ATTO Technology Delivers Blazing-Fast Transfer Rates for Apple’s Mac® on Intel Platform


Industry’s First SCSI, Fibre Channel, and SAS Host and RAID Adapters to Support Mac on Intel Platform

Amherst, NY (August 8, 2006) – ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announces support for the Apple Macintosh® next generation Intel Server architecture for its complete line of SCSI, Fibre Channel and SAS Host and RAID adapters. ATTO ExpressPCI SCSI adapters, Celerity Fibre Channel adapters , and ExpressSAS RAID adapters are the only PCI Express (PCIe) adapters available today that support Mac OS X on the Intel platform. As members of the Intel Storage Community and Managed Developers Program, ATTO worked closely with Intel to design our host adapters to take advantage of the innovative performance of the 64-bit dual-core Intel® Xeon® Processor and achieve immediate market delivery.

“As we have always done in the Apple market, ATTO has taken the lead and is the only vendor to deliver multi-protocol support for Apple’s Mac on Intel Platform . Apple customers can now choose from a full spectrum of high performance adapters for SCSI, Fibre Channel or SAS environments,” states Ed Tierney, director of marketing for ATTO.

ATTO’s ExpressPCI UL5D is a dual-channel host adapter that combines four lane PCI Express technology and Ultra320 speeds for high-performance environments and applications such as high definition video, special effects rendering and non-linear editing.
Moving data at express speeds without bottlenecks is ensured with the ATTO Celerity single, dual and quad channel host adapters. The combination of PCI-Express and 4-Gigabit Fibre Channel technologies enables applications such as high definition video editing, 2K digital production and transactional environments such as databases to take advantage of the 800 MB/sec. per channel throughput performance. Featuring ATTO’s exclusive ADS TM Technology, large blocks of data move faster and more efficiently on the PCI bus than any other host adapter on the market.

ATTO Technology’s line of SAS/SATA RAID adapters incorporates two next generation technologies; Serial Attached SCSI and PCI Express. Delivering blazing-fast transfer rates of up to 2.4GB/sec., the ATTO ExpressSAS RAID adapter is the first product in a new line of RAID adapters. ATTO’s exclusive DVRAID, is capable of handling the most demanding applications such as 2K and 4K film, multiple layers of complex, uncompressed real-time effects, and high definition video editing while adding parity data protection to SAS/SATA storage devices.

“ATTO’s complete line of SCSI, Fibre Channel and SAS adapters will ensure the throughput required for handling massive media files without bottlenecks. ATTO Technology will continue to set the standard for high-performance adapters and will continue to deliver industry-leading Macintosh solutions that meet our customers’ performance expectations and aggressive time-to-market requirements,” states Ed Tierney, director of marketing for ATTO.
