Open Platform for NVMe RAID Storage

FnL AIC Drives represent a new open platform for developing, building and integrating NVMe-based RAID storage solutions. FnL AIC Drives combine HighPoint SSD series NVMe RAID controllers with select SSD’s provided by our NVMe technology partners.

FnL AIC Drives take the pain and guesswork out of NVMe RAID storage. Years of storage expertise and technology partnerships with industry leading NVMe SSD vendors enables us to deliver blazing fast, pre-configured NVMe RAID storage for a wide range of applications, with little to no markup.

Customer Choice is Paramount

FnL delivers the industry’s most customizable NVMe RAID solutions. Our AIC drives are built for individual professional or corporate clients that need blazing fast, application-ready NVMe storage right out of the box.

No other NVMe storage provider comes close – we offer the industry’s widest selections of features, and performance is only one variable; customers can spec an AIC drive for a particular platform, operating system, capacity requirement and application.

Built for Real-World Applications

FnL NVMe solutions are verified using real-world hardware & software environments and industry standard testing suites to ensure they deliver performance and rock-solid reliability you expect from a professional NVMe storage solution.

FnL will publish reports that document RAID transfer performance of NVMe SSD’s manufactured by our technology partners using a wide range of test suites and hardware/software environments. This platform is not limited to existing partnerships; FnL is open to any NVMe vendor interested in promoting the RAID performance of their SSD product lines.

If you have any questions about our testing methodology, or would like to see results for a specific test suite or application, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can provide synthetic benchmark testing reports, real-world application and case studies and hardware and software compatibility reference.

FnL BRD Series NVMe AIC Drives – Driverless, High-Performance Boot Solutions: Bootable RAID AIC Drives are expertly tuned to deliver exceptional random I/O performance, and are ideal for professional applications that require secure, rapid boots and high-speed workspace.
FnL Bootable RAID AIC series solutions can be used to boot a wide-spectrum of modern operating systems and VM (Virtual Machine) platforms, and are universally compatible with both PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 capable motherboards.

Your Choice: Tune for Maximum Security or Performance: Customers that need an extra layer of data security, and maximize uptime can request their BRD AIC drive be preconfigured as a RAID 1 Mirrored array. RAID 1 creates a secure, hidden backup of your AIC drive is that will automatically take over in case of a hardware failure. Customers looking to minimize boot times while maximizing response time can opt for RAID 1 striping.

Hassle-Free Installation: The FnL Bootable RAID series are essentially pre-configured, ultra-high-performance plug-and-play RAID drives. The RAID configuration is fully transparent to the operating system, and will automatically be recognized as a single volume. In addition, FnL BRDL series AIC drives are supported natively by all modern operating system platforms – no drivers are required!

Driverless OS Upgrades: unlike many NVMe RAID solutions in today’s marketplace, BRD Series AIC drives are natively supported by the in-box NVMe drivers included with all modern operating system platforms. BRD AIC drives require no special procedures or additional software when installing patches or updates.
BRD Series AIC drives are designed for use with all major operating systems, including Windows 10, Windows Server 2019, Microsoft Hyper-V, FreeBSD and Linux based distributions, and VM Platforms such as VMware, Proxmox, and Citrix Hypervisor.

FnL SRD Series NVMe AIC Drives – Unbeatable Sequential Transfer Performance: FnL Storage AIC RAID Drives (SRD) represent the easiest way to add blazingly fast, high-capacity NVMe storage to a Windows, Linux or macOS platform.

FnL Storage RAID AIC Drives (SRD) were designed for professional workflows that require ultra-high-performance workspace and massive storage capacity in a compact, easy to integrate package.
SRD NVMe AIC Drives are ideal for high-speed data acquisition and processing applications such as AI training, scientific analysis and simulation, 3D rendering systems, and large-scale media capture & security solutions.
More often than not, such applications require a robust storage device with a small hardware footprint, capable of delivering sustained transfer speeds up to 28,000MB/s (28GB/s). This largely rules out SAS/SATA HDD or SSD-based solutions due to the massive hardware footprint needed to meet these performance requirements.
In contrast, FnL NVMe RAID Drives are no larger than your average PCIe graphics card. A single, compact SRD PRO class AIC drive is capable of delivering up to 16,000MB/s (16GB/s) of sustained write transfer performance for hours on end!

Massive Storage Capacity: FnL delivers the industry’s largest NVMe RAID drives. SRD AIC drives are available with up to 64TB of high-speed M.2 storage, which can be preconfigured into RAID 1, RAID 0 or RAID 1/0 arrays and pre-formatted for all major operating system platforms.

FnL CRD Series NVMe RAID Solutions: Unparalleled storage Performance: If our SRD solutions aren’t up the task, we invite you to explore the magic of FnL CRD. CRD elevates NVME storage to an entirely new level. CRD (Cross-Sync RAID AIC Drives) were designed for applications with extreme storage performance and capacity requirements.

CRD solutions employ HighPoint’s industry-proven Cross-Sync RAID striping technology to link two or more AIC drives to function as a single massive RAID volume. A pair of Gen4 AIC drives are capable of providing up to 64TB of storage capacity while delivering an astonishing 40,000MB/s of transfer performance!

CRD Solutions are available for Windows, Linux and macOS operating systems, and can be easily installed into any modern PC and Mac platform with two free PCIe 3.0 or 4.0 x16 slots.

FnL Monitor: FnL Monitor is an intuitive, web-based monitoring utility that is available for all major operating system platforms. FnL Monitor’s enables customers to check and track the health of their AIC drives in real time.
Full Fan control with active temperature monitoring is ideal for applications that require low-noise working environments. Fan speed can be lowered or raised as conditions change, or even completely disabled if silent operation is required.
In addition, a built-in Event log and configurable Email notification enables customers to monitor their AIC Drive from outside the workplace.

Wide-Spectrum of Supported Operating Systems: FnL solutions are compatible with all major operating system platforms including macOS, Linux Distributions , FreeBSD and Windows. Our driverless models includes are supported natively, and are ideal for VM applications built around VMware, Proxmox & Microsoft-Hyper-V.

OS Specific storage formats: Customers can request OS-specific pre-formatted volumes for RAID-based AIC drives. This service is free of charge, and available for all major operating system platforms including macOS, Windows, FreeBSD and Linux distributions.
