Jul 17, 2007

Amherst, NY (July 17, 2007) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announced today that its iPBridge™ 2600 and iPBridge™ 1550 iSCSI-to-SCSI bridge products have successfully completed interoperability testing with EMC Retrospect® for Mac OS X backup and recovery software. Customers can immediately benefit from a certified data protection solution when using ATTO iPBridges in iSCSI-based environments.

The ATTO iPBridge 2600 and iPBridge 1550 are designed to integrate SCSI devices into an iSCSI network. The iPBridge 2600 and iPBridge 1550 empower customers who want the ability to attach existing SCSI storage to an iSCSI-based network, enabling storage connectivity and consolidation at an affordable price. Users can leverage their current Ethernet network by providing the ability to attach or connect a SCSI tape library or other SCSI storage, and network them across an Ethernet IP-based network so multiple users can access existing storage devices.

The iPBridge 2600 offers iSCSI connectivity to native SCSI devices via four independent iSCSI ports and two independent Ultra320 SCSI busses. It allows storage devices to operate at near- native speeds with throughput at over 1TB/hr. The iPBridge 1550 offers iSCSI connectivity to native SCSI devices via one independent iSCSI port to one independent Ultra160 SCSI port, providing throughput of up to 400GB/hr. EMC Retrospect's patented technology enables fast, reliable restores of individual files, directories, or entire file systems with unparalleled accuracy. 

“Enabling storage centralization and consolidation at an extremely affordable price, the ATTO iPBridge 1550 and the iPBridge 2600 allow data centers and small-to-midsize businesses to maximize their ROI by utilizing existing storage resources as shared storage,” states Ed Tierney, director of marketing at ATTO Technology. “Utilizing ATTO iPBridges with EMC  Retrospect software delivers a solution that makes it easier and more cost effective to deploy networked storage with reliable and robust data protection.”
