ATTO Showcases Line of 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel SolutionsATTO and Agilent demo next-generation PCI Express solutions at Storage Networking World (October 19, 2005)
ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, will showcase a complete line of 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel solutions and first-to-market 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel (4-Gb FC) products based on the PCI-Express (PCIe) system bus and Agilent Technologies Tachyon Fibre Channel controllers. These products are on display at Storage Networking World in the Agilent Kiosk 20 in the Platinum Galleria through Oct. 27.
The ever-increasing amount of corporate electronic data requires Storage Area Networks (SANs) to store and retrieve more data at higher speeds. 4-Gb Fibre Channel technology addresses this need and continues to experience steady integration in the video streaming, image processing and backup markets for its ability to deliver rapidly accessible data, faster backups and backward compatibility all at a manageable cost while preserving existing 2-Gb and 1-Gb investments.
"Agilent was the first company to introduce a dual-channel 4 Gb/s Fibre Channel controller and were now introducing our third generation of 4Gb Fibre Channel controllers," said Erik Ottem, marketing director of the I/O Solutions Division in Agilents Semiconductor Products Group. "ATTO Technology has worked very closely with Agilent to design best-of-breed host adapter solutions with the Tachyon family. The Tachyon DX4 allowed ATTO to design a quad-channel, 4-Gigabit PCIe host adapter that delivers breakthrough I/O per second performance and exceptional bandwidth capabilities."
"With our comprehensive Celerity Fibre Channel host adapter product line, based on Agilents family of Tachyon chips, we are uniquely positioned to provide best-of-breed 4-Gigabit host adapter solutions to data-intensive applications such as video streaming, image processing and backup," states Ed Tierney, director of marketing at ATTO Technology.
