The 12 Gbps SAS-switch Astek A54812-SW seamlessly connect multiple servers and SAS storage arrays

The Astek SAS switch extends the capabilities of SAS in Direct Attached Storage (DAS) environments to an actual enterprise infrastructure. By providing an interconnect from multiple servers to one or more external storage systems, the SAS Switch enables medium-sized businesses to take advantage of a cost-effective and scalable high-performance storage network.

The Astek SAS switch allows the construction of a micro-fabric where multiple servers are able to share one or more storage devices. Through the use of zoning, multiple storage domains can be configured. He offers also complete management through SAS Domain Manager Graphical User Interface (SDM-GUI). The SDM-GUI is able to modify port configuration including zoning, firmware management, and viewing the topology of the SAS domain.

As the SAS physical layer supports both SAS and Serial ATA (SATA), the SAS Switch enables a single switching infrastructure that addresses multiple classes of storage by supporting a mix of SAS and SATA drives.

A single SAS Switch can be used in a normal configuration, or two switches can be configured for a High Availability (HA) application where both ports of the storage are connected using redundant paths. If one of the switches falls, the second one will continue normal operation
