UAS Performance Boost

RocketU HBA’s can deliver even higher levels of performance when paired with UAS capable storage devices, such as RocketStor USB 3.x Storage Docks. The speed and efficiency advantages provided by UAS technology are ideal for multi-tasking and performance-hungry applications.

 

UAS (USB Attached SCSI) is a computer protocol that is used to transfer data to and from USB storage devices. UAS is dependent on the USB protocol, and utilizes the standard SCSI command set.

Unlike the slower queue system of BOT (Bulk Only Transport), which only provides single-task commands; each task must complete before the next begins, UAS offers maximized bandwidth utilization, and can handle multiple data transfer requests simultaneously. As a result, USB 3.2 connections working in UASP mode result in higher transfer speeds and lower CPU utilization. UAS clears data queues faster, which results in smoother-operating PC’s.
