Backup Software / Backup Terms Glossary / Storage Media / SATA
SATA, is short for Serial ATA. SATA 1.0 was first released in August 2001 and is a replacement for the Parallel ATA interface used in IBM compatible computers. Serial ATA is capable of delivering 1.5Gbps (150MBps) of performance to each drive within a disk array, offers backwards compatibility for existing ATA and ATAPI devices, and offers a thin, small cable solution as seen in the picture to the left. This cable helps make a much easier cable routing and offers better airflow in the computer when compared to the earlier ribbon cables used with ATA drives.
In addition to being an internal solution SATA also supports external drives through External SATA more commonly known as eSATA. eSATA offers many more advantages when compared to to other solutions, for example it is hot-swappable, supports faster transfer speeds and no bottleneck issues when compared with other popular external solutions such as USB and Firewire, and supports disk drive technologies such as S.M.A.R.T..
