Standard Data Protection Device
RDX is recognized by all backup applications which support disk-backup, so you need no special adaptions and drivers

Proven and trusted technology
Over 500.000 businesses store their data on our RDX Technology, so also you can trust in RDX 

Fast and easy deployment
RDX QuikStor is connected via SAS or USB and is presented as a drive-letter. RDX QuikStation is attached via iSCSI. Each drive is a iSCSI target. All these are techniques you already know 

Easy to use
Just use it like another disk. For eject, just use the button at the front. 

Flexible configurations depending on customer needs
You can be define several modes in RDX QuikStation, like RDX drives, disk libraries, tape libraries or hybrid mode. This makes you independent and flexible.

Fast Data-Access because of random file access and high transfer rate makes your operations faster. 

Low operating cost
Does not spin if not is use, so RDX provides low power consumption. This saves money.

ATTO Enhances Management and Monitoring Capabilities with VMware vCenter

ATTO Technology, Inc., today announced it has enhanced both management and monitoring capabilities for VMware vCenter with its new vConfigTool. This virtualization management utility also features Latency Scout, a storage I/O latency diagnostic tool developed in conjunction with VMware. 

ATTO’s vConfigTool is a software plug-in that integrates simplified, centralized management and monitoring into VMware vCenter Server for virtual environments. Using the exclusive Latency Scout feature, IT administrators can quickly identify bottlenecks to ensure optimal performance and maximum infrastructure uptime via real-time kernel, device and guest OS latency histograms. ATTO additionally provides guidance on how to make improvements based on Latency Scout results. With vConfigTool, IT administrators using VMware vSphere 5.5 and later web clients can accelerate adapter deployments, optimize configurations, improve system availability and reduce the cost of managing VMware host infrastructures. 

Products supporting vConfigTool include ATTO’s Celerity 16Gb Gen 5 Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters and ExpressSAS 12Gb SAS Host Bus Adapters. Both lines have been tested and certified with VMware vCenter and ESXi Server platforms. ATTO is also a certified CIM provider. ATTO’s VMware solutions are designed to support real-time virtual environments resulting in higher application performance, better transaction processing and an ability to handle larger workloads. Combined with the new vConfigTool and Latency Scout management and monitoring features, IT administrators can now better manage and meet corporate service level agreements (SLA).
