ATTO Technology has introduced the ATTO Desklink category of products for mobile devices, laptops and ultrabooks. Similar to host bus adapters and bridges, Desklink devices are the latest in ATTO’s portfolio of storage and network connectivity offerings.
This technology allows a variety of portable devices that typically incorporate FireWire and USB connections access to other storage protocols including Fibre Channel, SAS/SATA and Ethernet. The line is being launched with the introduction of ATTO’s new ThunderLink and ThunderStream Desklinks devices.
The ThunderLink family allows Thunderbolt-enabled products to leverage ATTO’s latest technology for access to Fibre Channel and SAS/SATA storage, as well as Ethernet network connectivity previously unavailable for portable devices. The solutions are targeted to environments such as medical imaging and video rendering.
The ThunderStream line further enhances this connectivity and consists of embedded or desktop SAS/SATA RAID Storage Controller products, according to Timothy J. Klein, president and CEO at ATTO Technology. They’re designed to optimize unified storage typically found in the media and entertainment market.
