FastStream™ SC 8200
SAS to SAS/SATA RAID Storage Controller
Product Features
Collaborative Workflow
• Multiple SAS links allow several
workstations to access storage
Instant Data Protection
• Aggregate inexpensive JBOD
storage to create a high performance, data protected solution
• Multiple paths to storage provide
additional reliability in the event
of a link failure
Blazing Fast Performance
• 6-Gigabit connectivity provides
the highest available bandwidth
for streaming applications
• The FastStream SC provides the
performance to support digital
film, YUV 10-bit uncompressed
high definition video and multiple
streams of DVCPro HD video
Smooth Data Streaming
• ADS technology manages
latency to maximize stream
counts within available bandwidth
• Allocate storage as needed on
an application by application
basis with the on-the-fly capacity
• Add additional storage and
expand existing RAID Groups
while keeping all data intact.
One-click Installation
• One button setup wizards
optimize for Video, Audio,
Database and General IT
FastStream Storage Controllers
Enable High Performance Storage
for Collaborative Environments
The ATTO FastStream SC 8200 enables shared
storage using SAS connections available on editing workstations, PCIe slots are quite valuable,
and the availability of these slots are becoming
difficult to come by with production specific cards
for video, compression, editing and sound cards
among those vying for space.
FastStream Storage Controllers sit in front of
JBOD storage to provide best of class performance and instant RAID parity protection. Mix SAS
and SATA storage to integrate into a tiered storage solution and access non-block storage (Tape
and Optical drives) alongside disk storage. FastStream adds advanced intelligence features such
as Phone Home email alerts, real-time performance metrics, Multipathing, hot spares and more.
ATTO’s Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) technology manages latency by providing controlled
acceleration for smooth data streaming. Normally,
disk drive head contention limits performance by
not providing enough constant bandwidth for
many streams of video or audio, ADS eliminates
contention issues to maintain the highest peak
performance to allow more streams of video and
audio than controllers with similar performance
FastStream also features tunable rebuild technology which enables full access to data in degraded
or rebuild mode providing maximum system bandwidth to applications while a RAID group repairs
itself. This allows projects to complete on time and
under budget in the event of a drive failure.
FastStream is suited for digital film production,
high-definition video post, digital prepress, disk-todisk backup, imaging, email compliance, data
warehousing, data mining and transaction based
