ATTO’s XstreamCORE ET 8200 SAS To Ethernet Protocol Converter Adopted By Spectra Logic

ATTO has announced that its XstreamCORE ET 8200 has been adopted by Spectra Logic as a key component to their Spectra Swarm solution. Spectra Swarm adds Ethernet connectivity to Spectra LTO tape libraries. 

While Fiber Channel continues to be available across all Spectra tape libraries, the new enhancement helps end users simplify their workflows. Spectra Swarm makes tape connectivity easier and adds a modern interface to Spectra’s LTO tape libraries by leveraging all of the same infrastructure and networking capabilities as the rest of the equipment in a modern data center. Spectra Swarm is tested and qualified to work with Spectra LTO tape libraries — Spectra Stack through Spectra T950.

ATTO XstreamCORE ET 8200 is an accelerated hardware protocol converter that connects Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) LTO tape drives to Ethernet networks via iSCSI or iSER protocols. It’s a cost-effective way to remotely connect SAS tape devices to Ethernet fabrics and includes advanced monitoring and management tools.

With ATTO xCORE hardware acceleration and ATTO SpeedWrite technologies, XstreamCORE ET 8200 facilitates tape writes that are 20 percent faster than direct-attached SAS, allowing data backups at up to 4800 MB/s using iSER and 2500 MB/s using iSCSI to 16 tape drives.
