Amherst, NY (March 14, 2007) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announced today that its newest Fibre Channel bridge, the ATTO FibreBridge® 2370E, is now shipping. Representing the latest in the company's innovative line of bridging products, the FibreBridge® 2370E is available in a small form factor (3.9”W x 7.995”L) that allows Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to integrate the bridge into space-constrained disk and tape storage devices, such as tape autoloaders and drives. With its unique dimensions, the FibreBridge® 2370E is a simple, cost-effective solution for OEMs to embed 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel connectivity into current and next generation SCSI-based storage.
The release of the FibreBridge® 2370E adds to ATTO's line of FibreBridge® products, which includes the FibreBridge® 2400C/R/D, featuring two 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel ports and two Ultra320 SCSI ports, and the FibreBridge® 2390C/R/D, offering one 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel port and two Ultra320 SCSI ports. Additionally, ATTO offers the iPBridge™ product line, an extensive line of iSCSI bridges, which ranges from basic connectivity-based solutions to mid-range Enterprise-class products.
The FibreBridge® 2370E offers benefits found on all ATTO FibreBridge®s, including:
"The release of the FibreBridge® 2370E reinforces ATTO's commitment to delivering cutting-edge bridging solutions for the changing needs of today's networked storage environments,” states Tom Kolniak, Manager of Products for ATTO Technology, Inc. “All ATTO FibreBridge®s now feature 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel and Ultra320 SCSI technology, allowing users to connect high-performance SCSI storage into 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel SANs. Also, the form factor of the FibreBridge® 2370E allows for integration into smaller enclosures, including tape autoloaders.”
“SER's strong commitment to offer the highest-reliability permanent storage solutions for automated archive, backup and recovery is directly in line with ATTO and their continued efforts to bring cost-effective, embeddable Fibre Channel Bridging solutions to the market,” said Torsten Weiler, General Manager of SER Storage Technology GmbH. “By integrating the ATTO FibreBridge® 2370E into our Jukebox JB6U and AIT Tape Library TLX products, we were given a simple path to add 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel connectivity to our SCSI storage products and enable our customers to utilize storage area networks for their archive solutions.”
As the latest addition to ATTO's line of 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel bridges, the FibreBridge® 2370E leverages ATTO's experience with bridging products to provide a cost-effective solution to add Fibre Channel connectivity to SCSI devices while offering a winning combination of performance, usability and affordability.
