Jan 14, 2008

Macworld Expo, San Francisco, CA (January 14, 2008) – ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, today announced the general availability of its new line of FastStream™ Storage Controller Appliances. ATTO FastStream Storage Controllers are scalable appliances which deliver up to 1200 Megabytes per second access to data with parity RAID protection. The FastStream is well suited for applications in DVA and IT infrastructures including 4K and 2K digital film production, high-definition video post-production, digital prepress, disk-to-disk backup, audio production and transaction-based environments. The FastStream SC 7500 uses a 4-Gb Fibre Channel interface for the host connection and a 3-Gb SAS interface for drive connectivity. The FastStream SC 7700 uses a 4-Gb Fibre Channel interface for both the host and drive connections.

“We designed the 7000 series with our customer's needs in mind,” said Edward Tierney, director of marketing for ATTO Technology. “Both performance and workgroup size were important factors considered when designing the FastStream line. By providing robust data protection, ample performance for demanding editing needs and connectivity options for small to medium workgroups, FastStream helps to satisfy production and post-production demands.”

The FastStream product line is now available in the United States via Avnet and Rorke Data. Availability in Canada is provided through Bell Microproducts and international availability is provided by ATTO's Global Alliance Partners.
