Emulex touts a storage threesome: Fibre Channel, SAS and SATA, all in one chip

Storage consolidation and tiering could get a boost with Emulex's development of a chip that supports all three of the current disk drive favourites - SATA, SAS and Fibre Channel, plus RAID 5 or 6.

The company claimed that its IOP 502M chip should bring cheaper storage arrays, and allow today's SANs, most of which are Fibre Channel-based, to make greater use of new SAS and SATA technology.
