PCIe 3.0 x16 4-Port M.2 NVMe RAID HBA
Cost-Effective, High-Performance 4-Channel M.2 NVMe RAID Solution
The SSD7101A-1 leverages our industry proven PCIe Gen3 hardware architecture and NVMe RAID technology to deliver up to 14,000 MB/s of sustained transfer performance. The compact controller is smaller than your average GPU, yet directly hosts up to 4 M.2 NVMe SSD's of any form factor (2242/2260/2280/22110).
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 SSD7101A-1's intelligent PCIe switch technology allocates 4x dedicated lanes to each M.2 SSD to ensure maximum transfer speed and immediate response time.
Industy Proven NVMe RAID Engine: The SSD7101A-1 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.
Cross-Sync RAID Technology: SSD7101A-1 HBAs enable administrators to optimize RAID performance by scaling available bus bandwidth up to 32 lanes, and deliver up to 28,000MB/s of transfer speed.
Ultra-Efficient, Low-Decibel Cooling Solution
The SSD7101A-1's unique cooling system features a full-length anodized aluminum enclosure, with a robust near-silent fan and high-conductivity thermal padding. This combination mitigates the risk of thermal throttling by ensuring hosted NVMe SSDs consistently operate within their recommended temperature thresholds.
