Can I add an LTO5 drive to my ATTO R680
on Mar 1, 2012 at 3:56:44 pm

I bought a 16 TB Expando Raid last year that uses the ATTO R680 controller. I'm interested in adding an LTO 5 drive for archiving and I was wondering if I can use the empty port on the ATTO card to interface with something like a Quantum external LTO SAS drive?

Herb,

Yes you can use the R680 with the LTO5 and the Evo6g. We sell a really nice LTO5 rackmount unit that you may want to take a look at. Feel free to contact me at the office at 714-374-4944.

Sincerely,

John West

I got my LTO 5 yesterday and I'm already up and running. It works flawlessly with the other port on the ATTO card that runs my EVO raid with no loss of speed. Just wanted to thank everyone at Maxx Digital for putting this system together for me.

Herb, I am thinking of upgrading from my 4 year old EVO2 to the 6G 16 TB Expando Raid when I make the switch from Mac Pro to a Sandy Bridge EP Dual Xeon PC. Are you happy with its performance? The EVO2 ha been a champ, but I always like to research new purchases.

It's been flawless. If you give it 8 PCIe lanes you'll get around 900+ MB/s. The bonus feature for me is the extra port on the ATTO R680 card which I now use for my LTO drive. So yes, I am very happy with it. On a side note - who is your PC vendor?

Thanks for the confirmation, Herb.

Well after lots of research Ive decided to go with Puget Systems. They are a class operation. I was able to configure a Sandy Bridge EP dual Xeon system with the fastest CPUs, 64 GB of ram and the Nvidia Maximus graphics card combo (Q4000 and Tesla 2075). I like their way of doing business.

Now I just have to mentally come to terms with the sticker shock.:D

I'd love to hear your impressions of the Maximus when you get it up and running. Good luck with your system.
