SAS Takes Disk Storage to the Next Level

SAS disk technology is set to replace FC disks by 2012. The November issue of  Tech OnTap includes a question and answer session I had with Doug Coatney of  NetApp engineering, who answers questions about SAS and the new NetApp SAS-based  disk shelf, the DS4243. This new shelf adheres to the Storage Bridge Bay  standard, supports both SAS and SATA disks in HA configurations, and includes  new out-of-band management capabilities. You can check out the article at http://www.netapp.com/us/communities/tech-ontap/tot-sas-disk-storage-0911.html <http://www.netapp.com/us/communities/tech-ontap/tot-sas-disk-storage-0911.html>

 

What  are your company’s plans with regard to SAS? Do the features of the DS4243  better meet your disk subsystem requirements?
