Web hosting technology keeps developing at anytime. We’ll be left behind if we don’t keep track on it as the progress moves fast. New and old technologies come and go. One of the most popular and the latest IT technologies nowadays is the SAS technology.

What do you know about SAS? Well, on purpose, it’s build for data center operations, to deliver an unbeatable combination of superior performance plus greater data integrity in the system level.

SAS improves drive’s addressability and connectivity by using expander, which enables one or more host controllers to connect to a large number of drives. But there are even more behind it when you explore the capabilities deeper.

Data Integrity Guaranteed

With its End-to-end IT Nexus checking, it will ensure data movement from or to drive is never misdirected. This means it eliminates the key cause of data corruption. Dual ports capability enables fail-over and data recovery in multi-host storage environments. You can feel relieved that your data is always safe at anytime.

Superior in Performance

For performance, there is no need to doubt it. Compared to SATA (Serial ATA), SAS performance is 135% over SATA. It is far greater in speed and has an enhanced RV tolerance in high-density enclosures. The performance you’ll get will be more than you ever expected.

Investment Protected

Seamless SAS connectivity is fully guaranteed. You will save money and integration costs plus reduce service complexity from having to diagnose issues through multiple components in the ecosystem. And what is better is that SAS is compatible with all existing SCSI software and middleware .

Eco-Friendly

There is even more. Being eco-friendly, it uses only 12.5 watts for operation and 9 watts idling. The PowerTrimTM technology reduces power consumption, heat, and energy costs without having to sacrifice the performance itself.

Simple and Compatible

It offers easy enterprise-level management with multi-hosts support that enables up to 16 hosts on drive queue. Seamless SAS connectivity and compatibility with existing SCSI software and middleware are also provided for your ease of use.

Additionally, It is even possible to support up to 1 Terrabyte for capacity seeker applications. You don’t have to worry of running out of resource. It is also designed for 24×7 operation nonstop and can work up to 1.2 million hours.

And last but not least, its hot-swappable drives and simple four-wire cabling make serviceability quick and easy. Reliability is fully guaranteed here. You cannot find anything better. So get it now!

Green hosting is our ticket to a more natural and healthy environment. Of course it is! This is a famous statement that we hear nowadays in the hosting industry. Everybody wants to claim themselves as a green host. Why? Being a green host will make people consider them as a noble host, doing well for a better living and environment. However, do you think they are all really a green host? To tell you the truth, there are few types of hosts calling themselves “green”.

Using Wind Power and Solar Energy

The first type of a green host is those who build data center and have servers with wind power and solar energy. They run servers with renewable energy. Also, their offices and servers use biogas, solar, wind, or geothermal energy and they also produce their own energy in house. Even further, some hosts have acquired Renewable Energy Certificate, ensuring they run eco-friendly power for their hosting business. For this one, we can really consider them as a good green host as they really use renewable energy to ensure that they keep the environment safe. Moreover, of course that means a good green hosting costs more expensively than the regular hosting.

Tree Planting

However, not all hosts claiming themselves as green hosts doing those stuffs as it is costly. The second type I will share with you now is those preferring to plant more trees to be considered “green”. Planting a tree to offset your carbon use sounds great; however, is there a real value out of it? Of course it is much cheaper and there is a real value somehow. I call it somehow as growing trees are not in an instance. However, it takes years or decades to really get the good effect. For hosts choosing this way, it seems that they just take the easiest and cheapest way for their own credibility.

My Point?

I am not saying that any of them is a bad idea. On the contrary, I am touched that any of us prefer to show their care to the environment where we live now and later. However, it will be very necessary that we also try to analyze whether they really do good for a better living or just try to get credibility for their own business by taking the simplest way only for them. Just look and feel.
