Q

Explaining DAS

Could you explain DAS? I need information about the history of storage.

Could you help me?


DAS is storage that is connected with a bus of some kind. SCSI and ATA are the most common buses in use today. Get a copy of my book "Building Storage Networks, Second Edition" and read the sections on SCSI -- it's not a lot but there isn't a lot published in books on the subject. My book does not cover much on ATA either.

There is more to this than I can write here.
