WD’s HGST to demo 12Gbps SAS SSD at SCSI Trade Association Technology Showcase next week in California

HGST, the Western Digital subsidiary formerly known as Hitachi Global Storage Technologies, has announced a new 12Gbps SAS SSD and will be demonstrating it at the SCSI Trade Association Technology Showcase next week on May 9 at the Hyatt Hotel in Santa Clara, California. The 12Gbps SAS interface is backward compatible with the 6Gbps SAS standard interface but boosts data throughput to a peak of 4.8Gbytes/sec on the dual-ported HGST SSD. Next week’s interoperability demo will show the HGST drive working with controllers from LSI and PMC-Sierra.

(Note: For more information on the 12Gbps SAS interface, see the Denali Memory Report blog post from last month: “Cadence adds 12Gbps SAS and NVM Express verification IP to its VIP catalog”)
