Overheard – Serial-attached SCSI (SAS)

“Beginning late 2006, major network server platform releases embraced 3Gb/s SAS and there has been no looking back.”

Harry Mason, Serial Attached SCSI storage moves ahead in network server designs

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.
