6G SAS Draws Support

Arthur Cole

Industry support is starting to line up behind 6 Gbps SAS technology, with no fewer than six top server vendors stepping up to the plate this week.

 

LSI Corp. announced that it has gained purchase orders from Dell, Fujitsu-Siemens, IBM, Intel, NEC and Sun for the company's latest 6Gbps RAID-on-Chip (RoC) solution. The expectation is that the device will find its way into entry-level to enterprise-class machines by the middle of next year.

 

The move comes less than a month after the iSCSI Trade Association put the finishing touches on the SAS-2 specification that spells out 6G SAS performance. The technology offers a doubling of throughput over current 3G solutions and is said to provide increased scalability and RAS (reliability, availability and serviceability) performance.

 

The organization is planning a 6G SAS plugfest at the University of New Hampshire's InterOperability Laboratory on November 10. LSI is expected to bring its RoC IC, as well as a pair of RAID adapters, both of which are already sampling at various OEMs.
