ATTO Xtend SAN iSCI Initiator is updated to version 5.5

Xtend SAN iSCI Initiator, the most popular iSCSI initiator for macOS®, has been updated to version 5.5.  With this update, ATTO Xtend SAN supports ALUA multipathing, allowing high availability with load balancing and failover for iSCSI storage on Macs.

Using ATTO Xtend SAN 5.5, a Mac® can easily connect to iSCSI storage area networks (SANs) over Ethernet-based networks.  Collaborate in digital video/audio workflows, access SAN storage from a laptop and backup files remotely even with limited IT budgets and resources.

The simplicity of iSCSI makes it the ideal storage networking protocol for macOS users who are accustomed to the legendary ease-of-use of macOS, as even non-technical users can set-up and manage a server with just a few mouse clicks.

iSCSI allows small businesses and workgroups to take full advantage of a SAN environment without requiring a Fibre Channel infrastructure. Workflows are not bound by location, allowing enhanced data protection by copying data to multiple remote sites for archive and disaster recovery.  Xtend SAN 5.5 enhances these capabilities with its multipathing feature, adding resiliency and reliability to network storage connections.

Xtend SAN has been rigorously tested with products from leading iSCSI manufacturers, ensuring a high degree of interoperability.  With a wide range of iSCSI products compatible with macOS, ATTO is proud to be a premier provider of iSCSI solutions for macOS users.
