Alex Haser, Board Member, SCSI Trade Association Presents “How to Connect a SAS System” Available On-Demand Beginning Tuesday, September 28 at 11:20 a.m.

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27, 2021 — For more than 15 years, Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) has been the storage technology of choice for business-critical applications in data centers. The SCSI Trade Association (STA) today announced 24G SAS storage connectivity will be in the spotlight at the 2021 Storage Developer Conference, a must-attend storage industry event sponsored by the Storage Networking Industry Association.

In her presentation, Haser provides a quick reference to the menu of standard components required to assemble a SAS system, from either a hard disk or solid-state SAS drive out to the enclosure level, including the associated box-to-box cabling.

The recently published SAS Integrator’s Guide, which provides additional detail on the subject, can be downloaded at:

What: How to Connect a SAS System
Speaker: Alex Haser, Board Member, SCSI Trade Association, Senior Industry Standards Engineer, Molex
Where: Virtual Storage Developer Conference 2021
When: Available on demand beginning Tuesday, September 28 at 11:20 a.m

“24G SAS is backwards compatible with existing tried-and-true SAS ecosystems,” said Haser. “A variety of connectors and cables enable implementation flexibility and have been updated to support 24G SAS systems. We hope you’ll register for SDC and learn more about why SAS remains so ubiquitous.”
