: 1200MB/s from MaxxDigital SAS/SATA Array!
Ok, late news flash as this information is actually from MacWorld (what two months ago now?!?) but the folks at ATTO were able to crank up two MaxxDigital EVO HD SAS/SATA units to 1200MB/s. 1200!!! Good Golly Miss Molly that's some serious horsepower.
Ok, ok, ok, how did they pull this off since you can't connect two systems to the same card? Easy, two ATTO R-380 SAS/SATA cards in a Mac pro. Then connect a MaxxDigital EVO HD unit to each card. Stripe both EVO HD units as one large storage array and presto, 1200MB/s.
Hmmmmm, how many streams of video would THAT be? You could do the Brady Bunch Open times 5 at least I suppose. Would be fun to test that out with Uncompressed HD and see if there's any way to do multiple streams of HD in realtime with filters.
Here's a photo only a mama could love. A bunch of tech geeks standing next to the unit with the speed tests displayed on the screen.
Yet another reason I love these guys. They're products are really fast, they work and you get this incredibly fine looking support staff to help you out. Ok, maybe not fine looking.... sorta geeky looking support staff...... maybe in a creepy sort of way......... but they know their stuff......so just pretend you don't know what they look like.........maybe I should just shut up now.
