|“Beginning late 2006, major network server platform releases embraced 3Gb/s SAS and there has been no looking back.”|
Today I’m reading about SAS.
SAS is the only storage connect that embraces both the high-performance and high reliability disk drive offered with SAS connected drives, as well as providing native compatibility with low-cost per gigabyte SATA drives.
This capability allows common storage components to span a variety of storage environments, including tiered storage solutions. The ability of the storage system to scale is a critical attribute for enterprise critical data storage solutions.
