Microsemi Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Microchip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP), today announced its new SXP 24G family of devices, the industry’s first 24G SAS (SAS-4) expanders for server and networked storage. 24G SAS doubles the bandwidth of the storage interconnect, which enables the full bandwidth of the PCIe Gen 4 to be utilized by the storage interconnect.
Chet Mercado, STA Board Member and Technical Marketing Engineer, Devices Business Unit at Western Digital Corporation, will be a panelist on the “Software Visions for High Performance Applications—Holding the beast at bay” panel session, Tuesday, October 23 at 8:00 a.m.-9:30 a.m. at Storage Visions in Santa Clara, CA.
As SSDs become increasingly common, it’s important to select a highly-scalable storage protocol with a strong feature roadmap designed to take advantage of unique properties of random access, memory-based storage. During this session, Chet will discuss how 24G SAS retains significant advantages when deployed in enterprise solutions as compared to protocols that rely on PCIe as the underlying data transport. He will help the audience learn about how SAS can help them in the real world with its ability to significantly scale, manageability, true hot swap capability, and error handling at a system level. Applications driving 24G SAS, the ecosystem it operates in, and the underlying technology will be addressed.
If you’ll be at Storage Visions, please join us at this session on October 23.

Robust Dual-Port and Multipath for High Availability and Efficient Sharing - September 29, 2016
by Jeremiah Tussey, Sr. Alliance Manager, Microsemi Serial-attached SCSI (SAS) is the robust choice for dual-port and multipath solutions, and is critical for high availability and efficiently sharing HDDs and SSDs in an ecosystem. End-to-end data integrity is also an important need for many enterprise applications. Only SAS supports the full SCSI command set, with… Read more »
