ATTO FastStream SC 8500

Storage tech builder ATTO has announced a preview demonstration of the FastStream SC 8500, a new RAID controller, for this week's Macworld Expo. The 8500 is meant for high-end storage functions such as video editing, and can handle as many as five uncompressed HD streams simultaneously. It includes four 8Gb Fibre Channel host interfaces, and can connect up to 128 3Gb SAS or SATA drives, or else eight to 16 JBOD enclosures.

The controller is also claimed to have "advanced" load balancing, and support many different RAID schemes, going beyond 0 and 1 to include 4, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60 options. Maximum throughput is 1,400MBps. A web-based tool called ExpressNAV is used to help configure and maintain storage architectures. No prices or release dates have been published, but ATTO is inviting people to visit its Macworld booth, 1543.
