Seagate introducerer Serial Attached SCSI (SAS)

Serielt interface på SCSI harddiske sætter ny standard for toppen af kransekagen, hvad hurtige harddiske angår. Seagate har formået at forbinde SCSI's veludrustede funktioner med endnu højere hastighed. SAS er kompatibel med SATA og gør det dermed muligt at opbygge systemer med begge typer af harddiske.

Pressemeddelse:
SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif.—10 November 2004
Seagate Technology (NYSE:STX), the world's leading supplier of disc drives, today announced its Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) drives are being sampled by OEMs for qualification. This news comes on the heels of Seagate's recent successful completion of SAS interoperability testing at the third SCSI Trade Association SAS Plugfest at the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Laboratory. Seagate Savvio 10K.1 and Cheetah 15K.4 drives were used at the Plugfest, which helped reinforce confidence in Seagate's SAS technology and underpin the industry's readiness to deliver SAS solutions to the market.

As the enterprise technology leader and founding member of the SAS Working Group, Seagate SAS solutions were the most often deployed during the Plugfest, the largest yet with 21 companies participating to test their products. The demonstration confirmed successful interoperability of both its Cheetah 15K.4 and Savvio 10K.1 drives with a large variety of SAS configurations and topologies. OEMs and system builders alike will adopt Seagate's new SAS solutions for use in their enterprise-class servers, storage arrays and cutting-edge workstations.

The Cheetah 15K.4 and Savvio 10K.1 drive solutions together bring the highest levels of performance and reliability for IT professionals in the enterprise. When combined with SAS, these drives add additional breakthrough benefits, including greater system scalability, lowered total cost of ownership and manageability.

The Cheetah 15K.4 price-per-performance value, united with breakthrough benefits of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), makes it the optimal 3.5-inch drive for rock-solid enterprise storage. The Cheetah 15K.4 delivers the lowest-cost-per performance, enabling fast IOPS transactions with unmatched reliability.

Seagate Savvio 10K.1 is the industry's first 2.5-inch enterprise drive, making a variety of new high-IO, high-density storage solutions possible. Serial Attached SCSI's point-to-point, full-duplex architecture and compact connectors are perfect matches for Seagate's Savvio 10K.1 to enable lower-cost-of ownership, space efficient server and storage array platforms.

"Seagate is committed to delivering the highest-performing, most reliable storage solutions to its customers," said Jeff Loebbaka, Seagate vice president of global marketing. "With the completion of this third Plugfest, Seagate is pleased to announce that its first technology-leading SAS solutions are now ready to ship to the industry. SAS-enabled systems using Seagate storage such as Savvio 10K.1, the industry's first 2.5-inch enterprise disc drive, will provide exceptional levels of system performance and reliability."

Seagate's SAS-enabled Cheetah 15K.4 and Savvio 10K.1 are shipping now for qualification into OEM systems, with general availability set to occur simultaneously with the industry's other SAS solutions in approximately Q1 2005.

About Serial Attached SCSI
Serial Attached SCSI is the next step for the enterprise industry's storage I/O standard interface. SAS technology extends SCSI interface solutions beyond Ultra320 to the next-generation Direct Attach Storage (DAS) server and workstation markets while retaining device-level backward compatibility. And because the SAS physical layer is compatible with SATA, users will have the choice of populating SAS systems with either SATA or SAS hard disk drives, or a combination of both. Boasting features that liberate SCSI from its parallel predecessor, Serial Attached SCSI delivers new levels of breakthrough speed and connectivity while retaining the functionality and reliability of SCSI.

Seagate's serial I/O expertise and early R&D investment into developing Serial Attached SCSI will provide customers with best-in-class, reliable, and time-to-market products. With enterprise storage requirements escalating and becoming more complex, factors such as data center consolidation, reliability, security, scalability and accessibility are more critical than ever. Enterprise data centers must be online all the time, fulfill requests from numerous users simultaneously, allow for constant growth and expansion and be maintained while in operation. Serial Attached SCSI meets all these demands while providing the highest performance at optimal capacity points.
