Valley Home, (PressExposure) July 26, 2013 -- FiberStore Co., Ltd has launched the MiniSAS SFFP-8088 to SFFP-8088 cables series which is designed for high performance networks, servers, workstations and desktops. This durable SAS cable features an External mini-SAS (SFF-8088) connector and an External mini-SAS (SFF-8088) connector, and supports data transfer rates of up to 6 Gbps.
As you might expect, the more lanes the faster speed, Mini-SAS is like traffic moving on 4 lanes on the highway instead of just 1 lane. Mini-SAS offers more "Lanes" for data to travel, providing the ability to reach higher speeds. Just like the SATA/eSATA interface, mini-SAS offers the convenience of a one cable connection. However, in a multi-drive SATA/eSATA solution which, only offers one lane for four drives to send/receive data on, mini-SAS provides four separate lanes so each drive can deliver its maximum capable data transfer rate.
Now you can use one or more mini-SAS equipped external storage enclosures like the OWC Mercury Rack Pro for greater speed, protection, or both compared to single channel multi-drive eSATA RAID or eSATA Port Multiplier solutions.
"This durable SAS cable features an SFF-8088 (external mini-SAS) connector, and supports data transfer rates of up to 6 Gbps." comments Thorndike, FiberStore product manager. "Unlike SFF-8087, where the top cards often have four or six connectors, SFF-8088 usually comes with only one or two connectors per controller. This is because a single SFF-8088 connector on a SAS Expander-enabled controller can connect to a large SAS Expander-enable enclosure, which can then be daisy-chained."
The SFF-8088 cables are currently available in 6 Gbs external or 3 Gbs internal and far-out assembly types. SFF-8088 with power are also in stock. Custom Mini-SAS cables are available in various lengths and other options. Contact for more information by calling 86-755-83003611, email email@example.com, or visit http://www.fiberstore.com.
