ATTO XstreamCORE ET 8200 Adds Ethernet Connectivity to Dell EMC ML3 SAS Libraries

ATTO Technology is excited to share the news thatATTO XstreamCORE® ET 8200 accelerated bridges and Dell EMC ML3 SAS Tape Libraries are available together from Dell EMC as combined Ethernet tape archive solutions. The combo allows remote connections to SAS tape drives over standard Ethernet networks with greater speed and without the high cost of specialized hardware.

ATTO XstreamCORE ET 8200 utilizes multiple parallel I/O acceleration engines working together to move data at an extremely fast rate. Using the lossless RDMA Ethernet protocol iSER (iSCSI Extensions for RDMA) and hardware accelerated iSCSI, XstreamCORE ET 8200 integrates with SAS storage to create high-performance shared Ethernet storage solutions.

Dell EMC ML3 Tape Libraries utilize the latest LTO tape technologies and are easy to configure, manage, and scale. Thanks to the reliability and resilience of tape, Dell EMC ML3 tape solutions provide secure back-ups that can be automated on a schedule that suits the workflow of the environment.

With both products, customers get an uncomplicated archive solution with advanced monitoring and management capabilities that requires fewer switch ports. Additionally, the combo delivers better throughput performance than native SAS thanks to an exclusive ATTO technology, ATTO SpeedWrite™.

ATTO SpeedWrite keeps paths between attached hosts and XstreamCORE ET 8200 filled with data to significantly boost write performance to Dell EMC ML3 tape libraries. Multiple hosts can each communicate to different tape drives while all hosts benefit from the early response mechanism built into SpeedWrite. The result is that tape performance is boosted by up to 25 percent over direct connect SAS tape drives.

There is also the advantage of two trusted brands working together to create needed solutions. Customers gain peace of mind knowing their equipment is supported by manufacturers with a proven history of creating quality, innovative products with long service lifetimes.

XstreamCORE ET 8200/ Dell EMC ML3 combos are available exclusively through Dell EMC. Ask your Dell sales representative for details.
