S - Definitions

  • S

    SAN file system

    A SAN file system (that is, a storage area network file system) is programming that enables the sharing of the same copies of files stored on common storage media among multiple servers that may have different operating systems.

  • SAN island

    A SAN island is a storage area network (SAN) that exists as a discrete, isolated entity within a larger SAN. The components of a SAN island are usually all located in the same building, or even within a single room.

  • SAN routing

    SAN (storage area network) routing is a technology used for interconnecting SAN islands (separately designated logical portions of a storage area network) within a larger network.

  • SAN switch (storage area network switch)

    A storage area network (SAN) switch is a device that connects servers and shared pools of storage devices and is dedicated to moving storage traffic.

  • SATA controller

    A SATA controller handles how hard drives are connected to a computer's motherboard.

  • SATA Express (SATAe)

    SATA Express (SATAe or Serial ATA Express) is a section within the SATA v3.2 specification that defines connectors for host and device connectors that support SATA and PCI Express (PCIe) protocols simultaneously.

  • SCSI (Small Computer System Interface)

    Definition: The Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) is a set of parallel interface standards used to attach disk drives and other peripherals to a computer.

  • SCSI controller (Small Computer System Interface controller)

    A SCSI controller, also called a host bus adapter (HBA), is a card or chip that allows a SCSI storage device to communicate with the operating system across a SCSI bus.

  • secondary storage

    Secondary storage is used to protect inactive data written from a primary storage array to a nonvolatile tier of disk, flash or tape.

  • sector

    On a computer diskette or hard disk, a sector is one of the "pie slices" the diskette or disk is divided into.

  • Secure Digital card (SD card)

    SD cards use flash memory to provide nonvolatile storage. They are more rugged than traditional storage media and are used in more portable storage media.

  • SerDes (serializer/deserializer)

    A SerDes or serializer/deserializer is an integrated circuit (IC or chip) transceiver that converts parallel data to serial data and vice-versa.

  • Serial ATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment or SATA)

    The SATA storage protocol transmits data in serial fashion between hard drives and computer systems. The nonprofit SATA-IO industry consortium authors the design specification.

  • Serial Storage Architecture (SSA)

    Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) is an open standard for high-speed access to high-capacity disk storage.

  • serial-attached SCSI (SAS)

    Serial-attached SCSI (SAS) is a point-to-point protocol used to transfer digital data between servers and SAS storage devices.
