Equipped with three 2280 M.2 NVMe ports and four SFF-8643 Connectors, the SSD7110 can host blazing fast NVMe RAID storage and up to 16 SAS or SATA hard drives for high-density configurations. This unique approach to secondary storage expansion makes the SSD7110 ideally suited for applications that need more than a one-trick pony. The SSD7110 is capable of supporting up to 160TB of storage capacity, including up to 140TB in a dual-parity redundant RAID 6 configuration, in addition to 6TB of high-speed NVMe storage.
The SSD7110 can support a variety of NVMe-based boot configurations. Customers can configure up to three M.2 SSD's to act as individual drives (single/JBOD), and setup each to function as a separate boot volume. In addition, customers can configure two types of bootable RAID arrays; RAID 0 for maximum performance, or RAID 1 for security.
The SSD7110 can support bootable NVMe or SAS/SATA configurations when installed into Mac or PC platforms.
The image on the left shows an SSD7110 (cover removed) installed into a 2019 Mac Pro. An NVMe SSD has been configured as the system's boot device (macOS 10.15). There is enough clearance internally to attach two RocketStor 6418S enclosures via custom made internal to external cables SAS cables, passed through an unused PCIe slot.
The RocketStor 6418S enclosures allow customers to use either SAS or SATA hard drives (2.5" or 3.5") via a variety of Mini-SAS/Mini-SAS HD cabling solutions. This dual-enclosure configuration supports up to 16 drives.
The SSD7110 RAID controller is a fully independent NVMe RAID solution, and is 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. The SSD7110’s unique controller architecture supports both hot and cold storage configurations, and is ideal for Rackmount Storage applications such as Rendering Servers or local Storage Servers that require high speed data processing and mass storage capability in a single RAID controller.
In addition to the three 2280 M.2 NVMe ports, each SSD7110 RAID Controller features four SFF-8643 connectors, each of which can support up to four SAS/SATA Enterprise or RAID class hard drives, and up to 160TB of storage capacity. The SSD7110’s unconventional hybrid combination of high-speed M.2 support with truly massive storage expansion capability is well suited to a variety of storage applications. Integrated SAS/SATA RAID technology allows the SSD7110 to support RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 & JBOD RAID configurations, in addition to non-RAID single disk mode.
