RocketU 1144CM HBA's are fully compatible with OSX 10.6x and later, including the most up to date builds of Mountain Lion 10.8x.

 

Each RocketU 1144CM includes HighPoint's intuitive Web-based management interface, which allows administrators to quickly create and manage a variety of storage configurations including RAID levels 0, 1, JBOD, and individual drives.
