Massive Storage Capacity & Performance

HighPoint PCIe Gen3 High Port Count (HPC) NVMe RAID HBAs were designed for professional applications that require a small-footprint, mass-storage NVMe solution that can take full advantage of the PCIe 3.0 x16 transfer bandwidth. This performance-focused NVMe RAID architecture ensures that up to x4 lanes can be assigned to each device channel to ensure maximum transfer throughput – ideal for professional media workstation and server environments designed to support a wide range of editing, rendering, capture and streaming applications.

HighPoint HPC U.2 NVMe Controllers allow customers to complete saturate the PCIe 3.0 bus-bandwidth with sustained write performance over 14,000MB/s, while simultaneously supporting up to 120TB of storage capacity!


Performance Focused, Platform Independent NVMe RAID Solution

HighPoint NVMe RAID controllers are fully independent NVMe storage solutions. SSD7000 series PCIe Gen3 NVMe RAID HBAs do not require a hardware environment with Bifurcation support and can be easily integrated into any AMD or Intel computing platform with a dedicated PCIe 3.0 or 4.0 x16 slot. The SSD7180 leverages intelligent PCIe switch technology to allocate up to 4x dedicated lanes to each NVMe SSD to ensure maximum transfer speed and immediate response time.


Flexible 2.5" U.2 Form Factor

The U.2 ports provide customers with a great deal of flexibility when selecting an appropriate hardware platform. The connectors are compatible with a wide selection of 2.5” form-factor rackmount chassis available in today’s marketplace. In addition, the industry standard SFF-8639 connectors accept cables of varying length, which allow the SSD7180 RAID HBA to be easily integrated into custom chassis designs. This design simplifies field upgrades and maintenance sessions, and is ideal for chassis that require removable drive trays for quick access to storage devices.


Industy Proven NVMe RAID Engine

The SSD7180 is powered by HighPoint's industry proven NVMe RAID stack and is capable of supporting RAID 0, 1, 10 arrays and single-drives, including mixed configurations of single-disks and arrays, or multiple arrays.
