The uncompromised 10Gb/s performance bandwidth and modular SATA bays support any industry standard SATA SSD and hard drive. The RocketStor 5212, like all RocketStor storage docks, benefits from HighPoint's persistent compatibility testing, which ensures full compliance with all current and upcoming SATA storage devices, including today's fastest 6Gb/s SSD's and high-capacity 4TB hard drives.

SMART Clone Software Storage Solution

The RocketStor 5212 comes bundled with HighPoint's Storage Software Solution - SMART Clone, as Free Software. The SMART Clone application can duplicate any drive or partition to the disk of your choice, at up to twice the speed of ordinary backup utilities! The bootable, user-friendly interface works with any computing platform, and provides three easy to use duplication functions: Clone Image (create a duplicate of a disk or partition and save as an .iso image), Clone Mirror (clone a disk or partition to another disk or partition), and Restore (use a Clone Mirrored image to restore a corrupt drive).
