Industry’s Fastest & Most Versatile PCIe Gen4 NVMe RAID AICs

HighPoint’s PCIe Gen4 RAID add-in-cards (AICs) are the industry’s fastest and most versatile PCIe Gen4 NVMe RAID storage controllers. Built for I/O hungry applications that demand maximum throughout and capacity in a compact, easily installed package, PCIe Gen4 RAID AICs employ a Performance-Focused PCIe Switching Architecture designed to deliver a class-leading x48 lanes of bus bandwidth; 16 lanes of dedicated direct to CPU Upstream Bandwidth and x4 lanes of Dedicated Downstream bandwidth to each NVMe port!

HighPoint PCIe Gen4 NVMe RAID AICs are more than just fast controller cards – they were engineered to serve as robust a foundation for a comprehensive, full-featured NVMe storage ecosystem. Gen4 RAID Series AICs are equipped with industry proven RAID and Storage Technology, Performance Optimization solutions and flexible Management suites. Designed to streamline NVMe storage administration, Gen4 RAID series AICs simplify the initial installation and setup process, secure critical data assets during RAID migration and storage upgrade procedures, and optimize your post-sales service and support workflows.

Equipped with Industry Leading PCIe Gen4 Switch Technology

Unlike ordinary NVMe controllers, which tend to rely on the host platform for PCIe bandwidth allotment (Bifurcation), Gen4 RAID series AICs employ state of the art PCIe Switch Chipsets to ensure each NVMe device port is capable of delivering maximum throughput whenever the need arises.

PCIe Gen4 series NVMe RAID AICs incorporate Broadcom’s industry leading PCIe Gen4 48-Lane PEX88048 switch chipset to optimize signal integrity, reduce latency, maximize transfer throughput. This highly flexible, Performance-Focused PCIe Switching Architecture  is unique to HighPoint NVMe solutions and ensures bandwidth is never wasted. Gen4 RAID AICs allocate a dedicated x16 lanes of upstream bandwidth and x4 lanes of downstream bandwidth to each device, and are capable of delivering up to 28GB/s of transfer throughput via a single PCIe slot.

Powered by Industry Proven RAID & Storage Technology

HighPoint’s industry-proven NVMe RAID stack has been designed to fully leverage the performance focused PCIe switch architecture employed by each Gen4 RAID AIC, and is capable of delivering up to 28,000MB/s of real-world sustained transfer performance using just four NVMe SSDs via as single PCIe Gen4 x16 slot.

Each Gen4 RAID AIC can accommodate one or more RAID arrays, non-RAID single SSD configurations, or a combination of the two, including bootable volumes for Linux and Windows based platforms. Administrators can fine-tune NVMe storage for a variety of applications; RAID 0 Striping to maximize transfer performance, RAID 1 Mirroring for data redundancy, or a combination of both via RAID 10.

RAID 0 (Striping) - Also known as a “stripe” array, this mode delivers Maximum Performance and capacity by linking multiple NVMe SSD's together to act as a single storage unit.

 

RAID 1 (Mirroring) - This mode creates a hidden duplicate of the target SSD, and is ideal for applications that require an extra layer of data security, including bootable volumes.

 

RAID 10 (Security & Speed) - RAID 10 offers a “best of both worlds” approach to storage configuration by leveraging striping with mirroring technology; two RAID 1 arrays are striped together to maximize performance. RAID 10 is capable of delivering read performance on par with RAID 0.

 

Cross-Sync RAID Technology: SSD7500 AICs enable administrators to optimize RAID performance by scaling available bus bandwidth up to 32 lanes, and deliver up to 55,000MB/s of transfer performance.

HighPoint’s versatile NVMe RAID technology and comprehensive Management suite enables customers to scale storage configurations to meet the evolving requirements of the target application and workflow. All arrays configured using SSD series AICs are fully roam-capable; RAID arrays can be freely moved between one AIC to another while remaining intact and accessible, even if the original disk order is altered. In addition, Administrators are free to expand available storage capacity, and even change from one RAID level to another without sacrificing existing data assets.

Advanced Gen4 Cooling System Eliminates Thermal Throttling

HighPoint’s Low-Noise Hyper-Cooling solution eliminates the risk of thermal throttling by ensuring PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSDs consistently operate within their recommended temperature thresholds, even under sustained heavy I/O. Each controller features a full-length anodized aluminum heat sink that is equipped with one or more ultra-durable, low-decibel fans and high-conductivity thermal pads. This innovative, ultra- efficient cooling system rapidly transfers waste heat away from critical NVMe and controller componentry, without introducing unwanted distraction into your work environment.
