6Gb/s SAS
SAS (Serial-attached SCSI) is a new serial interface for SCSI. Compared to the traditional parallel interface, this can achieve higher data-transfer rates. Systems comprising SAS HDDs can be connected to SATA HDDs. SAS-2 is the latest interface standard. 6Gb/s SAS is based on the SAS-2 specification, and extends the data-transfer rates from previous 3Gb/s SAS to 6Gb/s (600MB/s).
