ATTO Technology XstreamCORE(TM) Achieves VMware Ready(TM) Status

AMHERST, N.Y., Aug. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage and network connectivity products for data-intensive computing environments for nearly 30 years, today announced that its XstreamCORE™ Storage Controller has achieved VMware Ready™ status. This designation indicates that after a detailed validation process the XstreamCORE 7500 has achieved VMware's highest level of endorsement, and can be found on the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX) at

XstreamCORE Storage Controllers feature ATTO's xCORE data acceleration and eCORE control engine technology. These enable the XstreamCORE to achieve high performance with sub-4 microsecond latency while adding common, open storage services including routing and host and LUN zoning functions to attached JBOD, JBOF or RAID storage.

"By using ATTO's XstreamCORE Storage Controller with VMware's vSphere 6.0 enterprises can offload host server, fabric and network resources from up to 5200 MB/s of read/write traffic, effectively giving the VMware vSphere Hypervisor more server resources for running VMs," said James U'Ren, Storage Controller product manager at ATTO Technology. "Additionally, applications such as cloning, vMotion, VM deployment and copying data between any attached storage benefit from overall improved performance."

"We are pleased that ATTO Technology's XstreamCORE Storage Controller qualifies for the VMware Ready™ logo, signifying to customers that it has met specific VMware integration and interoperability standards and works effectively with VMware cloud infrastructure, which can speed time to value within customer environments," said Howard Hall, senior director, Global Technology Partner Organization, VMware.

The VMware Ready program is a co-branding benefit of the Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program that makes it easy for customers to identify partner products certified to work with VMware cloud infrastructure. Customers can use these products and solutions to lower project risks and realize cost savings over custom built solutions. With thousands of members worldwide, the VMware TAP program includes best-of-breed technology partners with the shared commitment to bring the best expertise and business solution for each unique customer need.
