Amherst, New York (April 2, 2015) – ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage, network connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments for more than 25 years, today announced a complete joint Fibre Channel SAN connectivity solution with Infortrend, a specialist in RAID storage solutions. The solution includes ATTO’s Celerity™16 Gb/s Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs), Thunderbolt™ 2 enabled Thunderlink Desklink Devices and FibreConnect™ Switches, which have now been certified with Infortrend’s EonStor DS storage systems. This high performance end to end platform now makes the editorial process easier, faster and more cost effective than ever before.

“This partnership with ATTO not only offers flexible solutions for media and broadcasting professionals but affirms our commitment to deliver the finest storage features and performance,” said Tony Chu, president at Infortrend. “We would like to invite people to experience our storage solutions at NAB 2015, where ATTO will be featured in our live demonstration.”

  • Improved productivity of workstations and servers who share storage, enabling collaborative workflows.
  • Simplified management for administration and troubleshooting of multiple paths to storage.

With the increasing adoption of 4K workflows, ATTO and Infortrend’s Fibre Channel solutions enable content creation for simultaneous uncompressed 4K media. ATTO Technology’s Celerity Fibre Channel HBAs with MultiPath Director™ provide completely redundant, high – performance connectivity for workstation and server applications to Infortrend’s EonStor DS storage. The only storage connectivity solution that lets users manage multiple paths between Mac®and Windows® hosts and high-end storage systems, MultiPath Director enables streamlined user workflows and the protection of digital assets via consistent, reliable data transfers.

Rounding out the solution is the addition of Thunderbolt 2 technology which brings high – performance connectivity for workbooks, laptops and all-in-ones to the centralized EonStor DS storage pool. ATTO’s Thunderbolt-enabled Desklink Devices convert the Thunderbolt protocol to Fibre Channel, establishing seamless integration of these mobile computer platforms into the existing Fibre Channel SAN.
