FOSE 2010 "SAS & SATA Change the Face of Enterprise Storage"
Marty Czekalski
(March 2010 - pdf)

OEMs, System Builders, and End-Users are deploying the feature-rich capabilities of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) to extend Direct Access Storage (DAS) architectures beyond the traditional usage models. Functioning as a storage solution backbone, SAS allows large numbers of either SAS and/or SATA hard disk drives to be deployed in a variety of storage application environments, effectively extending SAS into new storage realms.

SAS & SATA Combine to Change the Storage Market (PDF)
Harry Mason - Director Industry Marketing, LSI Corporation
Marty Czelkalski - Interface & Emerging Architecture Program Manager, Seagate Technology

Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) allows systems to be built that accommodates large numbers of either SAS and/or SATA hard disk drives. This presentation, intended for OEM, System Builders and End-Users, describes the capabilities of the SAS interface, how it's designed to interoperate with SATA drives and when combined, how these technologies can be combined to deliver some very compelling storage solutions.

6Gb/s SAS — Industry Rollout
Marty Czekalski
(September 2008 - pdf)

Industry Objectives:

  • Preserve 3Gb/s SAS usage models
  • Maintain 1.5Gb/s & 3Gb/s SATA/SAS compatibility
  • Improve storage system RAS attributes
  • Reduce the number of cabling connections options
  • Double transfer rate
  • Improve cost/performance & power/bandwidth ratio
  • Reduced # of connections per Gb/s
  • Eventual compatibility with 6Gb/s SATA
  • Improved link utilization
  • Improve rack-to-rack distances
