Charismac Qualifies ATTO iSCSI Initiator Technology with FibreShare V2.x

Auburn, CA (April 27, 2006) - Charismac Engineering Inc. announced support for ATTO Technology’s iSCSI Initiator Technology in FibreShare V2.x today. FibreShare V 2.x is Charismac’s reliable Storage Area Networking (SAN) software for OS X.  This gives FibreShare users many iSCSI storage options to integrate into their SAN.

Charismac will also offer users of ATTO’s Accelware SAN software for OS 9 an aggressive upgrade path to update their software to FibreShare V2.0 for OS X.

“By qualifying ATTO’s iSCSI Initiator Technology in FibreShare we have given our end users a very high-end, high-performance option they can integrate into their FibreShare SANs,” said Wyler Furgeson, President and CEO of Charismac Engineering. “We are also very excited about our FibreShare V2.0 upgrade path for ATTO Accelware customers currently running OS 9. We can offer them a cost-effective way to move their SAN up to OS X now that the majority of audio and video editing applications can be run under OS X. This will definitely provide the end user with ways in which they can be more productive.”

FibreShare V2.0, released in early summer, has been met with very enthusiastic demand as it hits the market as the first SAN sharing solution to ship in volume with support for OS X. FibreShare V2.0 allows multiple users to access shared storage over high-performance Fibre Channel connection. Using a dual-port ATTO fibre channel card and a 2 GB Fibre channel storage array such as Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) XRAID, FibreShare v2.0 users can see speeds in excess of 200 MB/sec at each workstation in a SAN environment while seamlessly sharing data between hosts. ATTO ExpressPCI Fibre Channel host adapters feature Advanced Data Streaming (ADStm) Technology, which boosts the performance of data-intensive video, audio and prepress environments through fast and efficient transfer of large-block data.
