LSI Delivers 6-Gig SAS

DALLAS -- LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced significant extensions to its SAS portfolio with the introduction of the industrys first 6Gb/s SAS-to-SATA bridge cards and a 16-port SAS storage processor. The new 6Gb/s SAS components for external storage applications extend the industry’s broadest portfolio of SAS solutions. Major OEMs are sampling the new 6Gb/s SAS products to gain a time-to-market advantage for the deployment of next-generation SAS infrastructure solutions.

The new 6Gb/s SAS-to-SATA bridge cards allow SAS capabilities to be seamlessly added to existing SATA disk drives. The cards enhance SATA drives with essential enterprise-class features, providing OEMs with a complete turnkey solution for interconnecting low-cost, high capacity SATA drives into enterprise storage solutions – without sacrificing reliability, manageability or data availability.

“The cost and capacity benefits of SATA drives are well known, but deployment in enterprise storage environments has been limited due to scaling and reliability concerns,” said Steve Fingerhut, senior director of marketing, Storage Components Group, LSI. “With today’s announcement, LSI is supplying OEMs with a first-to-market solution for increasing storage system capacity at a lower cost, using OEM customers’ robust, scalable SAS infrastructure.”
