ATTO : Industry's Only Complete Line of 12Gb SAS HBAs

Announcing Industry's Only Complete Line of 12Gb SAS HBAs


We are pleased to announce, the introduction of ATTO’s ExpressSAS 12Gb SAS HBA product line.

These adapters offer many 'firsts' and innovative features, including:

  • Double the performance of previous technologies, but also fully compatible with earlier PCIe and SAS/SATA infrastructure. Benchmarked performance of over 1 million IO/sec!
  • Pre-qualified solutions - more than 200 qualificationswith over 20 partners (and increasing daily!) completed already with hard disks, SSDs, servers, storage and other infrastructure.
  • True native 16-port connectivity - no power-hungry, speed killing switches or expanders.
  • Support for up to 2048 end devices - double the number of competitive HBAs.
  • Enhanced performance and data protection with Power Center Pro RAID 0, 1, 1e and 10 (late May)
  • The only 12Gb HBA with 16 internal ports for high-density server applications.
  • Enterprise-ready driver support - Windows, Linux and VMware (late May)


ExpressSAS 12Gb SAS/SATA to PCIe 3.0 host adapters offer storage connectivity with the highest data transfer rates for big data, financial, geologic survey and other latency-sensitive applications. These HBAs include built-in RAID and Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) for smooth data transfers, consistent performance and uninterrupted work flows. Application environments particularly well-suited to these products include:

  • Enterprise Data Center:Dense, rack mount storage requires maximizing CPU performance. Our 12Gb SAS HBAs deliver double the performance of current direct attached storage solutions, ensuring that both storage and server resources are fully capitalized. Additionally, they use highly efficient IO controllers that move more data with less power - reducing power consumption and carbon footprint.
  • Business Analytics and Big Data:Scalable server nodes depend on direct connect storage for low latency response time and overall high performance. ExpressSAS 12Gb HBAs provide up to 16 independent ports per adapter for high density and support for redundant connections to storage in switched and switchless configurations. Mixed media environments (HDD, solid state storage and tape archive) are fully supported. In fact, 12Gb SAS HBAs allow analytics applications to take advantage of the unique capabilities of SSD caching and storage devices. Enhanced cable management also eliminates the support concerns that would make other storage technologies unsupportable in business intelligence environments..
  • Video-on-Demand and Broadcast:12Gb SAS gives the greatest number of video streams in environments where streams per server node is the benchmark standard – almost twice as many as the closest competitor. Additionally, 12Gb SAS is future-proof and can support even the latest 4K UltraHD video format.
  • Financial Trading Systems:Real-time quotes, high-frequency trading (HFT) and advanced analytics require low latency and fast data access to get a leg up on the competition. Only 12Gb SAS technology offers the storage connectivity needed to support these intense I/O environments. In a business where a fraction of a second can mean the difference between profit and loss, ExpressSAS 12Gb HBA solutions provide an edge.
