Serial Storage Architecture. An expanded storage adapter for multi-processor data sharing in UNIX-based computing, allowing disk connection in a high-speed loop.
A SPARCStorage Array, a collection of disks within a hardware peripheral. The SSA provides access to each of its housed disks via two ports.
Serial Storage Architecture. An architecture defining a serial physical interface and supporting protocol developed by IBM and now supported by the ANSI X3T10.1 committee. SSA supports point-to-point, loop, and multiple-ring topologies. Each node of an SSA topology can support up to 2 full duplex ports operating at 20 MBytes/sec per port. SCSI commands, data transfers, and responses are transported across an SSA topology.
Small Sample Adapter
Serial Storage Architecture is a serial data transfer standard (ANSI X3710.1).
Serial Storage Architecture: a peripheral interface from IBM whose ring configuration allows remaining devices to function if one fails. SCSI software can be mapped over SSA allowing existing SCSI devices to be used.
A serial loop attachment technology that permits as many as 96 disks per adapter to be configured on IBM’s Rs/6000 server platform.
Serial Storage Architecture. A high-speed method of connecting disk, tape and CD-ROM drives, printers, scanners and other devices to a computer.
Serial Storage Architecture. An open storage interface for network computing enabling simultaneous communication between multiple devices.
