ATTO FibreBridge® products are performance tuned, highly manageable, intelligent devices which allow fibre channel initiators to communicate with SAS/SATA target devices with very low latency.
ATTO Fibrebridge products are engineered to effectively transfer data with minimal overhead from multiple combinations of protocols and custom applications to meet specific customer needs.
ATTO intelligent Controller Architecture™ technology combines powerful hardware with an efficient software data engine to deliver valuable features with the flexibility of "anything to anything" connectivity. Examples of anything to any- thing protocol interaction include FC to SAS,FC to iSCSI, FCoE to SAS, FC to SATA, FC to InfiniBand and Ethernet to NVME.
ATTO FibreBridge products are specifically designed to allow data center infrastructures to easily connect SAS HDD, JBODs and tape devices into Fibre Channel based Storage Area Networks. This cost effective solution can allow both your existing legacy SAS & SATA based storage as well as your new storage to co-exist in an easy to manage, centralized storage pool or within your existing SAN.
One of the clear benefits of moving direct attached devices to a SAN is that you can pool your storage to get better utilization across multiple servers. With the on-the-fly re-configurability of the ATTO FibreBridge®, it is easy to reallocate those storage resources to other servers or extend them into larger pools while adding features such as device mapping and virtualization.
The ATTO FibreBridge is used worldwide in many Extended Cluster environments where IT architectures require great distances between storage pools to provide data replication and resiliency. City-to-city or inter-Campus clusters can easily be architected using ATTO FibreBridge. ATTO along with several of our partner’s software components have predefined recipes to easily build a reliable and proven solution.
ATTO FibreBridge products are fully complaint with Fibre Channel and SAS specifications to assure ease of installation and flawless operation. Whether you need rack mounted, desktop, or an embedded form-factor, the ATTO FibreBridge family has you covered.
ExpressNAV™ system manager is a remote management user interface for configuration, monitoring and management of ATTO FibreBridge products. Advanced tuning features include; performance monitoring, diagnostic and troubleshooting capabilities, and phone home email notification.
