FastFrame Delivers Unified SAN and LAN Connectivity
ATTO Technology, a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, today introduced the ATTO FastFrame 10 Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapters, the latest in its expansive portfolio of high-performance connectivity products. The FastFrame NS11 (single port) and FastFrame NS12 (dual port) leverage the Intel Ethernet 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller to meet the bandwidth-intensive demands of high-performance, unified storage environments in performance IT and media and entertainment markets.
ATTO’s FastFrame family of 10GbE Network Adapters reduce a data center’s total cost of ownership by providing flexible and scalable unified SAN and LAN storage connectivity. With support for iSCSI remote boot, Data Center Bridging and load-balancing on multiple CPUs, the FastFrame NS11 and NS12 increase system performance by balancing network loads and reducing latency, while eliminating redundant network infrastructure components and lowering administration costs. The FastFrame NS11 and NS12 feature a high-performance x8 PCIe 2.0 bus and deliver up to 10Gb/s throughput per port, making them an ideal solution for high-bandwidth data transfers, such as clustered computing, IP content delivery, medical imaging, and video rendering.
“We are pleased to announce the release of our FastFrame 10GbE network adapter product line to meet the high performance demands of today’s data center,” states Tim Klein, president and CEO of ATTO Technology. “By working with an industry-leader in 10 Gigabit Ethernet technology, we are now delivering the most comprehensive storage connectivity solutions based on high-performance technologies.”
ATTO’s FastFrame family of 10GbE network adapters are the first offerings in what will be an expanding FastFrame product family. The FastFrame NS11 and NS12 will be followed by ATTO’s FastFrame Converged Network Adapters, featuring ATTO’s time-tested Fibre Channel driver technology, in Q4, 2010.
“Intel’s 10GbE technology helps address the storage connectivity industry’s demand for a solution that provides flexible and scalable Ethernet adapters for routing both LAN and SAN traffic over a single fabric,” said Steve Schultz, director of product marketing, LAN Access Division, Intel Corporation. “With the Intel 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller in network adapters such as the FastFrame product line, storage connectivity companies such as ATTO are well-positioned to handle the bandwidth-intensive demands of multi-core processing applications.”
