MultiPath Director™ is a specialized multipathing driver incorporated into ATTO's Celerity Fibre Channel host bus adapters and Thunderbolt devices that enables Linux®* , Windows®* , or Mac® workstations and/or servers to connect to enterprise-class storage. Multipath Director™ implemented across all hosts improves overall Fibre Channel SAN efficiency with consistent uninterrupted access to your data through failover and load balancing protection.
MultiPath Director, when paired with enterprise-class storage systems, provides a completely redundant, high-performance storage solution for workstation and server applications. MultiPath Director ensures deadlines are met through high availability access to data for multiple users, enabling the swift and efficient completion of projects.
Load balancing across multiple paths to storage increases overall system performance by using more than one Fibre Channel path to transfer data. This functionality, combined with ATTO’s exclusive Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) latency-management technology, ensures the highest consistent performance. Thus making Celerity Fibre Channel host bus adapters the best choice for enterprise-class connectivity.
With automatic path failover and failback, MultiPath Director allows multiple workstations or servers to continually access the same ’pool’ of storage. Real time and simultaneous access to data enables workgroups or single users to create efficient workflows that save time and money, while dramatically increasing a project’s time to completion.
The ATTO Configuration Tool, a standard offering with Celerity Fibre Channel HBAs, is an easy-to-use GUI for maintaining configuring, monitoring, managing and troubleshooting multiple connections between the storage and the host systems.
Celerity 16Gb/s and 8Gb/s quad, dual, and single-channel Fibre Channel HBAs are qualified for use with a wide array of high-end, enterprise-class storage systems from leading storage providers.
