The base models of the Nexsan E60™ and Nexsan E48™ use: 3Gb/s SAS for internal communication between the RAID Controllers and hard disks. The V and VT variants use 6Gb/s SAS for internal communication. The VT variants also have a turbo card installed in each RAID Controller which optimizes sequential writes in parity-based RAIDs. There is no upgrade path between the base models and either the V or VT variants. Aside from the difference in internal communication speed and the presence of the turbo card in the VT units, there is no operational difference between the base models and either the V or VT variants.
