Additionally, the H1208 and H120F HBAs include Power Center Pro, an integrated software RAID solution that brings the performance and protection of RAID to attached storage devices.

Exclusive Advanced Data Streaming (ADS) Technology maximizes CPU processes to deliver smooth and reliable data transfers and the hightest consistent performance. ATTO pays close attention to detail in board design and signal integrity to minimize transmission errors and data corruption. These differentiating capabilities make ATTO the premier choice for high-performance direct-attached SAS/SATA storage connectivity.

Advanced Management Tools

The easy-to-use ATTO ConfigTool features an intuitive GUI that simplifies the installation, management and monitoring of the HBA. With advanced troubleshooting and performance tuning capabilities, ExpressSAS HBAs provide users with sophisticated diagnostics and flexibility to control settings for specific applications.

ATTO offers a board array of management and diagnostic capabilities. Cables, the most significant point of failure, are often difficult to troubleshoot. ExpressSAS 12Gb/s SAS HBAs are able to help isolate cable and connector failures (and intermittent problems) through independent control of each port, as well as discovery and cable management of data passed through the mini-SAS HD connectors.

Applications

The ExpressSAS 12Gb/s SAS/SATA family of host bust adapters offers the fastest available connection to direct-attached SAS or SATA storage.

The impressive speed of the 12Gb/s SAS interface, coupled with a x8 PCI Express 3.0 host interface, delivers a dense and efficient connection to all types of storage - from rack-mounted servers and workstations in data center, data warehousing, VOD and other high-availability, high-performance applications.

Advanced Data Streaming (ADS) latency-management technology controls the acceleration of data transfers to move large amounts of data faster and more efficiently.

Efficiently Share Memory

ATTO 12Gb ExpressSAS host bus adapter (HBA) drivers are optimized to ensure that driver resources are located close to the system I/O. In addition, they support NUMA-aware applications and operating systems. NUMA is a system design that allows multiple processors in the same server to efficiently share memory. This reduces latency and increases I/O performance - especially important for data mining, business analytics and other processor-intensive applications.

Protect data integrity

ATTO ExpressSAS HBAs feature Power Center Pro provides RAID 0, 1, 1e and 10 capabilities for internally-mounted disk drives. This feature is often required for end users often need to add a level of performance or protection to a boot drive group. With Power Center Pro RAID, you can protect a boot group against drive failure, or if you'd like to achieve faster boot times, you can bundle several drives together to improve overall performance. Additionally, Power Center Pro may be used to set up a server storage for general use. These are just a few examples of the many ways to use Power Center Pro to provide a cost-effective option that adds performance and protection to your storage architecture.

Increase your bottom line

ATTO ExpressSAS HBAs consume up to 40% less power than competitive offerings and delivers a significant reduction in data center electric and cooling costs.
