Overview

Connectivity Solution

The RocketStor 6418AS utilizes high-performance Mini-SAS connectivity to directly support up to 8 SAS/SATA hard drives or SSDs in one or RAID storage configurations. The robust and secure Mini-SAS connector delivers a maximum data transfer bandwidth of 4,800MB/s, and is an ideal solution for business or mission critical Workstations that require highly sustained storage performance.

RAID Architecture

The RocketStor 6418AS is ideal for RAID 5/6 SATA and SAS Storage Applications that require Maximum Sustained of RAID 5/6 Performance. Robust, Built-In Hardware RAID: Dedicated Hardware RAID 5/6 Engines with 512MB of DDR3 onboard cache allow the RocketStor 6418AS to work independently and minimize the RAID operation's impact on the host system or system loads impact storage performance. DV Mode Technology intelligently manages the flow of large data blocks & write-back caching to minimize latency and ensure consistent, sustained high-performance transfers for media-rich applications.

Uncompromised Storage Availability and Accessibility

The RocketStor 6418AS has integrated a series of preemptive security measures to maximize Storage uptime whenever data is needed. Redundant RAID 5 and 6 protection shields storage configurations from 1 or 2 disk failures, respectively. The RocketStor Storage Health Inspector (SHI) proactively maintains the health of arrays by examining each drive for failed sectors & Dynamically Repair/Remap on the fly to keep storage ready & able.

Robust RAID Recovery

HighPoint Hardware RAID solutions feature built-in NVRAM, which constantly tracks in-progress writes to preserve the integrity of data in the event of a drive failure or system crash, and streamline recovery procedures while minimizing downtime. Administrators can initialize or schedule RAID verification sessions that check each disk member of an array for parity consistency. If any parity related problems are found, the interface will immediately rebuild the array to ensure the integrity of your data.

Open-Box Storage Solution

The RocketStor 6418AS features an “open-box” approach to storage, which grants customers the freedom to use their choice of SAS or SATA drive from all major drive brands including HGST, Seagate, Toshiba and WDC. Customers can add drives as needed to meet the evolving performance or capacity requirements of the storage application. (click Here to read more)
The eight removable hot-swap bays support any 2.5” or 3.5” SATA / SAS Hard Drive, and up to 64TB of total storage capacity. Enterprise /NAS class drives are recommended for the RocketStor 6418AS; customers can tailor storage configurations to meet each application’s performance and budget requirements.

RAID Storage Expansion Ready

The RocketStor 6418AS provides many storage expansion options; customers can upgrade sub-terabyte single drive configurations to RAID arrays comprised of multiple 8TB hard disks, up to maximum capacity of 64TB. The RocketStor’s Configurable Online Capacity Expansion and RAID Migration allow customers to modify RAID configurations or expand existing storage while avoiding complicated, time consuming backup and restoration procedures.

Intelligent Storage Management Solution

The RocketStor 6418AS includes a user-friendly web-based management interface available for Windows, and Mac OSX operating systems. Novices and experts alike, can quickly and easily configure, monitor, maintain and troubleshoot RAID configurations and individual storage devices, all from a single, unified software suite. Advanced Management Features allow customers to configure Email notification to inform one or more users of changing storage conditions while outside of the work environment, and manage storage remotely via a local network connection.

Mac & PC Compatible: The RocketStor 6418AS was designed for maximum compatibility with today's leading operating system platforms, and can be easily integrated PCIe capable Mac workstations utilizing OS X 10.6 and later, and PC's running Windows 10, 8.1, 7, Server 2012 or 2008, FreeBSD 8.3 and later, and Linux distributions up to kernel v4.0.5.
