The high-performance storage interface, which now accounts for a majority of hard drives sold, is opening up new opportunites, as well as challenges.

 Sometime in the third quarter of 2006, Serial ATA became the dominant storage interface, accounting for more than half of all drives sold in that time period, and for an overwhelming majority of total disk storage in terms of raw gigabytes. Moreover, SATA has become the primary storage interface for most new systems, with Parallel ATA, or IDE, drives and interfaces being relegated to "legacy" and non-PC uses (such as media systems and gaming consoles), while SCSI's dominance over enterprise servers and storage systems is also being challenged like never before... more.
