ATTO Technology (http://www.attotech.com) says it’s readied driver support for its 8Gb/s and 4Gb/s Celerity Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs), 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s ExpressSAS/SATA HBAs and RAID Adapters, as well as its Ultra 320 ExpressPCI SCSI line of HBAs, for Mac OS X Lion. A
“The availability of these drivers reinforces ATTO’s commitment to the Apple market by delivering support for the newest developer’s preview of Apple’s operating system, OS X Lion,” says said Wayne Arvidson, vice president of marketing at ATTO. “Mac users can now choose from a full spectrum of high-performance adapters for SCSI, Fibre Channel and SAS environment.”
ATTO offers several productivity and performance-enhancing solutions for the Apple market also supporting the developer’s preview of Lion. Xtend SAN software allows Mac users to garner the benefits of Internet SCSI (iSCSI), one of the fastest growing storage networking protocols today, Arvidson says.
With iSCSI, users can take advantage of existing Ethernet expertise and equipment to benefit from a Storage Area Network (SAN). By installing the Xtend SAN iSCSI initiator on a Mac workstation, users can leverage key SAN applications such as collaborative digital video/audio workflows, laptop connectivity to SANs, and remote backups. In addition, ATTO offers Power Center software, a disk storage RAID application that allows users to maximize attached storage when using ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel, ExpressSAS/SATA and ExpressPCI SCSI HBAs and RAID Adapters.
