Xtend SAN, iPBridge revamp

ATTO Technology today unveiled new versions of its Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator software for Mac OS X and iPBridge hardware. ATTO Xtend SAN software allows Mac OS X users to use iSCSI with existing technology, negating the need for expensive Fibre Channel equipment. The iPBridge device allows Mac users to easily incorporate iSCSI and Fibre Channel storage -- including existing Apple XServe RAID storage -- into an existing network. A new "one-click" setup for iPBridges allows users to initially configure any storage connected to the iPBridge to maximize application needs, according to ATTO, including both IT and digital audio/video environments. The latest release of Xtend SAN provides an updated GUI that is easier to use. The company's iSCSI iPBridges are priced between $800 and $5,000, while Xtend SAN software is available for $200.

ATTO's iPBridge attaches existing SCSI storage to iSCSI SANs (Storage Area Networks) over Gigabit Ethernet, and allow Mac users to interconnect Fibre Channel with iSCSI SANs. The bridges utilize existing IP technology and equipment with iSCSI and feature ExpressNAV management software with an easy-to-use browser-based graphical interface for remote configuration. The device also supports Ultra 320 as well as 4Gbps Fibre Channel storage, according to the company.
