Faster Than Fibre Channel
FastFrame NT 10GBASE-T NICs offer speeds 47% faster than Fibre Channel with the structured wiring and patch panels familiar to networking professionals. Cards, ports & cabling are backwards compatible to GigE- and you can run 10Gb Ethernet over Cat 6A cabling that's already in place. FastFrame 10GBASE-T NICs provide high performance connectivity without the cost and compatibility concerns of proprietary optics and twin-ax direct connect cables.
Lossless Ethernet (CEE) and Data Center Bridging (DCB) support provides improved iSCSI quality of service, for reliable access to storage. This enhanced iSCSI support makes FastFrame the ideal solution for customers who have:
- Wiring closet/small data center installations where the customer either lacks Fibre Channel experience, or simply prefers to use Ethernet to access storage.
- An existing NAS-dominated network, and want to add network access to block data.
- Remote offices, to support IP routing over longer distances and ease installation and management for local IT admins.
30% Less Power
ATTO FastFrame 10GBASE-T NICs are built on latest-generation industry-leading Intel silicon for ubiquitous usability, and consume up to 30% less power than competitive 10GBASE-T NICs. A lower power rating means lower energy costs, lower data center maintenance fees, and less heat to dissipate.
Diverse OS Support
In addition to broad support for Windows and Linux server and desktop operating systems, ATTO is a leader in high performance I/O connectivity for Mac OS X environments. ATTO also offers Xtend SAN, an iSCSI initiator for OSX, for a complete solution.
