ATTO Certifies Magma ExpressBox for ThunderBolt Users

ATTO Technology has a series of certifications for the new Magma ExpressBox 3T-V3. This means that Thunderbolt users can access Fibre Channel, Ethernet, or SAS/SATA based storage, by inserting an ATTO PCIe card into the EB3T-V3. For users on-the-go, this means access to critical data from any Thunderbolt enabled device, even in the field.

Earlier this year, One Stop Systems (OSS) introduced the ExpressBox 3T-V3, an expansion chassis with three full length PCIe slots. The EB3T-V3 is Thunderbolt certified, features plug and play installation and can support combinations of x1, x4, x8 and x16 PCIe cards. The chassis features a hot-swappable cooling fan and users can control fan speed and noise.

OSS has certified their new EB3T-V3 with the following ATTO PCIe products:

  • Celerity Gen 6 32Gb and 16Gb Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs) 
  • ExpressSAS 6Gb SAS/SATA HBAs and RAID adapters
  • FastFrame 40Gb and 10Gb Ethernet network interface cards (NICs)

In addition, OSS has also certified the ATTO ThunderLink Thunderbolt 3 devices as part of a complete Thunderbolt workflow. The complete ATTO ExpressSAS line, including 12Gb SAS/SATA HBAs, will also be interoperable following the forthcoming release of new ATTO Mac drivers.

“Magma ExpressBox 3T-V3 provides a seamless solution for using PCIe cards with Thunderbolt 3 enabled computers,” said Steve Cooper, CEO of OSS. “Many companies have a significant investment in PCIe cards but as the size of computers gets smaller, available expansion slots have been reduced or completely eliminated. The Magma ExpressBox 3T-V3 system provides a migration path to Thunderbolt 3 enabled computers while protecting your investment in PCIe hardware.”

ATTO CEO Tim Klein also weighed in, saying, “We are elated to be working with partners like One Stop Systems. Magma's high performing expansion chassis meets the speed and performance of ATTO products. These products together, offer an outlet to meet and even exceed the connectivity standards necessary for data intensive environments.”
