SAS advances in network server designs

Keywords:SATA? network server storage? Serial Attached SCSI?

As the turn of the last millennium approached, it was clear that parallel SCSI had run its course as the interconnect of choice in network server storage. Ultra320 SCSI was the last generation of parallel SCSI and we will likely see the last of any new shipments this year.

A number of replacement technologies once considered for the volume server segment of the market, including a variety of SATA and Fiber Channel derivatives gave way, and Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) ultimately prevailed. Beginning late 2006, major network server platform releases embraced 3Gb/s SAS and there has been no looking back.

Server platform releases are significant because they establish a volume foothold in the mainstream segment of the multi-user server market, and provide a launching point for further market penetration. Now successfully rooted in these platforms, SAS is poised to further its penetration.

We will look at the opportunities that exist in adjacent markets and show how SAS intends to capture a larger portion of the storage enterprise.
