City of Industry, CA - October 4, 2012 - Sans Digital, a leading provider of high performance storage subsystems, is releasing a new line of single-bay enclosures featuring eSATA, FireWire 800, and USB 3.0 capable of fast USB Attached SCSI Protocol (UASP) (via firmware update in November). Many storage enclosures in the market today support USB 3.0 interface; however, when pinned against a real world environment, USB 3.0 never seem to operate at its true bandwidth at 5 Gb/s transfer rates until now. Not all USB 3.0-based solutions are created equal. USB Attached SCSI is a newly developed USB 3.0 protocol that replaces the older USB 2.0 BOT protocol providing efficient data transfers at true USB 3.0 performance. UASP helps to completely make use of USB 3.0's high-speed possibilities by implementing features such as Four-Pipe Model and Command queuing. These architectural changes to USB 3.0, allows for multi-threading and paralleling data which eliminates the hand shake approach for transferring the next block of data. These new architectures take USB 3.0 to the next level in performance and ingenuity and will allow users to take advantage of USB 3.0’s true performance potential on both the MobileSTOR and TowerSTOR enclosures and on the host.
The new single-bay Sans Digital models that will take advantage of the UASP feature are the TowerSTOR TS1UT+B (Black Finish with eSATA and USB 3.0) and the TS1CT+ (Silver Finish with eSATA, FW800, and USB3.0). For users looking for the convenience of swapping out the hard drives on the fly (build-in hot-swappable tray), the new MobileSTOR MS1UT+B (Black Finish with USB3.0 and eSATA) and the MS1CT+ (Silver Finish with eSATA, USB 3.0, and FW800) comes with hot-swappable 3.5” inch hard drive trays which will allow users to change hard drives even while powered on. They are also interchangeable with certain MobileSTOR or MobileRAID series models to provide ultimate compatibility between various units. The TS1CT+, TS1UT+B, MS1CT+, and MS1UT+B, all feature a combination of fanless design and aluminum housing providing quiet yet cool operation. With portability in mind, the compact all models are weight only 2.2 lbs. With the support of high performance Super Speed USB 3.0 Interface (5Gb/s) with UASP, as well as eSATA 6G support and FW 800, the MobileSTOR and TowerSTOR products provide the best performance in the market and is an ideal personal storage for creative professional and personal backup.
“Sans Digital’s newest single bay drive storage solutions together with USB 3.0 new UASP, offers improved performance able to meet today’s consumer needs.” said Stanley Chan, Director of Business Development. “For more information on the newest MobileSTOR and TowerSTOR single bay products, please visit the following web link http://www.sansdigital.com
