SCSI Trade Association Unveils Updated SAS Roadmap

Innovations in 12Gb and objectives of 24Gb

Highlighting continued innovation and increased performance in the SCSI storage interface protocol, the SCSI Trade Association (STA) unveiled its latest SAS technology roadmaps at the fifteenth annual Storage Visions Conference in Las Vegas.

SAS Roadmap - 6Gb/s to 12Gb/s to 24 Gb/s SAS

Showing the availability of prototypes and end-user products for each generation of SAS, the roadmaps include a schedule for the next generation 24Gb SAS, SAS external and internal cabling solutions and a look at SAS device-to-mid-plane interconnects.

For storage professionals seeking fast, flexible and reliable data access, SAS continues to be the proven platform for innovation. As evident in these robust roadmaps, SAS provides superior enterprise system performance, connectivity and scalability. In a storage visions conference panel presentation discussed the latest innovations in 12Gb SAS including:

  • More efficient use of Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) with the new Zoned Block Command feature for increased density in HDDs
  • Support for the U.2 initiative through the SFF-8639 connector
  • The MultiLink SAS architecture, a slot-compatible implementation that takes advantage of the increasing performance of SSDs in standard form factors as well as support for existing HDDs
  • The Storage Intelligence feature that optimizes SSD applications, boosts storage system performance and increases the endurance of SSDs

During a presentation at Storage Visions, attendees were provided with an overview of 24Gb SAS objectives that double the bandwidth of 12Gb SAS, support two generations of backward compatibility and preserve the existing SAS value proposition. 24Gb SAS commercial devices are expected in the marketplace in 2018.

The demand for digital data creation and consumption is growing every year and this growth in content capacity requires not just more storage devices but faster interfaces to move that data around to where it is needed. The SCSI Trade Association is showing further innovations in the SAS storage interface that will support the growth in enterprise storage applications.
