Product Information

The SSD7101A-1 NVMe RAID controller represents a paradigm shift in system acceleration. Our innovative hardware architecture and game-changing NVMe RAID technology enable the compact PCIe 3.0 x16 controller to deliver up to 14,000 MB’s of performance from just 4 M.2 SSD’s. Any PC platform or 2019 Mac Pro system with a free, dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 slot can now experience a level of performance once exclusive to large-scale hard disk configurations and enterprise hardware platforms.

 

Performance-Focused Hardware NVMe Architecture

Our performance-focused NVMe hardware architecture delivers uncompromised end to end PCIe 3.0 x16 bandwidth; integrated Smart-Switching technology allocates 4x dedicated lanes for each SSD to ensure maximum transfer speed and immediate response time.

 

Cross-Sync RAID Technology Unleashes Groundbreaking NVMe Performance – Up to 28,000 MB/s!

HighPoint has broken new ground, and established another NVMe performance milestone for professional grade applications. The latest generation of high-performance CPU’s and motherboards can provide the PCIe 3.0 lanes required to power dual PCIe 3.0 x16 NVMe RAID controllers. Ultra-HD video projects, such as those working with raw 8K footage, require transfer performance exceeding 17,900 MB/s. Media professionals working with such hardware can now link two SSD7101A-1 NVMe RAID controllers to function as a single array, and configure RAID arrays of up to eight M.2 NVMe SSD’s to deliver up to 28,000 MB/s of transfer performance!

 

Up to 28,000 MB/s!

Industry Proven RAID Technology

RAID 1/0: Security & Speed

Unique to HighPoint NVMe RAID solutions, RAID 1/0 (also known as RAID 10) requires 4 M.2 SSD’s – it will mirror the data of one stripe array to a second, hidden stripe array for security.

RAID 0: Speed

Also known as a “stripe” array. This mode delivers Maximum Performance, and requires 2 to 4 M.2 SSD’s.

RAID 1: Security

This mode creates a hidden duplicate of the target M.2 SSD, and requires 2 drives.

New for Mac Platforms - Full Fan Control

The SSD7101A-1 now features full fan control when used with Mac platforms and macOS 10.14 and later. Customers can track the temperature of each NVMe SSD using the management interface’s SHI feature (Storage Health Inspector), and select from 3 speed settings or power-off the controller’s fan for silent operation.
This feature is ideal for media and design applications that require low-noise working environments.

Full Fan Control for macOS was introduced in December of 2019 - please contact us if you have any questions or comments about this feature.

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

HighPoint NVMe Manager

Each SSD7101A-1 RAID controller includes a simple, intuitive web-based management interface designed to provide a wealth of monitoring and configuration options for novice and experts alike.
A Quick Configuration menu allows new users to get everything up and running with a few simple clicks. Experienced Pros can fine tune configurations for specific applications, monitor the health of the controller and NVMe SSD’s, and configure event notification using the Advanced Options menu.

NVMe Storage Health & Life Span Monitoring

The SSD7100 Series RAID controllers include an intuitive, web-based interface, that in addition to RAID creation and storage management, features integrated TRIM support, SMART monitoring, and total Terabyte Written (TBW) tracking – essential data points for maintaining the longevity and endurance of any NVMe storage configuration.
SMART monitoring allows you to check a variety of physical attributes for each NVMe SSD, including temperature readings, voltage and TBW in real time.
