    Fibre Channel, fire-wire, or USB-attached disks are also available storage options. They define either the transport bus or the disk type. For example, USB-attached disks use mostly with SATA or SSD drives to store data.

    The IEEE 1394 interface is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and isochronous real-time data transfer. It was developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s by Apple, who called it FireWire. The 1394 interface is comparable to USB though USB has more market share. Apple first included FireWire in some of its 1999 models, and most Apple computers since the year 2000 have included FireWire ports, though, as of 2014[update], it only remains as interface on the Mac Mini-model, being replaced by the Thunderbolt-interface on all other Mac-models. The interface is also known by the brand i.LINK (Sony), and Lynx. IEEE 1394 replaced parallel SCSI in many applications, because of lower implementation costs and a simplified, more adaptable cabling system. The 1394 standard also defines a backplane interface, though this is not as widely used.
    IEEE 1394 is the High-Definition Audio-Video Network Alliance (HANA) standard connection interface for A/V (audio/visual) component communication and control. FireWire is also available in wireless, fiber optic, and coaxial versions using the isochronous protocols.

    No debe traducirlo, porque es una marca registrada, no un nombre común.
