For those of you that don't know, HighPoint Technologies is one of the largest RAID controller manufacturers in the world. With their latest RocketStor RAID solution, the 6414AS, HighPoint is releasing an affordable hardware RAID 5/6 solution utilizing what they call and open box platform. This allows consumers the flexibility to choose between SAS or SATA drives whether they be SSDs for top tier performance or hard drives to reach peak capacity.
The RocketStor 6414AS is a fully loaded storage solution that includes the RocketRAID 4522 HBA and the four-bay tower enclosure. The enclosure itself features the flexible SAS backplane, making the 6414AS ideal for applications that require hardware class redundancy and performance, without the price that most often comes with enterprise solutions. The chassis of the 6414AS features a brushed aluminum exterior with built-in power supply and external mini-SAS port. Each of the four drive bays is hot-swappable and support drive capacities up to 8TB, allowing this unit the ability to cater 32TB of capacity.
Supported RAID modes of this solution include RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 along with JBOD. RAID management is via the webGUI and is fully compatible with Windows 10 and the Microsoft Edge browser.
Above, we have the specifications of the RocketStor 6414AS. We start off with a 6Gb/s SAS interface via the Marvell RoC. 512MB of DDR3 memory is installed for cache, and it includes ECC protection. The connector of choice for this solution, on both ends, is the SFF-8088 mini-SAS.
