NetApp is moving towards 12Gbps SAS or SAS-3 connectivity for disk shelves. DS224C shelves with IOM12 (12Gbps SAS) modules have been available for a while and now new generation controllers have onboard 12Gbps SAS ports as well separate 12Gbps capable SAS adapters.
Updated cable end shapes for SAS 6Gbps and ACP cable shapes
First iteration of transitional SAS cable Visio shapes looked odd to me, one end of the cable contained “12G” speed indication, while the other one was just empty shape without additional information, so I’ve changed the older cable end shapes to contain speed indication as well “6G”. This led to need for updated cable ends for older SAS 6Gbps cables as well.
