ATTO: New FibreBridge 7500 Storage Controller

Atto Technology Inc. announced its FibreBridge 7500 storage controller is available.



The FibreBridge 7500 storage controller is an accelerated platform that allows to build your own flash, hybrid or capacity storage using standard SAS SSD flash or HDDs and direct attached JBOD storage enclosures. By adding enterprise FC SAN connectivity to low-cost SAS JBOD storage, the 7500 enables applications such as shared storage and multi-site stretch clustering. Atto's acceleration architecture has dedicated memory modules and data paths so commands won't have to compete for shared system resources allowing more data transfers at faster transfer rates. As showcased at VMworld 2014, the FibreBridge 7500 addresses storage and latency requirements for architecting private cloud and DR solutions with a low TCO.

The 7500 serves as the key building block in a modular solution that forms an platform for building out a virtualized, software- defined data center and is highlighted by the following performance benefits:

- Less than 4 microseconds of latency for transfers between storage and server platforms.

- Allows data mobility and redundancy via multisite cluster installations up to hundreds of kilometers apart.

- Enables users to manage storage infrastructures with features not found in direct connect technologies with advanced read ahead and write cache algorithms, robust error processing and email notification of errors and persistent error and trace logs for troubleshooting in the field to minimize downtime.

- Up to 735,000 4K IO/s, 1,000,000 512b IO/s.

The FibreBridge family enables users to manage storage infrastructures with features not found in direct connect technologies. Atto's 7500 leverages the highly reliable and proven technology introduced by the FibreBridge 6500 that storage companies have installed in thousands of data centers worldwide. Both products feature Atto's Drive Map Director technology which reduces operating expenses by eliminating manual mapping of LUNs and the need to remap LUNs if a drive shelf is removed for maintenance or failure. The 6500 which also adds integration of SAS/SATA tape storage into a FC SAN, features Atto's Virtual Device Response (VDR) technology which enables devices to queue and execute commands on behalf of busy or unresponsive tape storage, reducing the number of failed or incomplete backups.
