Moreover, with the wider bandwidth, the combination of ATTO HBAs and Infortrend
storage is a solution to meet the demands of
server and workstation-based applications seen in media and entertainment,
HPC, data centers and other performance-critical workflows.
Motion pictures and home media environments are increasingly employing
4K UHD. Infortrend's 16G FC storage combined with ATTO's Celerity 16G HBAs allow
users to edit multiple streams of 4K UHD simultaneously. This
storage solution powers high performance streaming media applications
that support increasing resolution and frame rate requirements. When coupled
with ATTO's MultiPath Director technology, a solution to
connect both servers and workstations directly to enterprise storage, users are
provided with improved productivity while protecting their data.
16G FC HBAs provide performance, one-click
tuning for ensuring performance, compatibility and customized
driver support for meeting the demands of specialized applications. Infortrend
satisfies the demand for 16G FC storage and recently
started shipping a lineup of 16G FC solutions. Together, both Infortrend
and ATTO's solutions provide a base on which to build a next-generation
16G FC infrastructure and users are encouraged to adopt the
16G technology to maximize the potential of their FC
networks. As a result, Infortrend prices the 16G FC storage identically to its
8G storage until August 31, 2013.
"For 25 years, ATTO has created a
series of industry firsts, such as the first Quad Channel 16G HBA,"
said Wayne Arvidson, VP marketing, ATTO. "Working with Infortrend to leverage those innovations for the 16G FC
ecosystem is further proof of our commitment to deliver innovative storage and
network connectivity solutions that solve the toughest challenges facing
organizations both today and in the future."
"Infortrend constantly pushes the
boundaries of networked storage and appreciates working alongside an innovator
like ATTO," said Thomas Kao, senior director of product planning,
Infortrend, adding, "This
partnership optimizes our 16G FC solutions and we hope that customers looking
to invest in next-generation performance will benefit from the enhanced
