However much of the aging equipment in use today cannot fully participate in current user environments due to compatibility limitations imposed by obsolete computer operating systems, or older SCSI interface technology.
plans to begin shipping next week a new enterprise-class ZeusIOPS SSD with serial-attached SCSI interface. The new drive would have a 6Gbit/sec SAS interface compared with the current 3Gbit/sec SAS SSD, according to an STEC representative.
But as the year progressed, Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), SCSI's serial replacement technology, evolved to become last year's principal storage trend as it joined forces with SATA to begin supplanting the aging parallel SCSI interface.
The fi-4860C2 VRS color/monochrome scanner from Fujitsu comes bundled with VirtualReScan 4.1 (VRS) automated document image-enhancement software, Adrenaline 650i SCSI interface boards and cable.
The FibreCAT TX24 offers a maximum 19.2TB storage capacity at a 24Mb/s data transfer rate for LTO-2 or 80Mb/s for LTO-3 and is connected to the host via an SCSI interface.
SAS technology enables SCSI interface solutions beyond Ultra320 to the next-generation Direct Attach Storage (DAS) enterprise server and high-performance workstation markets, while retaining device-level backward compatibility.
Each cartridge is comprised of a rugged housing with extraction handles, security pins or latches to lock the cartridge in the host recorder, and a SCSI interface to the host recorder system.
With an ultra320 SCSI interface, the storage capacity of the system can be expanded to up to 876 GB.
The Ultra160 uses a SPI-3 third generation parallel SCSI interface, which adds five new features: (1) Fast-80 or a data bus speed running at 80 MHz; (2) Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC)--a common error checking protocol, which is used to ensure data integrity as a safety measure since transfer speeds were being increased, leading to the possibility of data corruption; (3) Domain Validation, which improves the robustness of the process by which different SCSI devices determine an optimal data transfer rate; (4) Quick arbitration and selection (QAS), which represents a change in the way devices determine which device has control of the SCSI bus.
Fujitsu, always maintaining its leadership in the document imaging price-versus-performance market, also announced that both the Fujitsu M4097D-VRS and Fujitsu M4099D-VRS scanners will maintain their same low price while incorporating Kofax's newest version of VRS technology and Adrenaline 650i SCSI interface boards and cables.
A LVD SCSI interface allows customers to easily connect to Gateway's rack-mounted 955, 975 or 995 servers.
