ATTO Introduces Quad-Port Version of 32Gb Fibre Channel HBA

ATTO Technology has announced the availability of its new quad-port ATTO Celerity 32Gb Gen 6 FC-324E host bus adapters (HBAs).

The ATTO Fibre Channel portfolio will enable users to capitalize on their existing storage area network (SAN) infrastructure and addresses 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.

ATTO’s 32Gb HBAs support 3,200MB/s per channel data throughput, maximizing the number of virtual machines per physical server and delivering unmatched storage performance. With x16 PCIe bus connection and four 32Gb/s Fibre Channel ports, the FC-324E eliminates the bottlenecks created by I/O data intensive applications.

With data centres moving to all-flash arrays, the need to drive greater performance to more solid-state drives (SSDs) is becoming critical. Four Fibre Channel ports in a single PCIe slot ensures high-density connectivity at the highest available performance for up to 1.2 GB/s throughput making it ideally suited for environments utilizing next-generation, flash-based storage.

Celerity 32Gb HBAs also make it possible to have longer distances between servers and storage. They support more data in-flight, allowing users to extend their connection to storage up to 6.2 miles, without degrading throughput for demanding long-distance applications such as a stretch cluster.

The ATTO Gen 6 line includes Celerity 32Gb and 16Gb HBAs in low-profile single-, dual- and now quad-port full height versions. All versions are backward compatible, reducing the complexity of deploying and managing the SAN, and take full advantage of advancements for reliability and forward error correction to improve network performance and resiliency.
