Amherst, NY (March 8, 2012) — ATTO Technology, Inc., today introduced the ATTO Desklink™ category of products for mobile devices, laptops and ultrabooks. Similar to host bus adapters and bridges, Desklink devices are the latest breakthrough in ATTO's portfolio of next generation, high-performance storage and network connectivity offerings. This technology allows a variety of portable devices that typically incorporate FireWire and USB connections access to other storage protocols including Fibre Channel, SAS/SATA and Ethernet. The line is being launched with the introduction of ATTO's new ThunderLink® and ThunderStream® Desklinks devices.
The ThunderLink® family allows Thunderbolt-enabled products to leverage ATTO's latest technology for access to Fibre Channel and SAS/SATA storage as well as Ethernet network connectivity previously unavailable for portable devices. They are an ideal solution for environments such as medical imaging and video rendering.
The ThunderStream® line further enhances this connectivity and consists of embedded or desktop SAS/SATA RAID Storage Controller products. They are designed to optimize unified storage typically found in the media and entertainment market.
“We are pleased to announce ATTO Desklink™ devices as our latest technology category,” said Timothy J. Klein, president and CEO at ATTO Technology. “The launch of ThunderLink® and ThunderStream® signifies our initial offerings in what will make up a comprehensive line of Desklink performance devices. ATTO is proud to be on the forefront of the next generation of connectivity solutions that help meet growing storage and network demands.”
Desklink live demonstrations will be shown at NAB 2012 in Las Vegas, NV, April 16-19, including a ThunderLink® utilizing a linear tape file system array and a ThunderStream® embedded unit. Both solutions can be viewed in the ATTO booth located in the South Hall, number SL6320 as well as in a number of Access™ partner booths throughout the show.
