ATTO technology and Nyriad enable real-time video

AMHERST, NY, Nov. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ATTO Technology, Inc. and Nyriad, Inc. announce a new, joint solution that eliminates data flow bottlenecks that have previously impeded media editing processes. The solution, which includes ATTO FastFrame™ 3 SmartNICs and ThunderLink® Thunderbolt™ adapters, as well as the all-new Nyriad UltraIO™ storage system, also increases fault tolerance for enhanced data protection.

The combined processor architecture of the Nyriad UltraIO storage system harnesses the speed and power of GPUs and CPUs in a block storage platform to provide a unique combination of performance, resilience, and efficiency.

ATTO FastFrame 3 SmartNICs and ATTO ThunderLink Thunderbolt Adapters are purpose-built to support high-performance media with exclusive technology that reduces latency to just 1μs while smoothing data streams for consistency and reliability.

The combination of Nyriad and ATTO products quadruples write throughput, enabling inline scrubbing and editing of raw 8K and higher video footage without the need for transcoding, creating proxies, or copying files over the network to local editing stations. This can save setting up new projects.

“This is an amazing, state-of-the-art storage and data delivery solution that everyone involved in post production has been waiting for,” said Tim Klein, President/CEO of ATTO Technology. “Nyriad’s GPU-based platform definitely unlocks the true power of our Ethernet hardware.”

Derek Dicker, CEO of Nyriad added: “We are very excited to be working with ATTO on solutions that will enable dramatically improved production efficiencies. ATTO’s SmartNiCs and adapters are tailor-made for media applications and are the perfect complement to Nyriad’s UltraIO storage system, offering our customers incredible performance with disk economy.”

The fault tolerance of the UltraIO storage system combined with ATTO’s dual-port interfaces allows your team to continue working even in sub-optimal situations. Nyriad’s UltraIO system can withstand up to 20 drive failures simultaneously while maintaining 95% of its maximum throughput1. Dual-port ATTO interfaces can survive the loss of entire switch fabrics without failure.
