It was a rising star in data storage. The technology promised new data speeds for desktop and laptop PCs, pencil-thin cables and power-thrifty electrical designs that would spawn a generation of smaller, cooler-running systems, and a price point that would drive down the cost of storage in enterprise environments. Designed as a replacement for ATA, the technology would be widely used in home and office PCs and stood to replace the venerable SCSI in an increasing number of workstations and entry-level servers. Eventually, some pundits predicted, it would pack enough performance and reliability to displace SCSI as the mainstay for enterprise computing.
