Let's get back to the "cheap drive" stigma of the ATA
For the majority, Intelligent ATA
delivers the performance and reliability currently not satisfied by tape, standalone Serial ATA
, or even modular Fibre Channel solutions.
New Applications are Driving the Use of ATA
Disks Into the Data Center
Through the combination of ATA
economics and integration into the high-availability CLARiiON architecture, EMC now makes it possible for customers to bring more information online.
The benefit is obvious: with a RAID system built using ATA
drives and one of these new controllers, the file server thinks it's interfacing to a SCSI device, and derives all the benefits of SCSI RAID, but at a much lower cost.
Controller is available now in a 14 mm x 14 mm 100-pin TQFP package in both commercial and industrial temperature grades, and is priced at $5.
SERIAL BUS ARCHITECTURE: Ultra ATA
While maintaining compatibility with today's software, Serial ATA
will provide a storage interface that meets the needs of tomorrow's computers and links emerging system and storage technologies.
is handicapped by its inability to support hot-plug drives.
Serial-Attached SCSI combines the enterprise features of Parallel SCSI and Fibre Channel with the efficiencies of the Serial ATA
