||Installation of the Sonnet (ATTO OEM) RAID card in an 8-core Mac Pro with a Fusion D800RAID, R800RAID, or D400RAID storage system.||May-12-09|
||ATTO R380 RAID Software (Feb. 2008)||Aug-05-09|
|The February 2008 release of the ATTO software broke the "automaponboot" feature, in which an array that is moved to another machine will be automatically recognized. Sonnet will not be posting this update. For customers who may have upgraded directly from ATTO, we recommend they change the automaponboot setting to 'disabled.' This way on each reboot the mappings will persist.|
The new ATTO software release included these enhancements:
* Staggered startup.
* Autorebuild - RAID will automatically start rebuilding if it finds a damaged disk replaced by a clean one.
* Adaptive read-ahead policy - will read ahead for long data streams, not for short ones.
