Workstation-based applications are used by creative professionals in Media and Entertainment, as well as other Big Data environments. Advancements in file sizes and project complexity have pushed users to grow their storage footprint exponentially. ATTO has been proven to provide the most reliable products powering high-performance audio and video workflow, including 2K and 4K digital production, high-definition video editing and rich-content creation.
High-Availability Mac® and Windows® Workstation Connectivity to EMC® Storage
ATTO Technology, Inc. has been providing high-performance storage connectivity and infrastructure products for 25 years. ATTO, in collaboration with EMC, is the only HBA manufacturer providing high-availability Mac and Windows workstation connectivity to EMC Symmetrix® VMAX, VNX ® and VNXe, as well as EMC legacy storage products such as CLARiiON® and Celerra® storage systems, enabling high-performance, completely redundant storage connectivity.
The combination of ATTO's Fibre Channel HBAs and EMC enterprise-class storage systems provide:
The only Mac and Windows workstation connectivity solution to EMC Symmetrix® VMAX, VNX ® and VNXe, as well as EMC legacy storage products such as CLARiiON® and Celerra® storage systems
High-performance for rich content applications
Shared storage solution for Mac and Windows workstations
Reduced downtime via redundant connections to storage
Evolving Storage Connectivity for Content
& Rich Media Creation, Production & Distribution
Today's challenges are well known for midsize and departmental production, with increasing storage requirements due to higher resolution and 3D projects, reducing complexity and management, and adding portable and mobile devices into the workflow.
EMC Isilon Scale-Out NAS deploys easily into existing media and entertainment workflows and utilizes standard file-sharing protocols over existing Gigabit and 10Gb Ethernet infrastructures. ATTO FastFrame Ethernet NICs provide smooth, predictable, low-latency 10Gb connectivity for Mac OS X, Windows 8/7, Windows 2012/2008 and Linux clients into this environment. In addition, ATTO's new ThunderLink™ Desklink™ devices enable Thunderbolt-to-10GbE connectivity to all-in-ones, laptops and other portable Thunderbolt-enabled devices to connect into the 10GbE infrastructure.
A network featuring ATTO 10GbE solutions allow EMC Isilon users:
The ability to connect servers, workstations, all-in-one systems, laptops and integrated computers to EMC Isilon storage systems
The ease of use of a shared network volume
Throughput previously restricted to a more complex Fibre Channel Storage Area Network (SAN)
High performance & flexibility for scenarios such as remote editing and file access
iSCSI SAN Connectivity for EMC® iSCSI Storage Arrays
ATTO Technology's Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator for Mac OS® X is the first and most widely-distributed iSCSI initiator that allows Mac users to attach to storage connected via an Ethernet-based network.
Xtend SAN provides iSCSI SAN connectivity, error handling and security for enterprise-class EMC CLARiiON®, Celerra® and VNX® networked storage systems. With Xtend SAN, EMC customers can consolidate Mac workstations, laptops and servers into a storage area network (SAN) and extend SAN advantages to multiple departments or remote locations.
