SSD7184

PCIe 3.0 x16 Hybrid 8-Port U.2 NVMe RAID HBA


The Industry's Most Flexible 8-Port NVMe RAID HBA


Massive Storage Capacity & Performance

The SSD7184 is the industry’s first 8-Channel Hybrid Internal/External PCIe 3.0 NVMe RAID controller. This unique port configuration allows the SSD7184 to support both internal and external storage configurations; ideal for compact platforms that require a built-in option for storage expansion or the flexibility of a removable/portable storage device. The 4x SFF-8643 connectors can support up to 4 internal U.2 drives, while the external SFF-8644 ports were designed for use with external NVMe storage enclosures, such as our SSD6500 series.


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 SSD7184 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 SSD7184 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 SSD7184 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.
