Expanders are a newer storage technology that allows you to get the most out of your SAS controller card’s storage capacity. Many SAS controllers can handle up to 128 hard discs. Only a SAS expander solution can accomplish this.
Expanders are the sole means to expand the storage capacity of a single controller card beyond 8, 12, 16, or 24 drives. Without an expander, most external port cards only have two ports and can only accommodate eight discs. Expander enclosures allow you to add more expander enclosures later by daisy-chaining them together.
In many situations, the prices are comparable to existing storage systems, but the benefits in terms of simplicity, flexibility, and futureproofing outweigh the disadvantages.
The Global Storage Expanders Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
Microsemi has introduced the SXP 24G series of devices, which are the first 24G SAS (SAS-4) expanders for server and networked storage in the industry. The storage connector’s bandwidth is doubled with 24G SAS, allowing the storage interconnect to use the entire capacity of the PCIe Gen 4 bus.
This new device family was created to address the demanding SAS storage infrastructure requirements by offering dependable, high-performance, low-power communication to SAS and SATA HDDs and SSDs inside the storage subsystem.
As bandwidth needs within the data storage architecture continue to rise, 24G SAS infrastructure is a crucial enabler for both fast SSD-based and multi-actuator hard drive systems.
