ATTO/Facilis Storage Solutions

Facilis Technology was founded in 2003 to bring advanced shared storage to television and film post production at a reasonable price. Facilis is staffed by industry veterans in post production product development, broadcast facility engineering and creative video editorial. The TerraBlock product is at the center of content creation workflow in over a thousand industry-leading facilities worldwide.

Overview

From simple direct connect 8Gb & 16Gb Fibre Channel from ATTO to mixed 1Gb & 10Gb Ethernet and Fibre, the TerraBlock is flexible and robust. Create your own facility production network around TerraBlock: add asset management and archive; connect network clients to the same virtual volumes used by fibre connected workstations, or isolate the workgroup outside your IT environment. Anything is possible.

Facilis found success integrating ATTO Fibre Channel and SAS products with the TerraBlock storage arrays. Facilis Technology is consistently focused on increasing the performance of their products; by working closely with ATTO, Facilis was able to find a combination that dramatically improved the performance of the TerraBlock. The decision to incorporate ATTO into Facilis products was based on its industry-proven technology, as well as the outstanding customer support they provide.
