Amherst, NY (November 10, 2014) - ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage, network connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announced today it is showing its family of high-performance products at the 2014 Supercomputing (SC14) International Conference on high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis November 17-20 in New Orleans.
Located in booth 3357 in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, ATTO will highlight how by integrating the new FibreBridge® 7500 Storage Controller into their infrastructure, users can create a high performance storage solution with an unprecedented level of performance. The live in-booth demonstration will feature ATTO's new groundbreaking 7500 connected to a server via ATTO's 16Gb Celerity™ Fibre Channel host bus adapters. Additionally, to highlight the 7500's extremely high IO capability, the demo will use an industry standard JBOD configured with HGST's enterprise-class Ultrastar® 12Gb/s SAS solid-state drives (SSDs).
"HGST has collaborated with ATTO for many years as we have a shared vision of addressing the storage and data infrastructure needs of today's complex enterprise environments," said Ulrich Hansen, vice president of SSD Product Marketing at HGST. "We look forward to our continued relationship with ATTO especially as they introduce even more unique technologies like the 7500, which helps our customers prepare their next-generation high-performance data center infrastructures."
The addition of the 7500 into the FibreBridge® storage controller line enables users to manage storage infrastructures with features not found in direct connect technologies. With up to 1.47 million IOPs with dual controllers, the 7500 serves as the key building block in a modular solution that forms an ideal platform for building out tiered high-speed SSD and high-capacity HDD solutions that aggregate up to 2.4 PB of storage while using HGSTs' upcoming 10 TB drives. With less than four microseconds of latency for transfers between storage and server platforms, the 7500 allows for data mobility and redundancy via multisite cluster installations up to hundreds of kilometers apart.
ATTO's 7500 leverages the highly reliable and proven technology introduced by the FibreBridge® 6500 that leading storage companies have installed in thousands of data centers worldwide. Both products feature ATTO's Drive Map Director™ technology, which reduces support expenses by eliminating manual mapping of LUNs and the need to remap LUNs if a drive shelf is removed for maintenance or failure. The 6500, which also adds integration of SAS tape storage into a Fibre Channel SAN, is designed around ATTO's intelligent Controller Architecture. This combines powerful hardware with an efficient data engine to create a platform that delivers performance with a rapid IO ramp and extremely low latency. Also included is ATTO's Virtual Device Response (VDR) technology, which enables devices to queue and execute commands on behalf of busy or unresponsive tape storage, and reduces the number of failed or incomplete backups.
Other products to be showcased:
"As an industry leader, ATTO has provided unique products over the past 26 years, that meet the most demanding needs found in today's scientific, medical, engineering and other high performance environments which are represented at SC14" said Wayne Arvidson, vice president of marketing and channels at ATTO Technology, Inc. "SC14 is the key venue for ATTO to highlight our technology differentiators to the HPC community and share the innovations that have enhanced faster time to data, analytics, scientific research and critical business decisions worldwide."
