Add NVMe to Your Network Storage Architecture with ATTO

Enterprise customers are looking at migrating to flash block storage and want options that maximize performance.  Some of these customers have a lot invested in their existing SAN architecture and may see adopting flash storage as more than just a simple upgrade.

ATTO Celerity™ Gen 6 32Gb and 16Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) natively support FC-NVMe making them a future-proof investment. Celerity adapters can run FCP and FC-NVMe at the same time, providing the flexibility to migrate to flash storage at a convenient, cost-effective pace using the same network hardware.

Our FC-NVMe drivers provide the lowest latency storage server solutions available and are 20% faster than the competition.  ATTO HBAs support target mode and with our drivers OEMs and system builders can tailor FC-NVMe storage systems to suit their needs.

ATTO has solutions for Ethernet-based architectures as well.  ATTO FastFrame™ 3 NICswith RDMA technology provides the ability to utilize NVMe over Fabrics and feature ATTO Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) Technology to manage latency.  With these advanced technologies built in, ATTO FastFrame NICs can provide sufficient bandwidth for data-intensive applications like streaming raw 4K and 8K video.

ATTO has the solution with our support of NVMe over Fabrics. NVMe is a new protocol designed to take advantage of Flash/SSD technology by streamlining I/O procedures.  NVMe allows users to unlock the full potential of Flash storage technology to produce unheard of performance.

If you are a system architect interested in creating NVMe-based solutions, contact us to see how ATTO can help.  We are laying the foundation for tomorrow’s all-flash data centers today thanks to our decades-long experience of delivering reliable, first-to-market storage connectivity solutions.
