ATTO and Facilis Team On 4-Gigabit Storage Solution

Companies provide high-bandwidth storage solutions to the HDTV marketplace (December 09, 2004)

ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announced today, that it has entered into an OEM agreement with Facilis for 4-Gigabit ATTO Celerity storage adapters. Through the terms of the agreement, ATTO is supplying the Celerity FC-42XS storage adapter, which is being bundled with Facilis new TerraBlock Shared Storage System targeted for the emerging high-definition television (HDTV) markets.

The Celerity FC-42XS is a 4-Gigabit dual-channel Fibre Channel storage adapter offering up to 800 MB/sec. performance, per channel, in full-duplex mode. With the highest available Fibre Channel throughput, and backward compatibility, Celerity FC-42XS supports the most intensive data applications, including digital content creation, tape streaming and backup, rich content delivery and complex databases.

With ATTOs unique Advanced Data Streaming (ADS) Technology, Celerity FC-42XS enables TerraBlock users to achieve the ultimate in I/O performance. With a combination of features that provides controlled acceleration of large and small blocks of data, ADS provides faster, smoother and more efficient transfer of data for streaming applications.

Facilis has realized substantial performance gains by incorporating the ATTO Celerity FC-42XS storage adapter as part of the TerraBlock SAN solution. TerraBlock is unlike any Storage Area Network (SAN) solution available, and the first affordable SAN to offer a "Server-Direct" architecture that employs the best attributes of SAN and NAS to create a simple, high-performance system that is easy to configure, and reliable.

?By bundling the ATTO Celerity 4-Gigabit storage adapter with the Facilis TerraBlock SAN solution, users will not only get a more user-friendly interface, but also enhanced data throughput, which is critical for digital content creation environments," notes Sherri Robinson, director of Markets for ATTO. "Being the first to market with the 4-Gigabit Celerity FC-42XS Fibre Channel storage adapter allowed Facilis to bring a 4-Gigabit solution to the HDTV market.

?Our partnership with ATTO has enabled the TerraBlock solution to reach the lofty performance level required by HDTV applications, adds James McKenna VP of Sales and Marketing for Facilis. ?The ATTO Celerity 4-Gigabit storage adapters have allowed us to offer our customers increased throughput with a familiar and easy to use interface.
