What is Thunderbolt™ 3

High-Speed, Big Data or All-In-One: Your Choice!

Experience the Speed and Flexibility of RocketStor's Open Storage Concept: Each RocketStor enclosure was designed to accommodate a multitude of storage configurations and applications; 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.

The RocketStor 6618T is significant more versatile that conventional 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.

The RocketStor 6618T is powered by HighPoint's market proven Turbo RAID technology, and is the Industry's Most Cost-effective SATA RAID 5 & 6 Storage solutions available for Thunderbolt™ host platforms.

Comprehensive RAID Modes Meet all of Your Applications Needs

The RocketStor 6618T was designed for Professional Media Applications that demand consistent high speed transfers, flexibility and uncompromised reliability.

RAID Level Number of Disks Capacity Performance Redundancy Protection
0 At least 2 to 8 100%
1 At least 2 50%
5 At least 3 to 8 67% ~ 87%
6 At least 4 to 8 50% ~ 75%
50 Requires 6 or 8 50% ~ 87%

For raw power, customers can configure RAID 0 arrays comprised solely of SSD’s to attain up to 2,700MB of transfer performance. Hardware RAID 5 and 6 deliver the optimal combination of data security and performance; “stripe” RAID capability with protection for up to 1 and 2 disks respectively.

Simplify Your Workplace with Performance

The RocketStor 6618T is powered by our industry proven Turbo RAID technology which leverages powerful system resources and the latest Thunderbolt™ USB-C technology to deliver 40Gbps data transfer rates. Turbo class RAID enclosures are designed to deliver the industry's most cost-efficient RAID-6 Storage Solutions.

With up to 2700MB/s of transfer performance, the RocketStor 6618T supports multi stream UHD or ProRes 444 video editing and is suitable for a 4K compressed production workflows.
