ATTO Technology (www.attotech.com) has announced the availability of its new Gen 6 Fibre Channel product portfolio. The new Gen 6 line includes CelerityTM 32Gb Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) in low-profile single- and dual-port versions and 16Gb HBAs in low-profile single-, dual- and quad-port versions.
ATTO’s additions to its Fibre Channel portfolio will enable companies to capitalize on their existing SAN infrastructure and address the growing need for high-performing, scalable and secure storage to support exponential data growth from applications such as 4K/8K editing and high-performance computing and data warehousing, along with the proliferation of virtualized servers and flash arrays, says CEOTim Klein. Upgrading an existing Fibre Channel SAN to 32Gb Gen 6 is a logical choice to maximize performance, he adds.
ATTO’s Gen 6 Celerity 32Gb HBAs support 3,200MB/s per channel data throughput, while 16GB HBAs provide 1,600MB/s per-channel speeds. Both versions are backward compatible and take full advantage of advancements for reliability and forward error correction.
Complementing the new HBAs is ATTO’s FibreBridge 7500 and 6500 Storage Controllers and Thunderbolt enabled devices, which connect mobile computer platforms to high-speed networks and storage infrastructures. With the addition of Gen 6 Fibre Channel products, ATTO further extends the industry’s broadest range of storage and network connectivity products, all optimized to work together.
ATTO’s Gen 6 Celerity 32Gb and 16Gb HBAs are available now in limited quantities, with general availability scheduled for spring 2016.
