RocketRAID 840A

Maximizes SATA SSD Storage Performance :
RAID 5 Performance Up to 6,000MB/s!

RocketRAID 800 series host bus adapters are the industry’s fastest SATA RAID Controllers. The PCIe Generation 3.0 host interface and dedicated 6Gb/s SATA channels work in tandem to deliver uncompromised transfer performance for up to 16 SSD’s or hard disks. Backed by HighPoint’s 20 years of RAID technology expertise, and professional-grade RAID Storage reliability and management capabilities, RocketRAID 800 adapters are ideal for a wide range of cost-effective SATA storage applications.

Superior PCIe Gen 3.0 Transfer Bandwidth

RocketRAID 800 series host bus adapters allow customers to take full advantage of the superior transfer performance delivered by PCIe 3.0. Each PCIe lane supports up to 8 GT/s. PCIe 3.0 is ideal for today’s high-speed SSDs; the performance capabilities of multi-SSD RAID 5 configurations can achieve up to 6,000MB/s!

Professional-Class RAID Solutions

RocketRAID 800 series host bus adapters capitalize on HighPoint’s 2 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 our industry proven RAID technology, superior Gen 3.0 PCIe express transfer bandwidth, and up to sixteen dedicated 6Gb/s SATA channels, which support robust, high-performance RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 1/0, 5/0 and JBOD configurations using hard drives of any disk format, including 512, 512e and 4Kn.

RocketRAID 800 adapters were designed to maximize the uptime and accessibility of RAID storage. Advanced storage and RAID recovery tools enhance data retrieval from failed disks and streamline rebuild sessions. The universal RocketRAID WebGUI interface provides a wide range of preemptive monitoring and maintenance features that enable administrators to easily schedule verification sessions to ensure the health of each RAID storage configuration.

Seamlessly Upgrade RAID Storage

Rocket 800 series host bus adapters deliver 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. Arrays created with RocketRAID800 adapters are future proof, Online RAID Roaming allows customers to move existing RAID arrays to other 800series RAID controllers, in addition to all future HighPoint RAID products.
