- Delivers improved performance, security and reliability to data centre, cloud, hyperscale and enterprise server/storage
- 24G SAS standard enhances the storage interconnect bandwidth of the prior SAS standard and allows efficient use of both new and legacy storage infrastructure
Microchip Technology and KIOXIA America (formerly Toshiba Memory America) have announced the successful completion of the 24G SAS End-to-End Storage interoperability testing. Industry-standard 24G SAS Infrastructure delivers improved performance, security and reliability to data centre, cloud, hyperscale and enterprise server/storage customers.
This interoperability testing demonstrates that Microchip’s suite of 24G SAS products and KIOXIA 24G SAS Solid-State Drives (SSDs) can be utilized together as part of next-generation storage solutions. Microchip’s 24G SAS tested products include the SmartROC 3200 PCIe Gen 4 Tri-Mode RAID On Chip (ROC) Controller, the SmartIOC 2200 Input/Output Controller (IOC) and the SXP 24G SAS expander. New server and storage systems can be deployed by utilizing these proven components for increasing system performance while maintaining backward compatibility with existing infrastructure.
Developed to complement the latest PCIe Gen 4 data centre input/output (I/O) specifications, the 24G SAS (SAS-4/SPL-5) standard doubles the storage interconnect bandwidth of the prior SAS standard, eliminates bottlenecks at the CPU host interface and allows more efficient use of both new and legacy storage infrastructure. 24G SAS includes robust Forward Error Correction (FEC) that supports the broad range of enterprise-quality server/storage use cases while minimizing system costs.
