HighPoint announces RocketRAID 3540

HIGHPOINT RELEASES 16-PORT HARDWARE RAID CONTROLLER, WITH RAID 6 PERFORMANCE AND PROTECTION

 

Milpitas, Calif. - HighPoint announces the immediate availability of the RocketRAID 3540 based on the Intel® IOP341 I/O Processor. The RocketRAID 3540 is the newest addition to the RocketRAID 3000 Series of RAID controllers enabling superior RAID 6 performance and protection for enterprise servers by utilizing the benefits of the Intel® IOP341 I/O processor and completes the RocketRAID 3000 Family Series.

 

The RocketRAID 3540 is a x8 PCI-Express 16-port hardware RAID controller with advance RAID levels (0,1, 3, 5, 6,10,50) that delivers unprecedented performance for enterprise servers with maximum throughput speeds of over 750MB/s for READ / and over 560MBM/s WRITE operation. The RocketRAID 3540 x8 offers the highest I/O's (Input/Output) per second for storage servers, web servers and database server workloads that require random disk access and the best data protection against multiple drive failures. Additionally, the Intel® IOP341 I/O processor includes a high performance multi-ported memory controller to assists in optimizing throughput for READ / WRITE operations.

 

RAID 6 safeguards data against two drive failures for maximum fault tolerance by uniquely calculating double-parity simultaneously, rather than consecutively. Hardware RAID 6 is implemented in the RocketRAID 3540 and the RocketRAID 3000 series controllers using (P+Q) calculations.

 

HighPoint's TerabyteStream technology boosts performance with an intelligent data caching algorithm that distinguishes multiple concurrent data streams by managing data from the controller cache. TerabyteGuard™ provides the data protection and reliability needed for enterprise storage environments with advance disk monitoring tools.

 

The PCI-Express x8 upstream link enables the RocketRAID 3540 to offer the bandwidth needed for moving data bandwidth-intensive applications including media servers, email databases, and application servers.
