G-Tech G-SPEED Storage Array Solutions


ATTO's ExpressSAS®™ RAID host bus adapters (HBAs) have been qualified by Hitachi for use with G-Technology®'s G-SPEED® eS PRO enclosure storage system. Combining ATTO's ExpressSAS® RAID HBAs and G-Technology's G-SPEED eS PRO enclosure provides an integrated solution that supports real-time HD and film production, including dual-stream uncompressed 10-bit 1080/60i and 2K DPX playback in RAID 5 protected mode.

Our G-SPEED eS PRO storage array provides high-speed data transfers to meet the needs of the most demanding video and film professionals. Combining our enclosures with ATTO's R680 adapters allows us to sustain close to 1000MB/sec speeds with RAID protection in a quiet, cool and reliable desktop solution. Complementing our quality commitment, our decision to offer ATTO with our products was based on its strong presence in the media and entertainment market as well as its time-tested technology.
