ExpressSAS RAID cards
ATTO Technology today announced that internal benchmark testing revealed its ExpressSAS RAID controllers as the industry's highest performance Serial Attached SCSI products for digital video editing, production, and other data-intensive applications. "Internal testing shows that ATTO ExpressSAS controllers demonstrate an increase of 50 to 75 percent faster performance than competitive products in a series of bandwidth-stressing benchmark tests, such as running multiple HD video streams with parity protection on Avid Xpress Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, Autodesk Maya and other digital media workflow environments," the company wrote. ATTO says its device achieved more than 1.5Gbps throughput performance. ExpressSAS RAID controllers are priced from $1,100 for a single unit.
