- RocketRAID 2840A: professional Class SAS 6Gb/s PCIe 3.0 RAID solutions
RocketRAID 2840A host bus adapters capitalize on HighPoint's two decades of RAID and storage technology to deliver professional grade RAID storage at a fraction of the cost of conventional host RAID solutions. Each adapter is powered by industry proven RAID technology, superior Gen 3.0 PCIe express transfer bandwidth, and up to sixteen dedicated 6Gb/s SAS channels, which support robust, high-performance RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 1/0, 5/0 and JBOD configurations of SAS or SATA hard drives of any disk format, including 512, 512e and 4Kn.
- Seamlessly upgrade RAID Storage
RocketRAID 2840A adapters deliver an unprecedented level of flexibility when it comes to storage configurations. Customers are free to expand or convert RAID storage configurations as needed to keep on top of the evolving demands of the storage application, without sacrificing existing data. Online Capacity Expansion (OCE) allows administrators to add new drives to existing arrays in order to expand available capacity. Online RAID Level Migration (ORLM) allows administrators to convert one RAID level to another in order to tune storage configurations for maximum performance or data security.
- Multi-HBA solution
HighPoint's multi-HBA (host bus adapter) Non-RAID solution software packages are available for all major operating system platforms including Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X. The RocketRAID 2840A device driver enables up to four independent cards to work in unison, and effectively function as a single 64-channel 6G SAS host controller. This innovative approach to direct-attached mass storage connectivity allows customers to simplify the build process, streamline maintenance procedures, and provides dedicated SAS 6Gb/s point-to-point bandwidth for each connected device. The robust, versatile, device driver allows administrators to keep tabs on the operational status of each card and individual storage device via the RocketRAID 2840A's intuitive web-based management interface.
