SANBlaze Announces Rear Transition Module (RTM) Product Family With I/O Enhancements for ATCA Blades

ATCA Solutions Now Feature Functionality Typically Found in Rack-Mount Servers

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2010) -  SANBlaze Technology, Inc., a leading provider of storage and networking solutions for the embedded computing market, today announced the SB-RTM41x family of Rear Transition Modules (RTM), with a set of core I/O functionality that includes Video, USB, RS232, COMM, Ethernet, and SAS boot controller. Specific product models provide additional features or I/O connectivity noted below:

The SB-RTM410 includes the core I/O, Dual 4Gb Fibre Channel plus one fixed 2.5" SAS, SATA or SSD disk.

The SB-RTM413 includes the core I/O, plus one removable 2.5" SAS, SATA or SSD disk and one additional SFP Ethernet port.

The SB-RTM414 includes the core I/O, plus one fixed 1.8" SATA or SSD disk, and one additional SFP Ethernet port.

SB-RTM41x models use PCI-express on the zone-3 connector, and are compatible with ATCA hosts blades available from Diversified Technology (DTI) and Oracle (formerly Sun Microsystems), but can be adapted to other leading ATCA CPU vendors easily.

"We've found many customers are considering ATCA as a build-out alternative to rack mount servers. However, a good percentage weren't quite ready to completely give up the typical KVM functions," said Steve Looby, Director of Product Management at SANBlaze. "These RTM products enable ATCA to become a more seamless replacement when the deployment requires a KVM style interface and control model."

All RTM product models utilize commodity off-the-shelf, nonproprietary cables. Standard connectors include a DB-15 Video connector, USB, micro-DB9 serial and two RJ45 pass-through management ports (RS232 and 1 GbE Ethernet). All products are available now.
