ATTO Has Connectivity Solutions and 8K Editing Workflow

Network and storage connectivity developer ATTO Technology has a number of new products on show including Thunderbolt 3 to 25Gb Ethernet adapters.

“The new products we’re showing at NAB this year are the result of ATTO serving the media and entertainment market for over three decades and the insight that experience has given us. These products are purpose-made for the industry and should be on the radar of every production house,” said Tom Kolniak, senior director of marketing at ATTO.

One new product being shown at NAB are ATTO XstreamCORE ET 8200 accelerated protocol converters. XstreamCORE ET 8200 is a 1U storage controller that connects any external SAS device, such as a JBOD of HDDs or SSDs, a RAID array or external tape devices, and presents them on an Ethernet SAN fabric. You can connect up to 16 SAS LTO-6, 7 or 8 tape drives to up to 64 hosts using hardware accelerated iSCSI and iSCSI over RDMA (iSER).

Another new product are ATTO ThunderLink NS 3252 Thunderbolt 3 to 25Gb Ethernet adapters intended for scalable connectivity in high-bandwidth content creation environments, ThunderLink 25GbE adapters offer driver support for Windows 10 and macOS. It’s a single connectivity solution for users with heterogeneous operating system environments.

This is demoed on the ATTO stand as well as an 8K editing workflow featuring ATTO Celerity 32Gb Fibre Channel HBAs and ATTO FastFrame 40Gb NICs with ThunderLink powering Avid NEXIS connectivity.

ATTO is also unveiling macOS driver support for its latest generation Ethernet products, FastFrame 3 10/25/40/50/100GbE network adapters. This is the industry’s first macOS driver to support the latest 25/50/100GbE standard.
