Emulex, a network monitoring and management company based in Costa Mesa, Calif., said products by ATTO Technology Inc., a producer of storage and network connectivity solutions in Amherst, N.Y., have been certified as being compatible with Emulex’s LightPulse Gen 5 Fibre Channel host bus adapters.
The ATTO products certified compatible with Emulex’s Gen 5 Fibre Channel host bus adapters are the 16Gb Fibre Channel to SAS/SATA FastStream SC 9000 RAID storage controller, the FibreConnect 1600 Fibre Channel switches and the FibreBridge 6500 Fibre Channel to SAS/SATA bridge, according to the companies.
The technology-based partnership between ATTO and Emulex ensures the strength of an end-to-end Fibre Channel solution, according to Wayne Arvidson, ATTO’s vice president of marketing.
