ATTO Technology, Inc. introduces Quad-port version of successful 32Gb Fibre Channel line of HBAs
Celerity™ Gen 6 HBAs deliver the highest throughput yet for the most demanding computing and storage environmentsAmherst, NY (September 11, 2017)
– ATTO Technology, Inc.
, a global leader of storage,
network connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments,
announced today the availability of its new quad-port ATTO Celerity™ 32Gb Gen 6 FC-324E
host bus adapters (HBAs). This addition to the ATTO Fibre Channel portfolio will enable
companies to capitalize on their existing storage area network (SAN) infrastructure and
addresses the growing need for high-performing, scalable and secure storage to support
exponential data growth from applications such as 4K/8K editing and high-performance
computing and data warehousing, along with the proliferation of virtualized servers and flash
ATTO 32Gb HBAs support 3,200MB/s per channel data throughput, maximizing the number of
virtual machines per physical server and delivering unmatched storage performance. With x16
PCIe bus connection and four 32Gb/s Fibre Channel ports, the FC-324E eliminates the
bottlenecks created by I/O data intensive applications.
With data centers moving to all-flash arrays, the need to drive greater performance to more
solid-state drives (SSDs) is becoming critical. Four Fibre Channel ports in a single PCIe slot
ensures high-density connectivity at the highest available performance for up to 1.2 GB/s
throughput making it ideally suited for environments utilizing next-generation, flash-based
storage. 32Gb Celerity HBAs support up to 2X the number of outstanding commands than the
competition allowing, sustained maximum performance and enabling users to continue to meet
service level agreements.
Celerity 32Gb HBAs also make it possible to have longer distances between servers and
storage. They support more data in-flight allowing users to extend their connection to storage up
to 10 km, without degrading throughput for demanding long-distance applications such as a
"Upgrading an existing Fibre Channel SAN to 32Gb Gen 6 is a logical choice to maximize
performance," said Tim Klein, CEO of ATTO Technology. He continued, "Fibre Channel remains
the go-to storage technology for high performance enterprise applications, which makes it a
great match for flash storage and all flash arrays. ATTO will soon have NVMe support for Fibre
Channel fabrics, allowing users to bring the latest NVMe drives onto a Fibre Channel SAN."
The ATTO Gen 6 line includes Celerity™ 32Gb and 16Gb HBAs in low-profile single-, dual- and now quad-port full height versions. All versions are backward compatible, reducing the complexity of deploying and managing the SAN, and take full advantage of advancements for reliability and forward error correction to improve network performance and resiliency.
Celerity HBAs are designed to provide fast, redundant and highly available connectivity to Fibre Channel storage and are engineered to manage latency for real-time applications. ATTO exclusive Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) technology provides controlled acceleration of data to deliver the most consistent performance and reliable data transfers.
For an end-to-end connectivity solution, the ATTO XstreamCORE™ 7550 and 7500 16Gb Fibre Channel storage controllers provide users the ability to create a Fibre Channel SAN and the ability to disaggregate stranded SAS/SATA storage with performance up to 6.4 GB/s or 1.4M 4K IOPS with less than four μs of latency. The XstreamCORE 7600 for 32Gb/s will be available in 2018.
Celerity 32Gb Gen 6 quad-port FC-324E HBAs are available now for purchase.
