Legacy SAS and SATA drives may not be fit for Tier 0 duty, but, when matched with a cost-appropriate infrastructure, they can still offer many more useful years of service. The LSI SAS 1068 provides ample storage connectivity for PCI-X-based subsystems and servers while integrating features to extend existing SCSI investments and lower data risks.
