Apr 17, 2007

Storage Networking World, San Diego, CA (April 17, 2007) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, is showcasing its FastStream™ Storage Controller appliance, its new ExpressSAS® SAS/SATA RAID adapters, and its 4th Generation 4-Gb Celerity™ Fibre Channel host adapters as solutions that enhance IT and digital media workflow productivity and protect critical storage.  ATTO product displays will be located through out the Storage Networking World Spring 2007 conference hosted April 16- 19 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego, California.

Located in the Expo Hall Booth PP-19, ATTO will display its FastStream Storage Controller appliance. The FastStream appliance line addresses the need to add RAID protection to critical data without suffering the performance impact associated with more traditional solutions.  Also in the Expo Hall, ATTO's newly shipping ExpressSAS® RAID adapters will be incorporated in a SAS technology demonstration at the Intel Booth.  ATTO's ExpressSAS® adapters provide high-performance RAID protection for SAS/SATA storage solutions, today's fastest growing storage connectivity technology.  In the main gallery, ATTO Technology, hosted by their technology partner, PMC-Sierra, will display the latest model in ATTO's industry leading 4-Gb Fibre Channel product line.  With this model, ATTO extends its position as the first and longest shipping manufacturer of 4-Gb Fibre Channel adapters in the world.

Designed as slim 1U 19” external rack that integrates into existing SCSI storage, FastStream adds data protection and storage networking.  FastStream provides 480 MB/sec. performance with cutting-edge 4-Gb Fibre Channel SAN connectivity and/or Ultra320 interfaces for easy connectivity to any SCSI or Fibre Channel storage.  Designed to enable direct-attached storage to become part of a storage area network, FastStream allows unused storage to be reclaimed and made available to the servers that need it most.  The FastStream Storage Controller is JBOD and RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 configurable.  Adding RAID to existing storage devices guarantees high storage availability prevents data loss and eliminates failures from individual storage systems.  Existing RAID volumes can be expanded, mirrors added or RAID levels changed dynamically while keeping all data intact.  The provisioning feature enables optimal use of storage assets and the ability to modify the storage infrastructure with minimal or no disruption to application services.  Management is simple with the ATTO ExpressNAV™ integrated management console – an intuitive point-and-click interface allows for remote configuration, management and diagnostics.

ATTO is now shipping its new ExpressSAS® SAS/SATA RAID adapter featuring DVRAID™ that provides parity protection in high-bandwidth environments.  The ATTO ExpressSAS® RAID Adapter family provides SAS/SATA II connectivity and delivers blazing-fast 3-Gb/sec. per port performance for IT and digital media users requiring the highest performance SAS RAID solutions.  It is the industry's only low-profile line of adapters offering user selectable port configuration options.  Providing advanced fault-tolerant features that include hot swap, hot spares, online capacity expansion, battery back-up, and optimized disk utilization for SAS/SATA or SATA II drives or any combination, the ATTO ExpressSAS® R348 and R380 adapters deliver an intelligent and robust RAID solution.  These low-profile adapters support standard RAID levels 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60 and feature ATTO's exclusive DVRAID, making them capable of handling the most demanding applications such as 2K and 4K film, multiple layers of complex , uncompressed real-time effects, and high definition video editing.

“Storage Networking World provides us the opportunity to demonstrate how ATTO solutions support high-bandwidth and data protection applications in a multitude of environments.  The multiple product displays showcase how ATTO storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions simplify IT and digital media workflow while ensuring protection of critical and expensive data,” states Ed Tierney, director of marketing for ATTO Technology, Inc.
