We're excited to be launching our range of Supermicro based 12GBs SAS-3 server solutions. These systems will be available over both our PowerServe® and PowerStore® range, so can be used for a variety of uses, such as traditional servers, or for storage using our range of storage/SAN software solutions.
12GBs SAS is currently only available for SSD's, as hard drives cannot perform fast enough. There is only a small number of SSD's on the market at the moment, but we will be linking in on our configurable 12GBs SAS models a range of suitable SSD's.
There's a few things to remember about 12GBs SAS. You must use a 12GBs SAS controller with a 12GBs SAS Backplane. You can't go for a 12GBs SAS controller and use it with an 6Gbps SATA/SAS backplane, and visa-versa, you can't use a 12GBs SAS backplane with a 6Gbps SATA/SAS controller. However, as long as both the controller and backplane are correct you can use previous generation drives, such as 3Gbps and 6Gbps SATA/SAS. This gives excellent upgrade potential, as it allows customers to invest in a 12GBs capable system, and use more (current) cost-effective 6Gbps SSD's and Hard Drives.
Below is quick chart for the benefits of 12GBs compared to current/existing SATA/SAS speeds.

Did you know we have one of the largest catalogues of systems available for customisation online?
We have over 60 models of rack and tower servers for easy configuration online using our intelligent configurator. Our range includes 1U through to 5U systems suitable for many purposes, such as VoIP, Web Servers, Cloud Servers and Virtualisation.
We have created two types of servers;
Our PowerServe® range covers any general type of server. We’ve designed these to be multi-purpose, so can run various software and go into pretty much any installation. They can be used for standalone, clustered or even as storage server systems.
Our PowerStore® range of servers are specially designed high capacity storage servers. These are generally larger sized systems, from 4U Rack onwards and intended for file server or local SAN storage application. These systems come with high capacity storage potential, from 24x bays upwards, multi-Gigabit LAN connectivity and plenty of internal expansion potential for adding in SAN based cards such as Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, iSCSI and Ethernet. These systems can also be connected to external JBOD enclosures for additional storage.
