ATTO Technology (, a provider of storage
connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive
computing environments, and Maxx Digital
(, a storage solutions provider for
high-performance digital media markets, have announced that the ATTO
ExpressSAS R380 SAS/SATA RAID Adapter is exclusively being used as
part of Maxx Digital’s Final Share Storage System to provide a
high-bandwidth, RAID-protected, shared storage solution for Final Cut
Pro users.

The ExpressSAS R380, a 3Gb/s SAS/SATA x8 PCIe adapter, as part of the
Final Share storage solution, provides an Ethernet-based SAN that
allows video professionals to work with uncompressed SD, ProRes422HQ
and DVCProHD on Macs. This low cost storage solution offers
integration and setup with minimal ongoing management or
administration and incorporates the ATTO R380 for high-performance
connectivity and RAID protection, according to Tim Klein, president
and CEO of ATTO Technology.

The Final Share solution also provides 802.3ad link aggregation, and
full AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) support, all while maintaining the
simplicity of traditional LAN switching, he adds. ATTO will feature a
live demonstration of this high-performance RAID storage solution at
HD World, Oct 14-15 in New York City, booth 1343. They will also
have the demonstration on the West Coast with Maxx Digital
