We’re Celebrating 30 Years of Successful Partnerships
ATTO is celebrating 30 years at the forefront of connectivity technology and, without a doubt, a major factor in our success has been our partnerships. We’d like to thank all of our partners over the years for their friendship and support!
We thought it would be fun to focus on some of our longer term partners and talk about how we work together to bring innovative products to the market. In this installment, we will look at Facilis Technology, a true innovator in storage solutions.
Based in Massachusetts, Facilis was launched in 2003 and has grown into an industry-leading provider of cost-effective, high performance video shared storage systems and dynamic workflow solutions for the film, broadcast and AV markets.
The Facilis Shared File System is unique in the market, allowing connections over Fibre Channel and Ethernet, with a custom protocol that avoids the overhead and latencies of network storage systems. They also have the ability to run at full speed even when completely full, a trait that cannot be found in any other storage system.
Early in their growth, Facilis found success integrating ATTO products with their shared storage systems. Focused on increasing the performance of their products, Facilis worked closely with ATTO to find the hardware and software combinations that optimize the performance of their solutions. Indeed, working together, Facilis and ATTO put next-generation Fibre Channel (FC) products on the market.
Facilis today uses a wide range of ATTO products to supplement their systems, including FC, Ethernet, SAS RAID, SAS and Thunderbolt™ hardware. Most recently, Facilis specified ATTO Celerity™ 32Gb/s FC HBAs for their Hub Server, perhaps the fastest storage system of its type available. As technology evolves, speeds get faster, and storage needs grow, look for Facilis to meet and exceed the market’s demand with a little help from their partners at ATTO.
