Designed for high-end desktop & workstation platforms, the SSD7120 is capable of delivering transfer performance up to 8x faster than onboard NVMe solutions, and up to 44x faster than conventional SATA SSD’s. The SSD7120’s unique hardware architecture provides dedicated PCIe 3.0 x4 (32Gb/s) bus bandwidth for each U.2 SSD, and unlocks the true performance potential of NVMe based storage configurations.
The U.2 ports are compatible a wide range of 2.5” rackmount chassis in today’s marketplace and simplify upgrade and maintenance procedures.
The U.2 ports provide customers with a great deal of flexibility when selecting an appropriate hardware platform. The connectors are compatible with a wide selection of 2.5” form-factor rackmount chassis available in today’s marketplace. In addition, the industry standard SFF-8639 connectors accept cables of varying length, which allow the SSD7120 RAID controller to be easily integrated into custom chassis designs. This design simplifies field upgrades and maintenance sessions, and is ideal for chassis that require removable drive trays for quick access to storage devices.
All SSD7100 Series RAID controllers are fully independent NVMe RAID solutions, and are not tethered to specific motherboards or chipset families; any system sporting a free PCIe 3.0 x16 slot with direct access to the CPU is fair game. This fact alone makes SSD7100 series RAID controllers ideal NVMe storage solutions for today’s high-end desktops, custom gaming PC’s and media workstations. Combine this independence with dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 host bandwidth and an industry proven RAID stack, and you have the ingredients for truly unbeatable NVMe storage solution.
Multiple SSD7120 NVMe RAID controllers can be linked and installed into a single system, and deliver up to 256Gb/s of performance – 8x faster than NVMe drives locked behind the Intel DMI 3.0 architecture. A single SSD7120 controller can aggregate multiple U.2 SSD 's at PCIe x16 bandwidth, and double that when used in dual configurations!
