Abstract: 

SCSI continues to be the backbone of enterprise storage deployments and continues to rapidly evolve by adding new features, capabilities, and performance enhancements. This presentation includes an up-to-the-minute recap of the latest additions to the SAS standard and road maps, the status of 12Gb/s SAS deployment, advanced connectivity solutions, MultiLink SAS™, SCSI Express, and 24Gb/s development. Presenters will also provide updates on new SCSI features such as atomic writes, Zoned Block Commands (ZBC) and Storage Intelligence which provides mechanisms for improved efficiency, performance and endurance with solid state devices.

Learning Objectives

Attendees will learn how SAS continues to grow and thrive, in part, because of the Advanced Connectivity Roadmap, which offers a solid connectivity scheme based on the versatile Mini-SAS HD connector
The latest development status and design guidelines for 12Gb/s SAS will be discussed as well current status for extending SAS to 24Gb/s.
Attendees will receive updates on new SCSI feature such as atomic writes, Zoned Block Commands and Storage Intelligence which provides mechanisms for improved efficiency, performance and endurance wit
