Off the top of my head, I don't believe we do publish the SAS backend speed details.

BIgger question is: Why do you care?
There are no commands to interface a host with the SAS backend. And the Nimble HF40 is cache-centric. The Nimble does not write to disks the way most disk arrays do. Take a look at this YouTube video on Nimble CASL - Tour HPE Nimble Storage CASL - Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout file system.

I'd suggest you talk to your sales person about what sort of performance you should expect from an HF40 with your particular workload(s).

Note: While I am an HPE Employee, all of my comments (whether noted or not), are my own and are not any official representation of the company
