Xyratex has introduced 12Gb/s SAS technology into its OneStor line of enterprise-class modular storage enclosures. This industry-first technology doubles the data transfer speed between the storage enclosure and the host server, significantly increasing the performance of I/O and bandwidth intensive applications. The Xyratex OneStor line can now support 12Gb/s SAS EBODs and 12Gb/s host connectivity, which permits a theoretical maximum I/O bandwidth of 28.8GB/s from SAS hosts to the installed disk drives in 2U12, 2U24, 4U24 and 5U84 storage enclosures.
