Amherst, NY (February 29 , 2008) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announces driver support for its complete line of host adapters for Microsoft Windows Server 2008. ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel Host Adapters, ExpressSAS® SAS/SATA RAID and Host Adapters and ExpressPCI SCSI Host Adapters, are PCI Express (PCIe) and PCI-X adapters that support Windows Server 2008.

"ATTO reinforces its commitment to the Windows market by being the first host adapter vendor to deliver support for the newest Microsoft operating system, Windows Server 2008. Windows users can now choose from a full spectrum of high-performance adapters for SCSI, Fibre Channel and SAS/SATA environments," states Ed Tierney, director of marketing for ATTO.

Moving data at express speeds without bottlenecks is ensured with ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel single-, dual- and quad- channel host adapters. The combination of PCI-Express and 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel technologies enables applications such as high-definition video editing, 2K digital production and transactional environments such as databases to take advantage of the 800 MB/sec. per channel throughput performance. Featuring ATTO's exclusive Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) Technology, large blocks of data move faster and more efficiently on the PCI bus than any other host adapter on the market.

For direct attached environments, ATTO ExpressSAS® SAS/SATA RAID and Host Adapters and ExpressPCI SCSI Host Adapters provide a range of features including software and integrated RAID support, multiple port and form factor configurations and performance levels enough to handle the most demanding applications such as 2K and 4K film, multiple layers of complex, uncompressed real-time effects, and high-definition video editing.

Windows Server 2008 is also supported by ATTO Express Power Center software – a unique Windows-based software utility that maximizes productivity by delivering exceptional striping performance across single and multiple RAID arrays for attached storage applications. Express Power Center shifts productivity into high gear. With ATTO's Smooth Data Optimization (SDO™) Technology, read and writes are delivered at blazing-fast speeds without interruption. Built-in intelligence automatically manages transfer requests resulting in increased throughput performance. Streams of video can now be efficiently striped across RAID arrays without interruption and large blocks of data transfer at lightning speeds. Using the intuitive GUI with one-click installation, stripe groups can be quickly and efficiently managed.

"ATTO's complete line of Fibre Channel, SAS, SCSI host adapters and software ensures the throughput required for handling massive media files without bottlenecks. ATTO Technology continues to set the standard for high-performance adapters and delivers industry-leading solutions that meet our customers' performance expectations and aggressive time-to-market requirements," said Ed Tierney, director of marketing for ATTO."
