ATTO Technology Announces Support for Windows® 8
Remains industry’s only provider offering enterprise class storage connectivity for both servers and workstations
“ATTO has worked closely with Microsoft® for over 15 years to give high–performance computing users access to the Windows operating system,” said Wayne Arvidson, vice president of marketing at ATTO. “We provide accessibility for corporate work group, departmental and enterprise level infrastructures, as well as those found in Big Data environments such as media and entertainment, oil and gas, CAD/CAE and medical imaging.”
Key features of Windows 8 include a fresh Metro user interface, added support for the ARM processor and Internet Explorer 10. Windows 8 also has significant changes to Hyper-V, including improved live migration, better support for Fibre Channel and more feature-rich virtual networking. In addition, the new server OS has improved management capabilities.
Included in ATTO’s broad portfolio of Windows® 8-qualified solutions are:
Celerity 16 and 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel HBAs incorporate industry-standard components into a unique architecture to deliver a robust and scalable connectivity solution. With features including Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™), a technology, that manages latency by providing controlled data acceleration for smooth transfers resulting in consistent performance in high-bandwidth applications and uninterrupted workflows, Celerity HBAs provide faster and more efficient data transfers. Additionally, MultiPath Director™ provides the unique ability to directly connect workstations, as well as servers to enterprise class storage in a heterogeneous environment.
ExpressSAS 6Gb/s SAS/SATA and RAID Adapters provide high performance data protection to direct attached SAS and SATA JBOD storage. With a wide variety of port configurations and RAID levels, these adapters offer flexibility for every range of application. Both adapter families incorporate ADS™, while ExpressSAS RAID cards come standard with DriveAssure™
In addition, RAID card users can take advantage of CacheAssure™
ATTO FastFrame NICs deliver high-performance I/O connectivity and lossless Ethernet support for improved iSCSI block storage access. Single, dual- and quad-port SFP+ configurations make ATTO FastFrame a complete portfolio for flexible design, ideal for low-latency applications.
