    Short for Fibre Channel ATA FATA is a hybrid hard drive first introduced by HP in 2004 that combines both Fibre Channel and ATAtechnologies. FATA drives use an ATA drive mechanism, offering the same performance and capacity as a standard ATA drive, but also feature a Fibre Channel connector, which enables the FATA drive to be used where conventional Fibre Channel drives are currently connected.
