A unique feature of the SAS technology allows both the high end Serial Attached SCSI
and the entry level Serial ATA drives to be mixed and matched in the same serial drive cage.
Reducing SAN Costs and Complexity with iSCSI and Serial Attached SCSI
Harry Mason, President of the STA Board of Directors and Director of Industry Marketing at LSI Logic, stated, "The Serial Attached SCSI
specification continues its predicted development and review schedule.
Serial Attached SCSI
has emerged to deliver higher levels of reliability than previous generations of SCSI for mission-critical transactional applications that must be online around-the-clock with no data loss.
Bill, how is serial attached SCSI
going to impact a small form factor disk drive?
MASON: Well, the serial attached SCSI
is an architecture that was created as a replacement for the legacy of parallel SCSI technology.
2009 will be a watershed year for Serial Attached SCSI
as volume OEM shipments continue to increase and new 6Gb/s SAS products are readied for industry introductions," said Harry Mason, president of STA.
The advent of Serial Attached SCSI
(SAS) answers the growing demand for more flexible solutions that deliver both higher performance and greater cost effectiveness.
SAN FRANCISCO -- The SCSI Trade Association (STA), a member-run industry association established to support and promote SCSI technology, announced today that the next generation of Serial Attached SCSI
(SAS) is ready to enter the enterprise storage market after five years of research and development.
SAN FRANCISCO -- SCSI Trade Association (STA) will exhibit Serial Attached SCSI
(SAS) products in booth # 322 at Moscone Center.
In doing so, Serial Attached SCSI
will generate a larger potential base of customers for Serial ATA storage since the Serial Attached SCSI
interface will support both Serial Attached SCSI
and Serial ATA disk drives.
AUSTIN, Texas -- The family of 3M brand Serial Attached SCSI
(SAS) interconnects has expanded to include three additional products: a vertical through-hole receptacle with 29 positions; a hybrid receptacle with 29 positions, including surface mount signal leads and through-hole power tails; and a special 22-position SAS host receptacle, which was designed without a secondary signal port to eliminate unnecessary or unused contacts.
