HighPoint NVMe Technology; Unbeatable Storage Performance
HighPoint NVMe technology represents a paradigm shift for workstation acceleration. Our internal PCIe NVMe RAID controllers and external NVMe RAID enclosures pack the performance capabilities of large-scale, 20+ SATA SSD RAID arrays into compact, stand-alone storage devices that can be easily incorporated into Apple’s premier workstation platform – the newly redesigned 2019 Mac Pro and macOS 10.15 Catalina.
For the majority of Mac Pro users, performance is paramount, and the system’s storage is no exception. High speed storage is essential for a wide range of professional applications and digital media in particular. Storage not only hosts the software application, but is used as virtual workspace for speed-intensive projects such as audio or video editing and post production. While SATA remains the default storage interface of choice for the majority of media professionals due to due to its wide availability and affordability, it is becoming increasingly obvious that SATA devices are now better suited for a standard computing environment or mass storage application than high-performance applications.
A four-port SATA solution can deliver a maximum of 2,400MB/s. An equivalent NVMe-based solution is over 5 times faster, and can deliver an astounding 14,000MB/s from just four M.2 or U.2 SSD’s! HighPoint’s revolutionary Cross-Sync technology pushes the envelope even further, and can double performance to 28,000MB/s using just two compact controllers!
Experience Mind Blowing Performance without Compromising Data Redundancy!
SSD6540 RAID Enclosures offer a unique feature for 2019 Mac Pro users: RAID 1/0 capability. RAID 1/0, also known as RAID 10, delivers the best of both worlds – Maximum Performance & Security. RAID 1/0’s mirroring capability protects all members of a RAID 0 set, and delivers superior performance; it enables SSD6540 and 6540M enclosures to address both RAID 0 sets simultaneously to minimize access times and enhance data retrieval.
HighPoint NVMe solutions benefits from our performance-focused hardware architecture, which delivers true end to end PCIe 3.0 x16 transfer bandwidth in an ultra-compact, user-friendly package. Our integrated SMART Switching solution allocates 4x dedicated lanes for each SSD to ensure maximum transfer performance and immediate response time – up to 3,500MB/s per M.2 or U.2 port! You can now experience the full performance potential of NVMe storage without the hassle of complex hardware installations, or the administrative headaches of traditional RAID systems.
NVMe Cross-Sync RAID Technology enables administrators to link two SSD7100 controllers or SSD6540 enclosures to act as a single storage device, and dramatically boost performance and storage capacity.
A single NVMe RAID card or enclosure can support up to 8TB of storage and deliver 14,000MB/s of transfer speed. HighPoint Cross-Sync technology doubles capacity to 16TB while delivering and astonishing 28,000MB/s of performance!
Cross-Sync RAID Technology
Double Your Speed & Capacity!
HighPoint manufactures the industry’s widest selection of internal NVMe RAID storage soluitions for the 2019 Mac Pro. Our compact NVMe SSD7100 series M.2 RAID controllers are no larger than your average graphics adapter, but can host up to 8TB of blazing fast storage without the need for internal drive bays. A single controller can deliver up to 14,000MB/s of transfer performance and up to 28,000MB/s using dual controllers in a Cross-Sync RAID Configuration.
