Facilis Technology

TerraBlock 3.0 to Incorporate ATTO Xtend SAN to Support Mac OS X iSCSI Users

Amherst, NY (December 19, 2007) — ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader
of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive
computing environments, today announced Facilis Technology, Inc. has
entered into an agreement to integrate the ATTO Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator
for Mac OS X into Facilis Technology’s TerraBlock 3.0 shared storage
environment. By using Xtend SAN, OS X users will be able to connect to
TerraBlock’s iSCSI Server Module utilizing the standard Gigabit Ethernet
port on their OS X workstations.

ATTO and Facilis are building upon their partnership in bringing innovative
shared storage solutions to the market with this integration. Facilis
Technology, a leader in shared media storage technology for post-production
and content creation, offers the industry’s highest performance virtual
volume SAN with TerraBlock 3.0. ATTO’s Xtend SAN software allows Mac users
to experience the benefits of the TerraBlock SAN through iSCSI, one of the
fastest growing storage networking protocols today. With iSCSI, users can
take advantage of existing Ethernet expertise and equipment to access
volumes previously available only through Fibre Channel connectivity.

“As a response to customer and reseller requests, Facilis Technology is now
offering iSCSI connectivity for remote workstations, lower bandwidth or
laptop clients,” explained James McKenna, vice president, Facilis
Technology. “By partnering with ATTO for this technology, we are able to
offer TerraBlock Mac OS X users a reliable, time-tested iSCSI solution.

ATTO’s industry-leading experience with the iSCSI protocol in the Mac
market made them the ideal partner.”

This new approach to Ethernet connectivity comes at a time when more and
more facilities are transitioning to more inclusive workflows with
graphics, audio and editorial. Faster 4-Gb Fibre Channel connectivity with
optional iSCSI connectivity establishes workgroups without limitations on
workstation compatibility or location. This approach enables the highest
level of collaboration, regardless of the chosen creative tools.

“Facilis Technology’s selection of the ATTO Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator
demonstrates its commitment to the Mac market, as Xtend SAN provides Mac OS
X users with the option of connecting to the TerraBlock iSCSI module,”
stated Ed Tierney, director of marketing of ATTO Technology, Inc. “ATTO has
been providing industry-leading support for iSCSI in both hardware and
software for more than five years. Facilis’ selection of Xtend SAN as its
iSCSI initiator for Mac environments reinforces ATTO’s position as a
premier provider of iSCSI solutions for Mac OS X users.”
