    Hi,

    SCSI. Basically, a SAS drive utilizes the same form factor as a SATA drive but has several high performance advantages. First of all, there’s the platter speed. While typical SATA drives operate at 7200RPM, a SAS drive operates at 10K or 15K. Although the platter speed is double that of SATA, the MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure) remains at the industry standard of 1.2 million hours.
    SAS drives are typically utilized in server and high-end workstation environments where speed and I/O frequency reign supreme. Now, that being said, there are so many factors in building a screaming fast, but rock-solid, workstation or server.

    Thanks & Regards Ashish@S
