ATTO allow your systems to run longer, faster and smoother with new RAID technology.

ATTO Technology have now incorporated DriveAssure™ Technology in to their industry-leading range of ExpressSAS RAID adapters and FastStream Storage Controllers giving them the ability to prevent premature drive failures, leading to faster application performance and reliable data protection.

DriveAssure Technology
Drive assessment and latency management technology is now built in to ATTO RAID adapters and storage controllers.  DriveAssure provides bounded latency through proprietary algorithms and user controls to prevent premature drive failures and slow downs, ensuring uninterrupted access to data.  Through periodic drive scans, DriveAssure searches for bad sectors or slow spots and repairs them without failing the drive, preventing the loss of critical assets.
Guaranteed Latency
A slow drive in a storage array can lead to delays that increase real or perceived response times beyond what is desired.  These delays can lead to unwanted behaviour such as dropped frames within video application environments.  DriveAssure compensates for situations when a drive in a RAID Group does not respond within a specified period of time to keep date moving smoothly within a guaranteed latency response time.
Benefits of DriveAssure Technology
  • Enhanced Productivity – uninterrupted access to data allows systems and applications to run longer, faster and smoother.
  • Increased Data Protection – with constant monitoring of drive health and prompt response to errors the potential for lost data is significantly reduced.
  • Cost Savings – a reduction in the number of premature drive replacements will increase ROI and reduce administrative costs.
  • Read/Write Performance – lower occurrences of drive failures with DriveAssure increases the bandwidth available for application performance.
