ATTO Technology Partners with Toshiba to Demonstrate Advanced High-Capacity, High-Availability HDD Storage Solution

Certified data storage solution balances flexibility, performance and price while offering massive capacity

Sep 15, 2023

ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader in network and storage connectivity celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, is partnering with Toshiba to demonstrate an advanced high-capacity, high-availability HDD storage solution along with a high-density media storage benchmark September 15-18 at IBC 2023 in Amsterdam.

ATTO ExpressSAS® 12Gb SAS Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) and ATTO FastFrame™ 100GbE SmartNICs will power connectivity for an 800TB ZFS-based storage system demonstration in Toshiba’s stand (Stand 6.A27) at IBC. The post-production, media streaming and archiving showcase will utilize 60x 20TB hard disk drives in a live performance benchmark.

Toshiba’s setup includes ATTO ExpressSAS H120FGT 16 Internal Port 12Gb/s SAS/SATA to PCIe 4.0 Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) powering Toshiba SSDs inside a Supermicro server. Toshiba HDDs are connected to the server via ExpressSAS® H12F0GT 16 External Port 12Gb/s PCIe 4.0 HBAs. ATTO FastFrame N412 Dual Channel 100GbE x16 PCIe 4.0 SmartNICs are used for cluster transfers using RDMA.

"This is a well-conceived demo that shows the kind of performance you get when you put the right components together,” said Tim Klein, president and CEO, ATTO Technology. “Thanks to Toshiba for allowing us to show how our focus on latency management and driver optimization makes all of the difference in these applications."

The demonstration system is a jointly certified solution combining the cost-effectiveness of HDDs, incredible speed of NVMe-based caching devices, and state-of-the-art connectivity hardware and software. The result is a high-performance storage solution for real-world data production environments with an exceptional balance of performance and total cost of ownership (TCO).
