With Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) products now entering the market, system integrators and storage vendors are accelerating their transition to serial-based storage infrastructure. By taking the lead on delivering SAS-based solutions, these vendors can build high performance sub-systems while developing valuable expertise in this next generation direct-attach storage technology.
As storage integrators ramp their SAS design and validation efforts, they may benefit from using specialized test equipment to accelerate product qualification. Below are three protocol-level test tools that are playing a key role in validating SAS components as ready for enterprise-worthy applications.
