What is a SAS Interface?
SAS is a short form of Serial Attached SCSI and it refers to hard drives equipped with point-to-point serial protocol that moves data to and from computer storage devices. SAS interface therefore are connectors that will connect server motherboard (system board) with the hard drives. SAS hard drives are mainly used for enterprise computing where high speed and high reliability are crucial such as data center, transactional processing applications, servers, raid storage, and e-commerce. SAS drives are engineered to withstand 24/7 use of enterprise data center.
Why Purchase Dell Genuine Hard Drives?
Since most SAS Hard drives are used in servers, storage, and raid arrays, it is critical that drives used in these equipment are certified by the manufacturer. If you are running a Dell server or storage system, it's vital that you purchase Dell certified drives to ensure 24/7 connectivity between the raid controller in the Dell server and the hard drive. Dell RAID controllers and Dell Hard drives have Dell firmware that will enable these two components to function properly.
SAS V/s SATA Hard Drives?
SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) and SATA (Serial ATA) are two types of hard drives that are commonly used in servers and computers. Here are the main differences between SAS and SATA hard drives:
- Performance: SAS drives are designed for high-performance applications, such as servers and enterprise storage systems, where fast data transfer rates and high reliability are critical. SATA drives, on the other hand, are typically used in desktops, laptops, and consumer-grade storage devices where performance is not as critical.
- Speed: SAS drives have faster data transfer rates than SATA drives. SAS drives typically have rotational speeds of 10,000 or 15,000 RPM, while SATA drives typically have speeds of 5,400, 5,900 (Surveillance Drives) or 7,200 (Some consumer and Most Enterprise-Grade drives) RPM. RPM stands for rotations per minute
- Reliability: SAS drives are designed for high reliability and have a longer lifespan than SATA drives. SAS drives use enterprise-grade components and have advanced error correction and error recovery capabilities, making them more resistant to data corruption and drive failures. Please note that Enterprise Systems are required to be online 24x7x365 hence SAS-drives are designed to be powered on continuously unlike regular desktop or laptops are typically turned on and off multiple times.
- Price: SAS drives are typically more expensive than SATA drives due to their higher performance, reliability, and enterprise-grade features.
- Compatibility: SAS and SATA drives are not interchangeable, as they use different connectors and protocols. SAS drives use a SAS interface and require a SAS controller, while SATA drives use a SATA interface and can be connected to a SATA controller or motherboard.
In summary, SAS drives are designed for high-performance, high-reliability applications, while SATA drives are more commonly used in consumer-grade devices and offer a more affordable storage solution.
