Viking Enterprise Solutions and ATTO Technology Announce Certification Partnership and Industry-Leading Performance Testing Results

SAN JOSE, Calif. – July 23, 2019 – Viking Enterprise Solutions, a product division of Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), and ATTO Technology, Inc, a global leader in storage and network connectivity and infrastructure solutions, today announced a partnership to combine their cutting-edge products. The collaboration will result in a certified, fully integrated and high performance storage solution that is ideal for content creation and media workflows. As part of the agreement, ATTO Celerity™ 16Gb and 32Gb host bus adapters (HBAs) will be included in Viking Enterprise Solutions Fx60-HD/HP all-flash storage platforms.

Industry-Leading Performance Testing Results

Running an AJA System Test, the Viking Enterprise Solutions Fx60 storage appliance achieved over 3800 MB/s write speed and over 4500 MB/s read performance, while streaming 4096×3112 at 10bit RGB (Full Aperture 4K) video to an ATTO Celerity 322E (32Gb HBA). The ATTO Celerity 162P (16Gb HBA) results exceeded 2500 MB/s writes and 3080 MB/s reads, respectively.

Resolution of 4096×3112 Full Aperture 4K requires 1224 MB/s to stream at 24fps. Together with ATTO Celerity HBAs, a Viking Enterprise Solutions Fx60 storage appliance supports five separate streams of 3840×2160 at 10bit RGB 4K UHD (24fps).

“The Viking Enterprise Fx60 is a powerful storage solution for media professionals working with HD, 2K, 4K and even higher video files,” said Timothy J. Klein, president and CEO, ATTO Technology. “We’re very happy to be working with Viking Enterprise Solutions on this platform.”

“Interoperability with multiple vendor components is a core element of our strategy, and the performance results we’re seeing with ATTO are particularly compelling to the Media and Entertainment market we are targeting with these solutions,” said Daniel Liddle, vice president of Marketing at Viking Enterprise Solutions, Division of Sanmina.

ATTO Celerity HBAs deliver the fastest data throughput (both MB/s and IOPs) available for today’s most demanding storage environments. Celerity features ATTO Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) and ATTO MultiPath Director™ technologies, providing a redundant, high-performance connectivity solution that thrives in data-intensive environments just as the Viking Enterprise Fx60-HD/HP family does.

The Fx60-HD/HP platform includes all-flash, high performance, high density and high-availability storage appliances with integrated software and hardware, delivering 5M random 4k IOPs (reads) and throughput of 22GB/s (reads).
