April 2015 - New Systems with 12Gb SAS3 Drive Support Available

Infortrend DS 3000 Series Family

SuperMicro releases new Servers and Storage Solutions that support the new SAS3 (12Gb) drives coming to market over the last 3 months. The SAS3 doubles the bandwidth of SAS2 (6Gb) that we have used in the Market for the last 3+ years. The increased Bandwidth will benefit performance hungry solutions that were hitting a wall with the SAS2 buss interface.

The new SAS3 transfer speeds on just a single disk or many disk, will greatly benefit users across the Industry. Many of the major Drive Manufactures such as Hitachi, Seagate and Toshiba already have drive models available using SAS3 on SAS, NL-SAS and SSD Drives.
