Grass Valley Selects ATTO Technology to Provide Mac iSCSI Connectivity for K2 Media Server Family

ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announced today that its Xtend SAN iSCSI Initiator for Mac OS X has been chosen by Grass Valley to provide high performance iSCSI connectivity for their K2 Media Servers. ATTO’s Xtend SAN provides iSCSI storage connectivity for Apple Final Cut Studio systems that use the Grass Valley Connect plug-in for K2 Media Servers. The K2 platform delivers unmatched audio and video processing plus high-speed networking and robust storage to ensure all video is accurately accessed, edited and played out.

Xtend SAN is the first and most widely-distributed, standalone iSCSI Initiator that allows Mac users to attach and load balance storage connected via an Ethernet-based network. With Xtend SAN, users can remotely access iSCSI storage from multiple servers, increasing accessibility and simplifying storage management, while leveraging existing IT expertise. Xtend SAN provides added value for OEM customers whose environments require greater security and automation with features such as a scriptable Command Line Interface, Header and Data Digests, CHAP and iSNS support.

“Xtend SAN enables Mac users to take advantage of Ethernet-based storage solutions with the industry’s most used and best supported iSCSI initiator on the market”, states Tim Klein, President and CEO of ATTO Technology. “The selection of Xtend SAN by Grass Valley for inclusion with the Final Cut plug-in provides K2 users a proven Mac iSCSI connectivity option while reinforcing ATTO’s role in delivering leading storage infrastructure solutions.”

"Providing Final Cut editors an iSCSI storage connectivity option was an important decision”, said Ed Casaccia, Director of Product Marketing for Servers and Storage for Grass Valley. “We wanted a solid Mac iSCSI initiator suited for broadcast use from a company that was willing to work with us to provide what our users needed to allow K2 Mac integration in K2 iSCSI SAN environments. We found that Xtend SAN was a hassle-free initiator that just worked and was easy to implement and integrate with the K2 Media Server.”
