Development tools enable Kinetic Open Storage-based systems
Update Time: 2019-12-20 03:43:31
Seagate Technology plc delivered two new development tools related to its Kinetic Open Storage platform— the Seagate Kinetic Ethernet Drive interface and the Seagate -Card development adapter. Both tools have been accepted by the Open Compute Foundation as important open standards available to Open Compute Project (OCP) solution providers and system builders. Both Seagate Kinetic drive connector specifications will enable the OCP community to design, test, and deliver applications and system designs built upon the Kinetic Open Storage platform. According to the company:
- The Seagate Kinetic Ethernet Drive interface enables solution providers to transition existing SAS or SATA based chassis designs to systems by replacing conventional HDD SATA or SAS backplanes with Ethernet backplanes.
- The platform’s T-Card development adapter enables software developers to write and pre-test applications by communicating over the connectors to Kinetic Open Storage hard drives.
- Both specifications are designed to conform to the dimensions, specifications, power signal assignments, and physical placement of industry standard SAS drives.
