The RocketStor 6628A is ideal for professional media applications that demand uncompromised transfer performance combined with the superior data protection of hardware RAID 5 & 6.
Designed for I/O intensive multi-task workflows such as media editing and post production applications, the RocketStor 6628A is powered by our industry proven hardware RAID stack and dedicated 40Gb/s Thunderbolt™ 3 transfer bandwidth.
Each RocketStor 6628A RAID Enclosure includes our newly redesigned, easy to use web-based management utility. The built-in Array Configuration Wizard allows users of any experience level to create any type of RAID array in three easy steps; simply select your RAID level, pick your drives and go! Creating arrays has never been easier!
Optional Advanced Management Features allow customers to fine tune RAID arrays for specific projects, with options to specify block size, enable DV Mode for digital media projects, designate spare disks for recovery, and schedule routine automated maintenance sessions with Email notification to keep one abreast of changing storage conditions while outside of the work environment.
The RocketStor 6628A 2nd Generation Series Thunderbolt™ 3 RAID enclosures feature the latest iteration of HighPoint’s industry proven Hardware RAID stack, which features substantial refinements to both transfer performance and stability for professional storage applications. RocketStor 6628A benefits from streamlined performance and highly stable transfers for large block size applications such as video production and editing, media streaming and content creation.
The ability to manage the high-levels of heat generated by pronged, sustained I/O sessions on today’s high-capacity hard disks is a prime concern when choosing the right RAID enclosure solution. RocketStor 6628 Series RAID enclosures seamlessly integrate LED’s, audible alarms, and superior cooling apparatus to ensure your storage investments and the critical data they host stay cool, healthy and productive. Proactive monitoring systems intelligently adjust fan speed on the fly to eject waste heat from the chassis and prolong the life of today’s high-capacity SAS and SATA hard drives.
RocketStor 6628 Series RAID enclosures are significantly more versatile that conventional external storage solutions, which rely on pre-packaged storage comprised solely of drives of the same speed and capacity. Customers are free mix and match disks of different capacities and speed levels to meet the needs of any application; SSD's for Maximum Performance, HDD's for Mass Storage, or a combination of both for tasks that call for high-speed workspace and archiving capability.
Equipped with the latest Thunderbolt™ 3 USB-C technology, the RocketStor 6628A can deliver 40Gbps transfer rates. Projects utilizing 4K DPX 16 bit footage require approximately 1,790MB/s of transfer performance; the RocketStor 6628A is capable of supporting full 4K uncompressed video production, In addition, if the source is ProRes 444, the RocketStor 6628A can support over 5 individual streams!

HighPoint Hardware RAID Architecture
HighPoint’s proven hardware RAID architecture incorporates dedicated processing and caching resources to maximize the performance and security of professional storage applications. This allows the RocketStor 6628A RAID enclosure to operate independently in order to minimize the impact of storage related I/O on the host system.
Unique to our hardware RAID solutions, DV Mode Technology intelligently manages the flow of large data blocks and write-back caching to minimize latency and ensure consistent, sustained high-performance transfers for professional media applications.
HighPoint DV Mode for Streaming Performance
DV Mode Technology intelligently manages the flow of large data blocks and write-back caching to minimize latency and ensure consistent, sustained high-performance transfers for media-rich applications.
Robust RAID Protection
The built-in NVRAM 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.
Open-Box Storage Solution
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. Customers can add drives as needed to meet the evolving performance or capacity requirements of the storage application.
Storage Expansion Ready
Daisy-Chain capability allows customers to link as many as 6 independent RocketStor 6628A units using a single Thunderbolt™ 3 host port. The 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.
No Restrictions: Connect to any existing Thunderbolt™ or Thunderbolt™ 2 Host System
