PCIe 4 and ATTO Exclusive Technologies Combine for Unbeatable Performance

As PCIe 4 adoption spreads throughout the industry, customers are seeing key workflow components from GPUs and NVMe components to SSDs becoming faster than ever before. The same is true for storage network connectivity components like Generation 7 PCIe 4 Fibre Channel HBAs and 12Gb SAS HBAs from ATTO.

PCI Express 4 is the first major change to the standard since PCIe 3 was finalized in November 2010. The biggest advantage to upgrading to PCIe 4 over previous generations is speed. PCIe Gen 4 technology doubles its available data transfer rate over the previous generation.

This increase in bandwidth facilitates improved data access capabilities so that servers can analyze more data for real-time insights and access shared data quicker to fully utilizing the speed and features of NVMe. Data-intensive applications like Cloud, AI development, Machine Learning, and 4K and 8K video are seeing noticeable improvements by upgrading to the new standards.

ATTO Technology supports PCIe 4 across its product lines. ATTO Celerity™ 32Gb Gen 7 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) and ATTO ExpressSAS® SAS HBAs are available by contacting ATTO.

All of our products include exclusive is built-in latency management technology ATTO Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™). Advanced Data Streaming manages latency to provide controlled acceleration for smooth data streaming to maintain the highest consistent performance. ADS ensures best-in-industry data transfers for high-bandwidth applications, which means better performance for end-users.

System builders and OEMs can also take advantage of ATTO Target Mode Driver for ExpressSAS GT and Gen 7 Celerity HBAs. This driver unlocks programming and fine-tuning flexibility for virtually unlimited performance possibilities. Developers can easily elevate their product well above the competition and stand out as a performance leader by custom crafting drivers for their storage solution. These solutions can evolve with customer needs and without forklift upgrades requiring all new hardware.

ATTO offers proven performance based on over 30 years of experience developing and innovating connectivity solutions. PCIe 4, Gen 7 Fibre Channel, exclusive ATTO technologies like Advanced Data Streaming and ATTO Target Mode driver all combine to create a roster of exceptionally high-performance connectivity products. OEMs, IEMs, system builders and others interested in taking advantage of this performance evolution should contact ATTO directly for details.
