ATTO and Viking Announce Certification Partnership
ATTO Technology and Viking Enterprise Solutions have announced a partnership to combine their products. The collaboration will result in a certified, fully integrated and high-performance storage solution that is ideal for content creation and media workflows.
As part of the certification, ATTO Celerity 16Gb and 32Gb host bus adapters (HBAs) will be included in Viking Enterprise Solutions Fx60-HD/HP all-flash storage platforms.
Running an AJA System Test, the Viking Enterprise Solutions Fx60 achieved over 3800MB/s write speed and over 450 MB/s read performance while streaming 4096×3112 at 10bit RGB (Full Aperture 4K) video to an ATTO Celerity 322E (32Gb HBA). While the Celerity 162P (16Gb HBA) results exceeded 2500MB/s writes and 3080MB/s reads, respectively.
Resolution of 4096×3112 Full Aperture 4K requires 1224MB/s to stream at 24fps. Together, with ATTO Celerity HBAs, a Viking Enterprise Solutions Fx60 supports five separate streams of 3840×2160 at 10bit RGB 4K UHD (24fps).
“The Viking Enterprise Fx60 is a powerful storage solution for media professionals working with HD, 2K, 4K and even higher video files,” said Timothy J. Klein, president and CEO, ATTO Technology, “we’re very happy to be working with Viking Enterprise Solutions on this platform.”
“Interoperability with multiple vendor components is a core element of our solution strategy, and the performance results we’re seeing with ATTO is particularly compelling,” said Daniel Liddle, Vice President of Marketing, Viking Enterprise Solutions, Division of Sanmina.
ATTO Celerity HBAs deliver the fastest data throughput (both MB/s and IOPs) available for today’s most demanding storage environments. Celerity features ATTO Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) and ATTO MultiPath Director technologies providing a redundant, high-performance connectivity solution that thrives in data-intensive environments just as the Viking Enterprise Fx60-HD/HP family does.
The Fx60-HD/HP family are all-flash high performance, high density and high-availability storage appliances with integrated software and hardware delivering 5M random 4K IOPs (reads) and throughput of 22GB/s (reads). They support 60 drives in a 2RU rack space for up to 480TB of raw capacity.
