Building on the success of its Fibre Channel to SAS/SATA storage controller products, ATTO Technology Inc., a provider of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announced a new addition to its FastStream storage controller line. The FastStream SC 8200 is a storage controller that provides 6 Gigabit SAS host connectivity and 3 Gigabit SAS/SATA drive connectivity with RAID protection and storage management features to address performance intensive, price sensitive environments. The FastStream SC 8200 is provided in two versions: an external rackmount/desktop appliance and an embeddable RAID controller targeted at OEMs and systems integrators.
“ATTO has provided channel and OEM solutions for the digital video and audio markets for over 21 years,” said Tom Kolniak, director of products for ATTO Technology. “An important aspect to our success is latency management; by understanding the data flow path from the host to storage, ATTO is able to provide the highest performing solutions for streaming applications. The FastStream SC 8200 Storage Controller is a good example of ATTO’s ability to address market needs providing solid, affordable solutions for customers looking to improve workflow performance and add RAID protection in a collaborative environment.”
The FastStream product line provides 4KB sector size support to address partitions larger than 2TB; media error handling, which aims to minimize workflow interruptions caused by imperfect media; SES management and monitoring; and non-block device pass-through, which allows users to connect devices such as tape and optical drives alongside their disk storage. Firmware updates are always free.
