The FibreBridge 7500 16Gb Fibre Channel to 12Gb SAS Storage Controller from ATTO Technology allows the addition of Enterprise Fibre Channel to SAS SSD and HDD storage with all the benefits of capacity aggregation and ATTO acceleration technology. Its intelligent controller architecture provides optimized performance, flexibility of features, and leverages proven software components for storage solutions. A patented Drive Map Director simplifies Fibre Channel LUN installation and reduces maintenance costs for storage.
The FibreBridge 7500, with an advanced architecture, pushes the envelope on performance adding less than 4 microseconds of latency to storage. With a 10 times order of magnitude improvement, the FibreBridge 7500 is primed for use in data center topologies maximizing the number of transactions from up to 240 direct attached SSD and HDD devices to a high performance Fibre Channel SAN. ATTO acceleration technology improves performance of small block transfer sizes with an optimal profile for transactional environments. It has a built-in PCIe analyzer to analyze I/O paths for performance optimization by viewing commands in flight. The ATTO control processing provides intelligence and features that are not found in direct attached technologies to add functionality for improved productivity.
Enterprise-Class Management and Monitoring
The FibreBridge enables you to manage storage infrastructures with features not found in direct connect technologies. ExpressNAV system manager is a remote management interface for configuration, monitoring and management of ATTO storage controllers. Advanced tuning and troubleshooting features include a built-in PCIe analyzer, performance monitoring, diagnostic and troubleshooting capabilities, phone home notification and robust trace and event logging. Several available management interfaces include GUI, CLI, Telnet, SNMP, and FTP.
Data Center Ready
ATTOs storage controller is engineered to lower data center maintenance costs and comply with international regulations while delivering high performance and low latency. FibreBridge save up to 25% in power over using native Fibre Channel components and feature a front to rear cooling flow to integrate with cooling systems that expel heat from the data center.
Industry Leading Support
ATTO has dedicated program management with an escalation process and a guaranteed response time. ATTO also provides regular firmware updates and maintenance programs to keep up with advances in technology.
ATTO acceleration technology maximizes parallel processing of host-to-storage data flow to achieve low latency for transactional workloads and the high throughputs for stream processing. This approach radically improves performance with no features or services in the data path to slow down data transfers. This acceleration technology works in conjunction with the proven, reliable control functions of ATTO's intelligent controller architecture to create a unique controller that increases performance, reduces latency, and lowers data center maintenance costs. The technology eliminates bottlenecks with parallel processing for up to a 10 times performance improvement over standard SAN storage. It also maximizes large block transfer sizes from Fibre Channel to SAS/SATA devices for optimal streaming performance (MB/s).
Storage Controller Features
Performance-critical commands and all reads/writes are accelerated in hardware. End-to-end data protection in acceleration technology and control functions to safeguard data throughout the controller and also enables max login management capabilities. Proven and time-tested Universal Virtual Device Architecture (UVDA) supports protocol conversion between hosts and targets and is designed to move data quickly and efficiently. Virtual Device Manager (VDM) is a proprietary software architecture that assures the smooth flow of data. VDM minimizes overhead by creating a virtual link between initiators and targets on a per-command basis. Platform has common services such as multi-initiator access, reservations and vendor specific SCSI commands that are applied to all attached enclosure and disk devices. Maintains priority for data transfers while providing management of memory and co-operative multitasking capabilities.
Hardware configuration options allow for unique board ID to define initialization and characteristics of the OEM product. It is built on highly reliable architecture with low fallout rate in terms of manufacturing with a negligible field failure rate. OEM configuration files store OEM specific parameters in NVRAM which enable features, product naming and look and feel of the user interface for the OEM product. Product labeling allows OEM logo and naming to appear on the front of the rack mount enclosure and GUI.
Data Routing Fabric Topology
Incorporates advanced ASIC, firmware and interface technologies that enable you to fine tune ATTO controllers for specific applications. ATTO Embedded Operating System (AEOS) provides an integrated, multi-tasking environment that self optimizes to changing I/O patterns for maximum performance while maintaining priority for data transfers. Standard read buffer commands allow the collection of inquiry data, event logs, port statistics, phy statistics, SFP and SAS connector information, trace log, core dump, configuration, and status information. Write buffer commands are also supported to update controller firmware, clear the event log, clear Fibre Channel and SAS port and phy statistics and to also write a message to the event log.
