SAS: The New Paradigm

Overview: The advent of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) answers the growing demand for more flexible storage solutions that deliver both higher performance and greater economics. SAS retains the proven strengths of its parallel predecessor (rock-solid reliability, a rich and mature command set) while achieving exceptional throughput and remarkable scalability. But perhaps SASs most compelling feature is its compatibility with Serial ATA (SATA), which enables unprecedented freedom to select the most appropriate, cost-effective disc drive for a given storage application. Four distinct attributes of SAS make such storage efficiency possible: Performance, SAS/SATA Compatibility, Scalability and SAS/SCSI Integration.
