ATTO Technology to Showcase Certified Storage Connectivity Solutions at NetApp Insight 2015

High performance connectivity solutions to solve bandwidth–intensive challenges

Oct 09, 2015

Amherst, NY (October 9, 2015)ATTO Technology, Inc. announced today it will showcase its portfolio of certified connectivity solutions at both the NetApp Insight Americas show held in Las Vegas, Nevada October 12 through October 15 and NetApp Insight EMEA show in Berlin, Germany November 16 through November 19. ATTO, a member of the NetApp Alliance Partner Program, will highlight its certified connectivity options for NetApp storage and data management solutions, including Celerity™ Gen 5 powered 16Gb Host Bus Adapters, FastFrame™ Ethernet Optical Network Interface Cards (NICs) and FibreBridge® Fibre Channel-to-SAS/SATA Storage Controllers. ATTO will also display a number of next-generation solutions, including its new FastFrame 40GbE NIC and FibreBridge® 7500N 16Gb Fibre Channel-to-12Gb SAS/SATA Storage Controller.


Celerity Fibre Channel HBAs are designed to cover the full performance spectrum from enterprise to workgroup, and server to workstation environments. The highly integrated family of adapters is engineered to optimize data transfer using a combination of exclusive features. ATTO’s Multipath Director™ allows users to manage direct connections and multiple paths to NetApp enterprise storage systems, increasing the reliability of high performance Linux®, Mac OS® X and Windows® applications, all while improving performance and protecting data through load-balancing and failover. ATTO’s Celerity 16Gb Fibre Channel quad channel HBAs, the first of their kind in the market, address the needs of Linux and Windows platforms in high performance computing, virtualization and other high-IOPS and high-bandwidth environments.


FastFrame NICs comprise a versatile portfolio that can be used anywhere in the infrastructure, including servers, data center racked servers and workstations with Windows, Linux and Mac (server and workstation) operating systems. ATTO’s new FastFrame 40GbE NIC builds upon the current 10GbE offering in providing a high throughput solution for aggregation level use in data centers, for cloud deployments, and for latency-sensitive high performance applications. The industry-leading throughput and ultra-low latency provided by ATTO’s 40GbE NIC is the result of Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), a feature that uses zero copy data transfers to permit efficient data movement between servers and storage and to free up host CPUs for other tasks.


The FibreBridge® 6500N Storage Controller, which ships with every NetApp MetroCluster, integrates SAS/SATA disk storage into a Fibre Channel SAN, increasing availability and scalability while allowing the use of NetApp FAS Series storage on a shared Fibre Channel network. At NetApp Insight, ATTO will display its new FibreBridge® 7500N Storage Controller, a high-performance platform that accelerates all reads and writes in hardware and will add Enterprise-level 16Gb Fibre Channel SAN connectivity and diagnostic, management and monitoring to future MetroCluster deployments. By delivering 1.47M 4K IOPS in dual-controller configurations and less than 4 microseconds of latency, the 7500N provides unmatched $/IOPS value and the lowest access latency in the industry.
