Retiring SAS storage grade in BigV

We’ve decided to retire the “SAS” storage grade in BigV; taking the list of available grades to archive, sata and ssd.

We’ll get a new client release out soon without the sas option and update the documentation accordingly. The change is being made due to improvements in the performance of the SATA grade that make the SAS one a poor option by comparison; if you’ve already got discs with SAS, we’ll be getting in touch to discuss options over the next few days. SATA is now faster – and cheaper – so do get in touch if you’d like to arrange a regrade proactively. It’s zero-downtime, of course.
