Target Mode SDK
There are many storage
solutions on the market and, if storage solutions are your business, you need a
way to make your solution stand out from the crowd. The question is how do you make your product rise
above the rest and make a profit?
As a full-service
provider of embeddable and PCIe-based connectivity solutions, ATTO Technology can
serve in differentiating your product with high-performance and painless
integration while helping to maintain your margins.
you add ATTO Host Bus Adapters (HBA) to your storage platform, you gain access
to our exclusive technologies, which were conceived and created based on
30-plus years of connectivity experience. These include ATTO Advanced
Data Streaming™, a
proprietary latency management technology that smooths data transfers through
technologies alone differentiate your product, but ATTO takes it step further by
providing our Target Mode Driver Software Development Kit (SDK). ATTO Target Mode SDK gives developers complete
control and flexibility in creating custom capabilities that differentiate
their products without tying up internal resources and yet can be simplified
enough to push product out to market quickly.
Target Mode Driver is a specialized driver that makes any storage device appear
as native Fibre Channel and SAS. Available for ATTO
Celerity™ Fibre Channel HBAsand ATTO ExpressSAS® SAS/SATA HBAs, it provides the ability to run both
initiator and target-mode devices with a single driver.
You can implement ATTO
Target Mode via industry standard, and therefore more accessible, interfaces or
use our highly customizable interface.
LIO (Linux I/O) and SCST (SCSI Target Subsystem) present an interface
into several off-the-shelf preset modules that include virtual and physical
disks, RAID controllers, and tape, where devices can use any link that supports
SCSI-style data exchange. Similar
options are available for illumos and FreeBSD.
The custom ATTO SCSI Target
Mode Driver interface unlocks programming and fine-tuning flexibility for virtually
unlimited performance possibilities. With this, developers can elevate their
product well above the competition and stand out as a performance leader. By custom crafting drivers for your storage
solution, you are in complete control of performance specifications,
compatibility, and integration.
Performance tuning isn’t
the only advantage gained by using ATTO drivers. Simplify management through ATTO ConfigTool™ with which administration,
troubleshooting and management of multiple paths to storage are organized and streamlined.
ATTO MultiPath Director™ provides flexible connectivity
where Windows®, Linux and Mac® workstations can be mixed in a heterogeneous
If building your own
storage solution, you need to factor in connectivity performance and
integration. Thankfully, you do not need
to settle on low performing, inflexible hardware that will only serve as a
bottleneck. You also don’t have to hit
the drawing board and take the time to develop something optimized for your
solution. ATTO has the technology ready now
and our Target Mode SDK will allow you to integrate it perfectly with the rest
of your solution, saving time and adding value.
