Microchip Technology and Kioxia America Inc. have successfully tested what they claim is the first 24G SAS end-to-end storage interoperability testing.

24G SAS infrastructure delivers improved performance over standard storage as well as security and reliability for data centers, hyperscale and enterprise server/storage customers.

The tests show that Microchip’s 24G SAS products and Kioxia’s 24G SAS solid state drives (SSDs) can be used for next-generation storage and paves the way for a broad industry deployment of the technology.

Microchip tested its SmartROC 3200 PCIe Gen4 tri-mode RAID on chip controller, the SmartIOC 2200 input/output controller and the SXP 24G SAS expander.

The companies claim the 24G SAS technology doubles the storage interconnect bandwidth of the prior SAS standard, eliminates bottlenecks at the CPU host interface and allows for use of both new and legacy storage infrastructure.
