ATTO Technology FCBR-6500-DPS overview

  • 1Description

The Dual Power Supply FibreBridge 6500 2-Port FC to SAS/SATA Controller from ATTO Technology is a performance tuned, manageable protocol translator which allows FC initiators to communicate with SAS/SATA target devices. The FiberBridge 6500 allows your SAS/SATA disk storage to integrate into a Fiber Channel SAN. This provides the benefit of increased availability and scalability, while allowing the use of direct attached storage on a shared Fiber Channel network.

The FiberBridge 6500 allows you to connect SAS or SATA drive technology to your existing 2/4/8 Gb Fiber Channel SAN. By eliminating the fiber components in a drive chassis, power consumption is reduced along with costly fiber components such as SFPs and the quantity of switch ports required by storage.

Optimal Performance Architecture
The architecture provides optimal performance by leveraging the hardware technology combined with ATTO's intelligent bridging architecture and provides industry standard performance with value added features.
More than a Bridge
The FibreBridge enables users to manage storage infrastructures with features not found in direct connect technologies. The read ahead and write cache algorithms in the FibreBridge give users optimal performance. Its error processing enables the FibreBridge to manage disk and communication errors between targets and initiators. Email notification of errors and persistent error and trace logs assist troubleshooting in the field to minimize downtime.
User-Friendly Management Tools
ExpressNAV System Manager is a remote management user interface for configuration, monitoring, and management of ATTO Bridge products. The tuning features include performance monitoring, diagnostic, troubleshooting capabilities, and phone home email notification. Several management interfaces are available including GUI, CLI, Telnet, SNMP, and FTP. Also manage your storage infrastructure with streamline storage management.
SAS/SATA Storage on the SAN
The storage controller provides low cost per drive for Fibre Channel connectivity to SAS/SATA HDD, SSD based storage and SAS tape devices. Adding Fibre Channel connectivity to your SAS/SATA devices provides storage benefits of a SAN that a SAS/SATA storage cannot natively provide. ATTO provides regular firmware updates and maintenance programs to keep the FibreBridge up to date with advances in technology.

Bridging Features

The core control logic driving ATTO Bridge products is optimized to maintain priority for data transfers while providing memory management and cooperative multi-tasking
Patented Drive Map Director provides consistent drive, shelf, and rack LUN mapping
Universal Virtual Device Architecture (UVDA) product which supports protocol conversion between hosts and targets and designed to move data quickly and efficiently
Virtual Device Manager (VDM) is a proprietary software architecture that assures smooth flow of data and it also minimizes overhead by creating a virtual link between initiators and targets on a per-command basis
The Data Routing Fabric topology incorporates advanced ASIC, firmware, and interface technologies that enable users to configure bridges to specific operating environments
Virtual Drive Response (VDR) improves reliability by reducing failed or incomplete backups (2H 2011)
Error Correcting Code (ECC) cache memory
Max login management capability

OEM Customization

Hardware configuration options allow for unique board ID to define initialization and characteristics of the OEM product
Bridge configuration able to accommodate features which interact with custom software packages to enhance the bridging hardware
OEM configuration files stores OEM specific parameters in NVRAM which enable features like product name and look and feel of the user interface for the OEM product
Product labeling will allow the OEM logo and name to appear on the front of the rack mount enclosure
