SATA And Solid State Storage Drives

The advantages of Solid State Storage Drives (SSDs) are dealt with on a separate page. This page is about ways to connect SSDs. Probably the greatest benefit a SSD can give is in a data center, where speed is of the essence but reliability and a long MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) is also extremely important.

The Impact Of Latency

SATA Release 4.0 has been discussed but may never happen. There is a growing realization that what may eventually bring about the demise of SATA is not failure to introduce an even faster data transmission rate but the latency that is inescapable with SATA. Latency may be thought of as simply delay. In fact, it

Plugfests Lead To More Interoperability

SATA-IO lays down specifications that all SATA devices must follow. There are various other bodies, committees and sub-committees; it’s SATA-IO that manufacturers turn to to be certain what they should be making, and users turn to to be certain that a device will be compatible. Plugfests (also known as plugtests or plug tests) are one

A Revision Marks A Change Of Speed

The speed of a SATA connection is quoted in Arabic numerals (e.g. 150 MB/s). The Roman numerals following a SATA level represent the revision number. So SATA I.0 and SATA III.0 are, respectively, the first and third revisions of the standard. A number of things changed between each revision, but the most obvious change to
