Downloads Documentation

The LSI? SAS6160 switch significantly extends the capabilities of SAS in direct-attached storage (DAS) environments by allowing multiple servers to connect to one or more independent external storage systems. The 6Gb/s SAS switch provides a low-cost and easy-to-use storage networking option for rack-mount servers and storage installations in cloud computing, mega data center, small- to medium-size business, and virtual server environments.

By enabling storage resources to be shared across multiple hosts and managed through SAS zoning, the LSI SAS switch helps maximize storage utilization while eliminating islands of storage. It also simplifies storage management, backup, and upgrades. The SAS switch is designed from the ground up to deliver the connectivity required to support virtual server environments. It allows organizations to realize the benefits of virtual machine migration while maintaining the management simplicity of DAS.
