Industry's-1st-DAS,-Single-HBA-Petabyte-Solution_banner.png

The Industry’s first DAS, single HBA Petabyte solutions! 

HighPoint’s Rocket 700 series product line represent the industry’s densest single-card HBA solutions. As successors to the industry’s original single-card mass storage solution, Rocket 750 6Gb/s SATA HBA, Rocket 700 series High-Port-Count (HPC) 12G HBAs are available with up to 48 independent device channels, and are capable of supporting any industry standard 2.5” or 3.5” SAS or SATA hard disk drive. The full-length, single width HBAs can be easily integrated into any full-size tower or industry standard rackmount server with an available PCIe 3.0 or 4.0 x16 slot.

Comprehensive Management Suite with Optional Boot Capability

Customers that require an all-in-one storage solution with mirrored data protection and boot capability can configure and manage one or more RAID 1 or 0 arrays using HighPoint’s comprehensive storage monitoring and management suite, which is comprised of an intuitive web-browser based GUI and an advanced command Line interface (CLI). Rocket 700 series controllers are also available with a legacy BIOS interface, UEFI RAID creation tool, and UEFH HII BIOS tool, which can be injected into the platform’s standard BIOS menu if the motherboard supports the IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) specification.

HighPoint’s SHI (Storage Health Inspector)

The SHI monitoring interface allows administrators to instantly check the operating status of storage devices in real-time. SHI utilizes SMART technology to log and report the characteristics of each physical drive, such as temperature, voltage, and disk related warnings or errors.

1-Click Self-Diagnostic Solution

HighPoint’s Web-based graphical management suite (WebGUI) now includes a host of automated diagnostic tools designed to streamline troubleshooting and Technical Support inquiries, even for fist-time users. 1-Click streamlines the support process by minimizing back-and-forth communication between the customer and FAE Team Members (Field Application Engineering). Administrators no longer have to manually assemble a collection of screenshots, logs and status reports. 1-click enables the interface to gather all necessary hardware, software and storage configuration data and compile it into a single file, which can be transmitted directly to our FAE Team.

OOB Management via HII

 

Rocket 700 series HBAs can accommodate OOB (out-of-band) remote management via HII (human interface infrastructure) capability. This feature is designed for use with motherboards and computing platforms that support third party HII devices.

Comprehensive Support for all Major OS Platforms

 

Rocket 700 series HBAs are compatible with all current Windows operating system, Linux distributions that utilize kernel v3.10 and later, and VMware ESXi. Device drivers are routinely updated to keep in sync with official OS updates. Linux Open-Source Package with Auto-Compilation: The administrator need only install the root package; the driver will handle all future updates automatically, such as checking/monitoring the status of kernel releases, preparing the system environment, recompiling a new driver, and installation.

HighPoint Certified Cable Accessories

 

We manufacture a selection of certified data cables for Rocket 700 series 12Gb/s SAS 6G SATA Connectivity HBAs.

HighPoint Certified Cable accessories are fully compliant with all current technology standards and have been rigorously tested with our Rocket/RocketRAID series controller cards to ensure maximum transfer performance, secure connectivity, and ease of integration.

As we cannot guarantee secure connectivity, stability or compatibility with unqualified third-party cable accessories or adapters, we recommend that only HighPoint Certified cables be used with our controller products. Learn More
