Seagate Speaks on IT Enterprise Storage Trends at Washington D.C.’s FOSE Technology Conference

Seagate, together with the SCSI Trade Association (STA), participated in the annual Federal Office System Expo (FOSE) in Washington D.C. this week to highlight the changes and trends in enterprise storage architectures. FOSE is the largest government-focused technology event of its kind, drawing more than 10,000 IT decision makers from local, state and national government, in addition to featuring over 400 participating organizations. FOSE’s mission is focused on helping educate federal government agencies about IT trends and technology needs.

Marty Czekalski, who serves as an Interface Architecture Initiatives Manager at Seagate in addition to being the Vice Marty CzekalskiPresident of STA, spoke at the conference with his topic: “SAS and SATA Change the Face of Enterprise Storage”. During the session, Czekalksi covered a range of subjects, from the history of the interfaces and the improvements made with the current transition to 6Gb/sec. technology, to the advantages of transitioning to small form factor drives.

In addition to speaking about how current applications and solutions can be configured to deliver optimized cost/performance benefits in both direct-attached, and network-attached storage environments, Czekalksi hinted at what was in store in the future. He spoke of the new roadmap of connectivity for 6Gb/sec technology and its extensibility to 12Gb/s with active copper and optical connections.

In what was among the best-attended sessions within the Datacenter Pavilion at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the audience certainly came away with new knowledge and much to consider for building or upgrading their enterprise-class storage systems.
