ATTO will add to Celerity line

ATTO Technology Inc. will extend its Celerity Fibre Channel Host Adapter line with a series of 8-Gigabit single-, dual-, and quad-channel host adapters.

The new adapters will also feature the company’s Advanced Data Streaming Technology that provides controlled acceleration of large and small blocks of data, enabling users to achieve the ultimate in I/O performance. Celerity Fibre Channel will have multiple O/S, port and driver options. This ensures backward compatibility, enabling users to preserve their 4-Gb and 2-Gb Fibre Channel investments. ATTO’s 8-Gb PCI Express 2.0 platform is also backward compatible with existing PCIe bus platforms.

ATTO will begin OEM field trials of the Celerity 8-Gb Fibre Channel host adapters in May. There was no word on availability or pricing.
