busses on the bridges can theoretically handle up to 15 drives per bus.
While parallel SCSI
limited users to 15 drives per controller, SAS architecture supports up to 16,384 connections for much greater scalability.
As you can see, SCSI
clearly outperforms the other two types of drives, but it should be noted that when implemented in a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) environment, differences in individual drive parameters become much less pronounced as even lower performance drives can saturate the data bus and other system components.
JMR also manufactures the widest selection of SCSI
solutions in its USA-based ISO 9001 facilities.
Major workstation and server manufacturers have adopted Adaptec's Ultra160 SCSI
technology as the industry's foundation for this rapidly adopted storage connectivity standard.
It has since been working to narrow the distance constraints separating SCSI
(six meters) and FiberChannel (10 km).
Now, a double-speed writer/playback CD-R, with recorder software and a SCSI
interface, can be had for as little as $3,500.
Finally, in frustration, the accountant calls in an independent computer consultant who takes one look at the setup and says, "You need a SCSI
(pronounced scuzzy) board." (SCSI
is an acronym for small computer system interface.
Enterprise servers have long used the standard parallel SCSI
3.5" hard disc drives for internal storage requirements.
The small computer system interface (SCSI
) standard, commonly referred to as "scuzzy," is continually evolving.
(Nasdaq:PMCS) has announced an end-to-end Serial Attached SCSI
(SAS) architectural solution for network attached and server attached tiered storage applications.

(Nasdaq:ADPT), Milpitas, Calif., has announced that its Ultra160 SCSI
technology has been selected by Hewlett Packard for its next-generation XU800 PC workstations.
The fifteen year-old SCSI
I/O interface has a new roadmap that should increase its transfer rates up to 640 Megabytes per second over the next four years, the SCSI
Trade Association announced at Winhec show in Los Angeles yesterday.
