ATTO Technology, Inc. announced the launch of 16Gb/s FC solutions consisting of Celerity HBAs, FibreConnect switches and FastStream RAID storage controllers.


These products provide users the ability to create a infrastructure that delivers speed, capacity storage on multiple platforms.

The 16Gb/s family, along with ATTO's portfolio of network and storage connectivity products, was showcased at IBC 2012 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, September 7 through September 11. ATTO products were also featured in over 45 partner demonstrations throughout the show.

"For 25 years ATTO has been a leader in providing the media and entertainment industry the most innovative and ultra high-performance products," said Wayne Arvidson, VP of marketing at ATTO. "Our full portfolio of 16Gb/s FC offerings are designed to boost performance for applications such as content creation and data management by delivering greater bandwidth to new and existing SANs."

Celerity 16Gb FC HBAs are based on the PCIe 3.0 technology to deliver the high bandwidth and low latency, as well as reliable and scalable connectivity with twice the maximum throughput of previous solutions.

They address the needs of workflows including capture, edit, content management and distribution with faster and more efficient data transfers featuring ATTO's Advanced Data Streaming technology for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux environments, as well as high IOPS IT environments.

FibreConnect 1600
series of 16Gb FC switches are engineered to deliver reliable data transfer on a SAN - a critical component for applications such as video streaming and virtualized environments. When combined with Celerity 16Gb/s HBA's, FibreConnect switches provide complete SAN connectivity with high-bandwidth, low latency and the low power consumption.

The FastStream 9000 is a 16Gb/s FC RAID Storage Controller that allows users to attach to low cost SAS/SATA JBOD storage creating a RAID protected, high-capacity and low latency solution. The controllers enable small to medium sized studios to incorporate a collaborative project environment for ingest, editing, and rendering high definition video, digital film and audio.

With the addition of Celerity HBAs and FibreConnect switches, users can incorporate a 'pay-as-you-grow' approach to supporting additional client connectivity. They are available in desktop or embeddable form factors.

"ATTO's 16Gb/s FC innovations builds on our solid foundation of 16 years as a leader in FC technology," added Arvidson.
