WinThusiast -> Adaptec and nStor extend SATA to SANs (8/21/2004 7:36:04 AM)

Nothing has been more exciting in storage than following the constant evolution of SATA disk drives, watching their capacity grow and prices per megabyte shrink, thus easing deployment of SATA drives in the once forbidden realm of enterprise SANs.

Although SATA drive performance and reliability are still no match for that of the more rugged SCSI and faster FC (Fibre Channel) siblings, SATA drives have improved over their parallel ATA ancestors. They are carving out a rather large deployment area that spans across transactional and reference data. Their recent adoption for entry-level solutions aimed at SMBs and remote offices from heavyweights such as EMC and Hewlett-Packard strengthens the case for SATA, especially against SCSI, at the low end of storage networking.

Western Digital has been adding diversity to the SATA landscape with product lines that significantly improve reliability and performance, such the WD Raptor and, more recently, the Caviar RAID Edition drives.
