The ATTO FastStreamTM is the industry’s first 16Gb/s RAID Storage Controller and is an ideal
choice for customers needing a low-cost, shared storage infrastructure without a complex system.
It allows users to edit up to six streams of uncompressed HD video or three streams of 4k RAW.
The FastStream offers pay-as-you-grow flexibility as storage requirements expand by allowing
access to multiple JBODs of RAID protected storage.
ATTO’s 16Gb/s and 8Gb/s Fibre Channel family represents the industry’s first complete SAN
connectivity solution made up of HBAs, RAID Controllers and Switches. It includes the industry’s
only quad-port HBA that allows data transfers of over 6,000 MB/s, a superior choice for streaming
media applications. ATTO’s latest 16Gb/s Fibre Channel solutions provide double the
performance of 8Gb systems while preserving existing storage infrastructure investment.
ThunderLinkTM and ThunderStreamTM Desklink™ products provide high-performance storage and
network connectivity for Thunderbolt™-enabled devices. They allow powerful new portable devices
such as all-in-ones, Ultrabooks and laptops to connect to external 6Gb SAS/SATA storage, 8Gb
Fibre Channel and 10Gb Ethernet networks for on location, on-set or in-suite editing and
management of data. ThunderStream adds RAID protection to SAS or SATA storage and both
solutions now support Windows® 8.
ATTO’s ExpressSAS/SATA 12Gb/s and 6Gb/s solutions are engineered to specifically meet the
needs of direct attached storage found in high-performance media and entertainment workflows.
Representing the latest advances in SAS technology, ATTO’s new 12Gb/s HBAs achieve up to
8,000 MB/s to enhance the performance of streaming media applications today while being ready
next generation platforms and infrastructures. In addition, this demonstration features another
breakthrough in storage availability and performance, ATTO’s Adaptive Path Optimization (APO)
feature. APO improves RAID group reliability by eliminating single points of failure and
automatically tunes connection pathways to deliver predictable performance and uninterrupted
workflows via a single cable.
ATTO FastFrame™ NICs and CNAs offer a complete portfolio of 10GbE connectivity aggressively tuned for audio and video workflows that outperform competitive products by up to 25 percent. Quad-, dual-, and single-port CNAs and SFP+ NICs all include high-quality SFPs, and may also be used with Direct Attach Copper cabling. Single- and dual-port 10GBASE-T cards are built on the industry's first single-chip, low-power 10GBASE-T controller by Intel. All FastFrame adapters include iSCSI support and have drivers for Windows® servers and workstations, multiple Linux distributions, and Mac® OS X.
ATTO’s Multipath Director™, the world’s only technology that allows direct connectivity to enterprise storage not just for servers, but also workstations. As the only universal SAN connectivity solution for Mac, Windows and Linux workstations and server environments, it increases productivity while protecting data through load-balancing and fail-over. Additionally, direct workstation connection to storage eliminates server latency resulting in improved real-time performance.
