ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of network, storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments for over 35 years, announced today its new lineup of ATTO FastFrame™ Fourth Generation Ethernet SmartNICs.
The fourth generation ATTO FastFrame SmartNICs product line features four unique models supporting high-speed Ethernet standards from 10GbE to 100GbE and high-performance x8 PCIe 3.0 or x16 PCIe 4.0.
With data rates up to 100GbE and latency as low as 1µs, ATTO FastFrame SmartNICs are ideal for media & entertainment applications such as video post-production, finishing, imaging, archiving and workgroup file sharing, as well as IT applications such as data analytics, high-performance computing (HPC) clusters, hyper-converged servers, AI/ML/DL, and unstructured data solutions.
“Ethernet technology continues to evolve and it’s astonishing how advanced it is now,” said Timothy J. Klein, president and CEO, ATTO Technology. “Our fourth generation FastFrame SmartNIC products bring these advancements to the market in a super high-performance, extremely easy-to-implement technology package.”
FastFrame SmartNICs are supported by ATTO Ethernet Suite, a custom installer application that loads relevant drivers, ATTO 360™ management utility, and all dependencies needed to transport data via RDMA. Ethernet Suite opens up next-generation Ethernet to everyone by automating the exceptionally complex process of setting up a high-performance network including implementing RDMA.
ATTO 360 Tuning, Monitoring, and Analytics Software is an Ethernet network optimization application that unlocks the full potential of networks when used with ATTO FastFrame NICs and ATTO ThunderLink® Thunderbolt™ to Ethernet adapters. With only a few clicks from a single management panel, ATTO 360 achieves the highest possible network performance with pre-configured tuning profiles and intelligent diagnostics that identify problems before they can occur.
FastFrame SmartNICs have built-in hardware offload engines, including CPU transport layer offloading and NVMe over Fabric target offloading to accelerate data and reduce server overhead. Installations relying on SSDs will realize improvements in storage operations thanks to native NVMe support.
