24G SAS increases performance with double the effective speed and optimizations for SSD and SMR.
SAS, or Serial Attached SCSI, has been in use for more than 10 years, starting with 3.0 Gb/s SAS in 2004 and then doubling in effective bandwidth with the release of each new generation. The newest speed bump is the 24G SAS; end-user products using 24G SAS are anticipated in late 2020. In addition to effectively doubling the effective bandwidth from the current 12Gb/s SAS, the 24G SAS has optimizations for both SSD and HDD.
