Serial ATA is a disk-interface technology developed by a group of the industry's leading vendors to replace parallel ATA. Serial ATA is a point-to-point connection and allows multiple ports to be aggregated into a single controller that is typically located either on the motherboard or as an add-in, RAID card. Through backplanes and external enclosures, Serial ATA will be deployed in high-capacity server and networked-storage environments. It was created, with desktop prices in mind, It specifies a thin, point-to-point connection which allows for easy cable routing within a system. This avoids master/slave, "daisy-chaining", and termination issues. Also, better airflow can be realized compared to systems with wider ribbon cables. Serial ATA technology will deliver 1.5 Gbps (150 MB/sec) of performance to each drive within a disk drive array.
