One million IOPS. One 8-port 12GB/s SAS RAID-on-Chip. Enough said.
LSI is showing off their newest SAS technology. Running at double the transfer rate of current SAS technology, the new 12GB/s SAS solution will also be backwards compatible with older 6GB/s and 3GB/s infrastructures. The new generation of connectivity includes new connectors as well as high density cabling.
“12Gb/s SAS technology will enable a new performance class of storage tiering that spans the enterprise from high-performance solid state storage to mega datacenter scale-out architectures,” said Dave Reinsel, group vice president, Storage and Semiconductors, IDC. “Early silicon availability is a critical first step toward 12Gb/s SAS infrastructure development, paving the way for a smooth technology transition and market adoption by late 2013.”
