SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a
loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The
Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot
drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on
your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for
1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees
up otherwise dead space on your motherboard.

The world's largest and most successful private cloud operations are
revolutionizing their approach to demand management.
These organizations have recognized that while self-service portals are a
component in the overall cloud architecture, these tools do not enable demand
management. In fact, in many cases the portals and end-user interfaces don't
