configurations and RAID levels offer flexibility and reliability for the most demanding applications.

"We look forward to showcasing our full suite of storage and network connectivity solutions at ISS and showing how we support channel partners with our Accelerate™ partner program," added Arvidson. "We encourage attendees to learn more about ATTO's 25 plus years of market leadership in solving the most difficult challenges found in data-intensive environments."
