The SSD7101A-1 NVMe RAID controller represents a paradigm shift in system acceleration. Our innovative hardware architecture and game-changing NVMe RAID technology enable the compact PCIe 3.0 x16 controller to deliver up to 14,000 MB’s of performance from just 4 M.2 SSD’s. Any PC platform or 2019 Mac Pro system with a free, dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 slot can now experience a level of performance once exclusive to large-scale hard disk configurations and enterprise hardware platforms.
Our performance-focused NVMe hardware architecture delivers uncompromised end to end PCIe 3.0 x16 bandwidth; integrated Smart-Switching technology allocates 4x dedicated lanes for each SSD to ensure maximum transfer speed and immediate response time.
HighPoint has broken new ground, and established another NVMe performance milestone for professional grade applications. The latest generation of high-performance CPU’s and motherboards can provide the PCIe 3.0 lanes required to power dual PCIe 3.0 x16 NVMe RAID controllers. Ultra-HD video projects, such as those working with raw 8K footage, require transfer performance exceeding 17,900 MB/s. Media professionals working with such hardware can now link two SSD7101A-1 NVMe RAID controllers to function as a single array, and configure RAID arrays of up to eight M.2 NVMe SSD’s to deliver up to 28,000 MB/s of transfer performance!
RAID 1/0: Security & Speed
Unique to HighPoint NVMe RAID solutions, RAID 1/0 (also known as RAID 10) requires 4 M.2 SSD’s – it will mirror the data of one stripe array to a second, hidden stripe array for security.
RAID 0: Speed
Also known as a “stripe” array. This mode delivers Maximum Performance, and requires 2 to 4 M.2 SSD’s.
RAID 1: Security
This mode creates a hidden duplicate of the target M.2 SSD, and requires 2 drives.
Requires 4x M.2 SSD's
Up to 4x M.2 SSD's
Up to 2x M.2 SSD's
Up to 4x Individual boot volumes
New for Mac Platforms - Full Fan Control
The SSD7101A-1 now features full fan control when used with Mac platforms and
macOS 10.14 and later. Customers can track the temperature of each NVMe SSD
using the management interface’s SHI feature (Storage Health
Inspector), and select from 3 speed settings or power-off the controller’s
fan for silent operation.
Full Fan Control for macOS was introduced in December of 2019 - please contact us if you have any questions or comments about this feature.
HighPoint NVMe Manager
Each SSD7101A-1 RAID controller includes a simple, intuitive web-based
management interface designed to provide a wealth of monitoring and
configuration options for novice and experts alike.
NVMe Storage Health & Life Span Monitoring
The SSD7100 Series RAID controllers include an intuitive, web-based
interface, that in addition to RAID creation and storage management,
features integrated TRIM support, SMART monitoring, and total Terabyte
Written (TBW) tracking – essential data points for maintaining the longevity
and endurance of any NVMe storage configuration.
