The HighPoint RocketRAID 2720SGL

Here we get our first look at the RocketRAID 2720SGL. Being a software RAID controller, there isn't an XOR engine onboard or RAM for a data buffer. On the back you see the two SFF-8087 ports that are used to connect the drives and at the bottom is the PCIe 2.0 8 lane connector.

The back of the card is fairly plain with nothing connecting on this side.

The two SFF-8087 connectors use standard spacing, so there is a small gap between them.

The heatsink fits inside the envelope of space specified for a single PCIe slot, so if you need to use the RocketRAID 2720 between two video cards, you can.

Included in the package is a paper manual, driver / software disk and a low profile bracket for use in smaller servers.
