ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, today announced the first and only Fibre Channel connectivity solution that enables workstations in heterogeneous operating environments to connect directly to enterprise-class storage systems. ATTO’s MultiPath Director™, a high-performance and feature-rich solution that keeps data available in real time for multiple users, is now incorporated into ATTO’s Celerity 8Gb/s Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters. MultiPath Director provides professional communities in media and entertainment, education, government, scientific, and many other growth markets, the option to integrate enterprise-class storage features into workstation applications.
Available with ATTO’s single-, dual- and quad-channel 8Gb/s Fibre Channel HBAs and fully-qualified for use with the ATTO FastStream™ RAID Storage Controller, MultiPath Director addresses workstation-level needs for load-balancing and automatic path failover, features that were previously available only at the server level. MultiPath Director provides multiple redundant paths to enterprise storage for high-performance connectivity, and is qualified with leading enterprise-class storage vendors like IBM, HP, EMC, Dot Hill, NetApp and LaCie. By enabling multiple workstations to connect to high-end Fibre Channel storage, MultiPath Director creates a shared storage environment. It allows users to efficiently collaborate on projects and gain real-time access to content in heterogeneous environments that deploy Windows®, Linux and Mac® servers and workstations.
