ATTO and Medéa Deliver 4-Gigabit FC Storage SolutionCelerity FC-42XS Fibre Channel host adapter will be integrated into StreamRAID 15 (October 20, 2005)
ATTO Technology, Inc., a worldwide manufacturer of Fibre Channel, IP and SCSI storage-infrastructure solutions, announced today that its Celerity FC-42XS, a high-performance 4-Gb Fibre Channel storage system, will be integrated into Medéa Corporation’s StreamRAID 15 storage system. This creates an intelligent, 4-Gb 800MB/sec., integrated disk storage solution positioned for the most demanding video and broadcast market applications.
The Celerity FC-42XS is a 4-Gb dual-channel Fibre Channel host 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 ATTO’s unique Advanced Data Streaming (ADS) Technology, Celerity FC-42XS enables StreamRaid 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.
Medéa has realized substantial performance gains by incorporating the ATTO Celerity FC-42XS host adapter as part of the StreamRAID 15. The StreamRAID 15 offers performance up to 800 MB/sec. and protection for broadcast and post-production applications requiring the highest degree of uptime while sustaining two streams of uncompressed 10-bit high definition video content with effects.
“By bundling the ATTO Celerity 4-Gb host adapter with the StreamRAID 4-Gb SAN solution, users will get enhanced data throughput and a very friendly user interface, which is critical for high bandwidth environments," notes Sherri Robinson, director of Markets for ATTO. "Being the first to market with the 4-Gb Celerity FC-42XS Fibre Channel host adapter allowed Medéa to bring a fail safe 4-Gb solution to the broadcast market.”
"StreamRAID delivers an affordable, highly available high definition storage solution for the OEM market," said Satish Trikha, Medéa's VP World-Wide OEM Sales and Business Development. “The ATTO Celerity 4-Gb host adapters have allowed us to offer our customers increased throughput with a familiar and easy-to-use interface.”
ATTO Technology will continue to accelerate its role as an industry leader in storage infrastructure solutions with the extension of the Celerity architecture with 4Gb and 10Gb Fibre Channel products in the near future.
