The SSD7749E E1.S NVMe AIC represents the next generation of compact RAID solutions, and was designed for Industrial & Edge Server applications that demand a compact, easily integrated, ultra-high-density RAID storage solution with blistering PCIe Gen4 x16 performance and enterprise-class reliability and endurance.

The innovative dual-wide architecture enabled HighPoint product engineers to take a no holds barred approach to controller board design. Similar in size to a high-performance dual-width GPUs, SSD7749 series AICs are enclosed by a full-length aluminum casing, which serves three primary purposes; to shield critical componentry from the working environment, provide ready access to the NVMe media via a tool-less loading system, and most importantly, host a robust, precision-engineered cooling system designed to accommodate today’s fastest high-density storage media, and eliminate thermal throttling.
