High-Availability Connectivity for HP Storage
HP Tech Forum, Las Vegas, NV (June 21, 2010) – ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, today announced that it will be showing its HP qualified storage connectivity products at HP Technology Forum in Las Vegas, NV. Featured products include ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel HBAs, Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator and ExpressPCI SCSI HBAs. ATTO products provide HP customers with new opportunities to implement high-availability and high-performance storage connectivity solutions into bandwidth intensive media & entertainment and general IT environments.
The ATTO Celerity line of 8Gb/s and 4Gb/s Fibre Channel Host Adapters have been qualified for use with HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Arrays (EVA) as a high-availability enterprise storage solution for the Mac® market. This solution is designed to enhance workflows and increase productivity by keeping content available in real time for multiple users. Celerity Fibre Channel HBAs feature ATTO’s proprietary MultiPath Director™, a feature-rich solution that provides multiple redundant paths to HP Storage for high-availability access to data. With automatic path failover and load balancing capabilities, ATTO Fibre Channel host bus adapters, with MultiPath Director technology, provide uninterrupted access data and help create a shared storage environment that allows users to efficiently collaborate on projects and consolidate storage resources.
ATTO’s Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator provides iSCSI SAN connectivity, error handling and security for HP storage systems in Mac OS X environments. It is the first, and most widely-distributed standalone iSCSI initiator that allows Mac users to attach, and load balance, storage connected via an Ethernet-based network. With Xtend SAN, users can remotely access iSCSI storage from multiple servers, increasing accessibility and simplifying storage management, while leveraging existing IT expertise. The combination of Xtend SAN and HP storage systems provides added value for customers whose environments require greater security and automation with features such as a scriptable Command Line Interface, Header and Data Digests, CHAP and iSNS support.
ATTO is also showing ExpressPCI UL5D Low-Profile HBAs that provide high-performance SCSI connectivity for combined with HP MSL Tape libraries. ATTO and HP have teamed together to deliver this solution to HP customers to provide the performance needed for LTO-4 technology.
ATTO will have a sampling of its other product lines on hand for demonstration as well, including SAS/SATA RAID and Host Bus Adapters, RAID storage controllers, the newly-released 10GbE Network Adapters and bridging products that connect disk and tape storage to SAS, Fibre Channel and iSCSI SANs.
“ATTO continues to deliver high-end connectivity solutions to HP customers presenting new opportunities for HP customers to access storage media and digital content using HP Fibre Channel, iSCSI and SCSI storage systems” states Tom Kolniak, director of products for ATTO Technology. “We are pleased to work closely with HP to provide new opportunities for their customers to more efficiently transfer, manage and store their data.”
