These cables are significantly narrower with far fewer pins than SCSI cabling, and are keyed to prevent being inserted into SATA drives or controllers, which makes it easier for vendors to manage server airflow and cooling issues.
The external versions of these cables are much smaller and cheaper than older parallel SCSI cables, and incorporate the same plug specification as InfiniBand, which was chosen due to the available overhead in the specification and the accessibility of cabling.
