Description

This Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) online training course covers the architecture and components of SAS. The course provides an introductory module showing why serial protocols are required for true high speed communications and discusses the equipment necessary to test, validate and troubleshoot SAS. You will investigate the function and interaction of each SAS protocol layer, illustrating how SAS addresses the issues interference suppression, initialization techniques, resets, encoding methods, speed negotiation and clock skew management.

You will also have an introduction of SAS expanders, multiplexing techniques and zoning to demonstrate how SAS enhances scalability and improves performance. Through STP, SAS interoperation with existing SATA storage environments is explored. Demonstrations with SAS analyzer software are used throughout the course to illustrate the behavior and performance of SAS.

Prerequisites

This SAS course is intended for hardware, software and validation engineers who are involved with designing, troubleshooting and validating SAS based products.

Additionally, the online training is beneficial to managers, systems engineers and technicians who are responsible for integration of SAS devices. Attendees are expected to have a good understanding of serial communications techniques and storage network methodologies.

Objectives

As a result of taking this SAS online course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the architecture of SAS and its components
  • Explain the operation of serial protocols and frame based transmission methods
  • Compare and contrast the features and benefits of SAS with SCSI, SATA, ATA and Fibre Channel architectures
  • Be aware how of the concepts of ports, connections, data paths and links are used in SAS architectures
  • Discuss SAS transmitter and receiver characteristics, jitter tolerance and cable and connector options
  • Investigate the role of expanders, expander types, their operation and routing and arbitration methods used in SAS and SATA environments
  • Examine in detail the function and interaction of all SAS protocol layers including initialization procedures, management services, error handling, flow control and physical layer encoding methods
  • Explore in depth the use of SAS specific primitives, addressing schemes, speed negotiation and Phy reset sequences
  • Develop an understanding of the operation of SMP, SSP, STP protocols in SAS and SATA applications
  • Acquire testing and troubleshooting skills with a serial protocol analyzer
