Novell Names ExpressSAS H30F SAS/SATA
Amherst, N.Y. — Dec. 16
ATTO Technology Inc., a provider of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announced that the ATTO ExpressSAS H30F SAS/SATA II host adapter has received the Novell YES Certified compatibility designation with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, Service Pack 1.
The ExpressSAS H30F host adapter is a 16-port SAS/SATA II host adapter with transfer rates of up to 3 Gigabit per second per port with the ability to connect to both SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) and SATA II (Serial ATA) devices. YES Certified status means the H30F is compatible with Novell products, and that ATTO and Novell will collaborate to support customers’ deployment of the H30F in a Novell environment.
ATTO has added the ExpressSAS H30F certification to its portfolio of Novell-compatible products, including the Celerity FC-42ES Fibre Channel host adapter and the ExpressPCI UL5D and UL5D LP SCSI host adapters.
The ExpressSAS H30F is the latest in a line of SAS/SATA II host and RAID adapters from ATTO.
With 16 ports, each able to deliver up to 300 megabytes per second performance, the H30F utilizes an on-board expander, allowing direct connectivity of up to 16 internal drives and eliminating the need for the enclosure to provide expandability through a mid-plane.
“ATTO and Novell working together are leaders in delivering Linux-based solutions that customers can feel confident in implementing to support their business — from the enterprise to small and medium-size businesses,” said Tim Klein, president and CEO of ATTO. “We are very pleased with the value we are able to provide our customers by leveraging our partnership with Novell and the SUSE Linux Enterprise.”
