Ultra320 SCSI - Page 3
Ultra320 SCSI is sure to add to the existing legacy of past SCSI technologies.
SCSI has come a long way from its original 5MB/sec transfer rate. At 320 MB/sec,
Ultra320 SCSI is only the latest in SCSI evolution. As technology continues
to move into the 21st century, the industry can continue to look forward to
new and faster SCSI technology. Ultra640 is already in development.
With new technologies such as packetized SCSI, QAS, training and pre-comp,
SCSI will continue to deliver performance safely and reliably for generations
to come. As performance continues to grow, so will the applications that can
take full advantage of greater I/O performance. PCI-X accelerates performance
across the host bus to 1066 MB/sec and Ultra320 SCSI is there to take full advantage
of this available bandwidth.
And as always, SCSI maintains its backward compatibility allowing customers
to protect their investment while concurrently giving them the ability to grow
as their needs increase. No other I/O technology can provide these advantages.
SCSI continues to increase its performance, features, enhancements and market
share. Ultra320 SCSI is the newest example of SCSI’s continued commitment
to providing the industry with the I/O bandwidth necessary for an increasing
number of performance hungry applications. SCSI will continue to evolve and
with Ultra640 SCSI already on the roadmap, it will be impossible to replace.
