ATTO Technology Expands SAS Offering by Introducing ExpressSAS® Host Adapters Featuring the Intel® IOC340 Processor

Amherst, NY (October 23, 2007) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, today announced the introduction of two new host adapter products to its ExpressSAS® product family. Building off of the ATTO ExpressSAS® RAID adapters launched earlier this year, the ExpressSAS® H380 and ExpressSAS® H308 are new entries to the company's line of innovative host adapter products. The family expansion adds a cost effective, entry-level connectivity solution that delivers high-performance access to data for applications in DVA and IT infrastructures including high-definition video post-production, digital film production, digital prepress, tape backup, audio production, email compliance, data warehousing, data mining and transaction based environments.

Featuring a low-profile design, the ExpressSAS® H380 and H308 adapters combine an eight-lane PCIe bus architecture with 3-Gb SAS technology to deliver data transfer rates of up 300MB/sec per port. With the integration of ATTO's exclusive Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) Technology and the leveraging of the Intel® IOC340 I/O SAS chip technology, the ExpressSAS® host adapters have been designed to efficiently manage latencies and control the acceleration of data transfers for optimal performance in high-bandwidth environments.

The ExpressSAS® H380 offers cost-effective connectivity through two external x4 MiniSAS SFF8088 connectors, while the H308 model utilizes two internal x4 MiniSAS SFF8087. Interoperable with a wide range of SAS and SATA storage devices including JBOD enclosures, tape libraries and RAID arrays, the ExpressSAS® host adapters are capable of delivering the performance necessary to handle multiple layers of complex, uncompressed real-time effects, and edit high-definition video.

"ATTO has significant experience as a pioneer in the storage market, and today's announcement of the ExpressSAS® family extension with our SAS/SATA low-profile host adapters with advanced management features demonstrates our commitment as a trusted industry leader," said Ed Tierney, director of marketing at ATTO Technology. “As we did with our SCSI product lines, we have taken the lead in delivering multi-vendor interoperability including Windows®, Linux and Mac® OS X. Taking advantage of the functionality in the Intel IOC340 I/O Processor, ATTO ExpressSAS® Host Adapters deliver blazing-fast throughput and are the ideal solution for transactional database applications, email servers and large server farms as well as demanding video environments.”
