Maximize SATA Value with SAS Controllers

Remarkable cost-effectiveness has always been the hallmark of Serial ATA (SATA) disk drives, and recent improvements in performance (3Gb/s) and available capacity (up to 750GB) have only reinforced SATA?s stature as the unrivalled leader in storage efficiency. Of course, SATA drives don?t exist in a vacuum, and deploying them within the optimal infrastructure is key to achieving maximum SATA value. The Adaptec Unified Serial?
