Top 3 Reasons To Consider SAS Over SATA For Solid-State Storage
Modern data centers have more performance requirements than before and as virtualization and cloud computing become increasingly popular, there is a need for levels of IOPS performance and data transfer rates that go beyond the capabilities of traditional hard disk drives (HDDs). Therefore, IT departments are turning to solid-state drives (SSDs). These IT professionals have a lot to consider when choosing an SSD solution, including performance, price and reliability. Another important consideration is whether to deploy drives that are built on the SAS interface or the SATA interface.
This expert e-guide provides the top three reasons to consider SAS over SATA for solid-state storage. If you’re in the market for an SSD solution, or have been considering making the switch, read on to learn more about SAS benefits, such as:
- End-to-end data protection
- Fast transfer rates
- Wide ports
- And more!
