ATTO Technology, Inc. introduce the
, a solid state, rack-mounted controller that attaches to direct attached JBOD, JBOF and RAID storage and shares data to multiple host servers or workstations at up to 2.4 million 4K IO/s and 12.8GB/s throughput in highly available configurations.
It is for converting DAS to shared storage for virtualization use cases. It also adds the ability to virtualize storage from different manufacturers to enable high-speed data mover functions between storage devices. The storage controllers allow users to build performance, low-latency shared flash storage aggregating up to 960 SSDs over four racks of storage.
"ATTO's XstreamCORE FC 7550 doubles the performance of the XstreamCORE FC 7500 model. Built for clustered storage, the XstreamCORE FC 7550 enables connections to many servers or workstations without the need of a FC switch," says James U'Ren, product manager. "ATTO's XstreamCORE storage controllers are targeted at storage and server manufacturers who are looking to build solutions with cutting-edge technology and leading performance. ATTO works with our OEM partners to integrate our products into their solutions while taking advantage of our engineering and customer-facing application expertise to swiftly add XstreamCORE technology to their solutions."
XstreamCORE allows multiple servers running software defined storage to share off the shelf storage at high speed while adding features that accelerate and offload data transfers from host server.
The storage controllers feature xCORE Data Acceleration technology which speeds all reads and writes through hardware acceleration, adding less than 4µs of latency, while all non-data commands are processed internally with company's eCORE Control Engine. XstreamCORE has added intellectual property including data mover, LUN masking, host mapping, performance monitoring, diagnostic and troubleshooting features on a programmable field programmable gate array (FPGA) platform.
XstreamCORE FC 7550 models are available for free evaluation or purchase in a 1U 19" rackmount form factor with four 16Gb FC ports and four independent 12Gb (x4) SAS connections. Embedded board options are also available.
The company works with several tiers of manufacturers to integrate our product portfolio into their solutions with integration and field support of solutions. The firm has the ability to offload features and services from solutions to move data faster with minimal latency while providing value added features.
ATTO XstreamCORE Storage Controllers can be tuned for various applications that require common features and services for storage.
