Scale Logic announces official partnership with UK-based Polar Graphics to manage European sales operations

January 16th, 2020

Scale Logic, the global leader in advanced media workflow solutions, announced today that it is embarking on a new agreement and relationship with industry veteran Polar Graphics, a leading UK-based manufacturer’s representative for the broadcast, post-production, and professional audiovisual industries.

Under the newly forged partnership, Polar Graphics will begin managing Scale Logic's entire European sales operations, making it responsible for penetrating European markets and providing comprehensive sales management of Scale Logic’s products and services. With this new partnership, Scale Logic, which currently boasts many of the world’s top brands as clients, will be able to mirror its already tremendous global success.

Furthermore, the Polar Graphics partnership will also see a highly scaled expansion of the Scale Logic European team, enabling Scale Logic to make significant and further inroads into the European market.

“We have an incredible track record in developing small, medium, and enterprise media workflows for broadcast, post-production, sports, and corporate clients," commented Al Rao, VP of Global Sales for Scale Logic. "Now, with our newly formed partnership with Polar Graphics—and bringing the level of sophistication and international expertise our customers expect—we plan to expedite the expansion of our market share in Europe. The Polar Graphics team has an immense ability to understand the depth of our products and services and to educate the European channel, making us a perfect match for the Scale Logic Amsterdam logistics and technical operations division.”

“We are extremely excited to be working with Scale Logic,” said Peter Rowsell, Managing Director of Polar Graphics. “For many years, we have maintained close relationships with the company’s senior management team, witnessing first-hand the astounding evolution of their highly comprehensive solutions. It is for this reason that Polar Graphics is so well positioned to continue Scale Logic’s European market acquisition efforts. Now, by bringing our own unique processes to the partnership, we look forward to a highly successful and long-lasting relationship in the years to come.”

In addition, Scale Logic has already established a sterling reputation and credibility in the marketplace, which will ensure a successful introduction of its products and services to European resellers and end customers. With this, Scale Logic and Polar Graphics will jointly bring new levels of support services to customers throughout Europe, including 24x7 health monitoring, extended services on over 100 storage and network manufacturers’ products as well as data migration, data recycling, and legacy buy-backs.

With more than 30+ years of experience, Scale Logic continues to be a trusted advisor and go-to partner for the world's largest companies, creating highly robust, multi-tiered storage, networking, and data management solutions. In fact, Scale Logic's Enterprise Support Services division has become known for perfecting a revolutionary approach that enables any company utilizing enterprise storage and networking solutions to replace, expand, and enhance existing infrastructure at a fraction of the cost.

This renowned reputation and approach continues to pave the way for companies to migrate to new technologies while ensuring seamless support services during the process—all while providing extended support services at significantly lower prices. It's this practice that also enables companies to drastically reduce maintenance and support costs by up to 50%, thereby freeing CAPEX.

Amherst, NY — ATTO Technology, Inc.

October 20, 2014 ATTO, today announced its continued commitment to Apple and its innovations with Mac OS® X Yosemite driver support for its Celerity™ Fibre Channel Host Bust Adapters (HBAs), 6Gb/s ExpressSAS™ SAS/SATA HBAs and RAID Adapters, FastFrame™ Network Interface Cards (NICs) and Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) as well as Thunderbolt™ Desklink Devices. Today’s announcement makes ATTO the only high-performance connectivity provider with a full portfolio of adapters available on the market that support the latest Apple® operating system. Customers can download the latest drivers immediately.

As the recognized leader in powering high-performance workflows for over 25 years, ATTO’s portfolio of network and storage connectivity products address all aspects of media production and IT infrastructure with fully integrated solutions that support each step in the process from content creation to monetization. The new OS X Yosemite operating system sets a new standard for Apple OS performance and complements why users rely on ATTO products. Mac OS X has long been a platform of choice for creative professionals, and applications such as HD and 4K digital production and video editing have expanded file sizes and project complexity, pushing users to grow their storage footprint exponentially. For its part, ATTO has continued to innovate and provide the most reliable products powering these high-performance infrastructures, including the most demanding applications in media and entertainment, government and education, scientific, and large data block environments.

"The Apple community has consistently relied on ATTO to power every facet of high-performance infrastructures and together have revolutionized workflows from creation to delivery," said Wayne Arvidson, vice president of marketing and channels at ATTO Technology, Inc. "ATTO’s decades long relationship with Apple, and the release of these drivers, demonstrate our continuing commitment to Apple’s operating system, further allowing Mac® users access to the latest technology needed to meet their increasing demand for faster storage and network connectivity solutions."

Apple’s highly anticipated release last year of the redesigned Mac Pro, coupled with ATTO’s release of Thunderbolt enabled Desklink products, sparked the imagination of the high-end creative professional. As a pioneer in Thunderbolt enabled solutions, ATTO has worked closely with Apple to provide connectivity to high performance Fibre Channel and SAS/SATA storage, as well as 10Gb/s Ethernet. Earlier this year, ATTO released its newest extension of the Desklink family, Thunderbolt 2 enabled products with transfer speeds at 20Gb/s, ideal for the creative professional who needs access to external storage and networks for I/O demanding applications, including 2K, 4K, 3D and ultra high-definition video post-production workflows.

ATTO also offers several software-based productivity and performance-enhancing solutions for the Apple market supporting OS X Yosemite. Xtend SAN iSCSI Intiatiator software allows Mac users to garner the benefits of Internet SCSI (iSCSI), one of the fastest growing storage networking protocols today. With iSCSI, users can use key SAN applications such as collaborative digital video/audio workflows, laptop connectivity to SANs, and remote backups. In addition, ATTO’s Express Power Center software is a disk storage RAID application that allows users to maximize attached storage when using ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel HBAs, ExpressSAS/SATA and RAID Adapters and Desklink Devices for everything from digital content creation to large scale databases.
