AMHERST, N.Y. -- ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, today announced general availability of its ExpressSAS R348 and R380 RAID adapters. As part of the product rollout, the company also unveiled its SAS Advantage channel program, developed to offer VARs and integrators increased revenue opportunities in selling into SAS-based digital video and high-throughput IT environments. For those VARs targeting organizations with bottleneck problems in video, backup and other content rich applications on servers and storage, ExpressSAS will bring new levels of performance with ATTO Technology's most powerful and flexible line of RAID adapters.

Serial Attached SCSI is the next generation SCSI interface, delivering significant improvements in scalability, performance, reliability, and flexibility over parallel SCSI by leveraging a serial architecture for data transport to satisfy the requirements for a broad range of corporate IT and digital media applications. According to International Data Corp., the market will transition rapidly from parallel SCSI to Serial SCSI over the next year when SAS is projected to account for one-third of the storage connectivity market, compared to 25 percent for Fibre Channel. "SAS is gaining momentum and should give Fibre Channel a run for its money," says Dave Reinsel, director of storage research at IDC.

These new RAID adapters leverage the power of ATTO's customer-proven high-performance RAID technology - including the company's proprietary Advanced Data Streaming (ADST) Technology that alleviates data transfer bottlenecks -- and Intel's new PCIe IntelR IOP348 I/O Processors with integrated high-performance XScaleR technology to meet the most demanding performance requirements of data-intensive applications, including transactional databases, email servers, large server farms and digital media.
