SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) will be used in enterprise storage device servers and is the next generation of SCSI interfaces. SAS uses serial connectivity for better performance, scalability and reliability. SAS will be backwards compatible with SATA. It allows SAS to offer customers greater flexibility in system configuration for a reduced overall cost. SAS provides high-end, enterprise features as well as the ability scale down to support low-end, desktop storage media devices (Serial ATA).
