HighPoint launches $139 Hardware RAID

RocketRAID 3120 is the name

| Posted: Apr 30, 2008 2:46 am

HighPoint has long been producing affordable and relatively well performing RAID controller cards for various markets. Up until recently though, its product portfolio was missing true hardware controlled products.

 

That all changes with the launch of the RocketRAID 3120 two port PCI-Express x1 RAID controller card. It has its own onboard I/O controller and memory, which is essentially what makes it hardware controlled, rather than relying on the system CPU to take care of the important controller duties.

 


Being a two channel controller, you'll get RAID 0 and 1 support along with JBOD. It is also designed using a low profile layout which will make it suitable for servers that are rack mounted. Probably the best part of the story is that it will only cost you $139 and with that HighPoint claims it is ending the luxury cost of true hardware RAID.

 

You can read more over at the HighPoint product webpage which is right here.
