The Small Computer Systems Interface (SCSI) has been and will continue to be one of the most flexible and powerful means of communicating information between peripheral and computer

SCSI: Gets the Job Done

SCSI is a system level interface and as such it uses high level commands, and logical block addressing. This considerably simplifies the task of the device driver and saves CPU time on every single I/O. Moreover, because the SCSI device does operations like 'rewind the tape' or 'format this disk' without host intervvention, the host saves even more CPU time. Especially multitasking operating systems like Unix, Windows NT, OS/2, Novell Netware and Windows 95/98 benefit from SCSI's intelligence.

State-of-the-Art SCSI, keeps going and going!
