(Las Vegas NAB, Nevada--April 15, 2008) ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments announces that SAN Solutions, best-of-breed network storage integrator, will be demonstrating the ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel Host Adapter multipathing driver with enterprise class storage at NAB this week.

ATTO, a long time developer of storage solutions for the Apple market, has created a specialized Fibre Channel solution that allows the creation of multiple paths to high-end modular storage systems. These paths ensure continuous data protection in a solution that is robust enough to support the throughput demands of high-end video applications. It’s also scalable across multiple workstations and Enterprise Class Storage Systems in a Fibre Channel SAN.

The ATTO Celerity 4-Gb Fibre Channel Host Adapter provides connectivity to many high-availability storage systems through a Fibre Channel switch. A custom driver, developed by ATTO for Celerity Fibre Channel host adapters, allows the Mac OS X Operating System high-availability connections to most of today’s enterprise class storage systems. This ensures maximum bandwidth to each controller. ATTO’s years of digital media industry experience with high-bandwidth environments ensures that Celerity host adapters are tuned for optimal performance.

“ATTO is pleased to be a part of SAN Solutions’ Media Transformation and Content Delivery workflow demonstrations at NAB,” states Ed Tierney, director of marketing for ATTO. “ATTO has been providing technology leading connectivity solutions for the media and entertainment solutions markets for two decades. Our involvement with SAN Solutions’ industry-leading storage technology provides us with an opportunity to demonstrate how our storage infrastructure solutions simplify and improve digital media workflow.”
