Case Study: Intel and SATA3

Scaling Storage with SATA

In 1999, physical storage technology was reaching an impasse. The existing parallel ATA (PATA) interface was no longer keeping pace with new storage products and new silicon process technology. Lack of performance headroom, cabling issues, and voltage tolerance requirements were becoming critical. Without new interface technology, physical storage would become a bottleneck on computing performance, despite advances in other areas.

To address the challenge, Intel joined with other industry leaders to create the standard for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA), a storage interface designed for faster, more efficient transfer of data between a computer and storage device. Designed with backward software compatibility and with a clear roadmap for future improvements, SATA technology is now in its third incarnation–the SATA Release 3.0 specification was released in May 2009. According to IDC analyst John Rydning, “The SATA interface has developed into the de facto hard disk drive interface in computing applications.”
