RocketAIC 7749EW Series


PCIe Gen 4 x16 NVMe AIC SSD - Up to 61TB of DC Class Storage


RocketAIC 7749E Front Side

In the arena of data-intensive applications, where transfer speed and storage capacity reign supreme, HighPoint’s revolutionary RocketAIC 7749EW PCIe Gen4 x16 NVMe AIC RAID SSD stands heads and shoulders above the competition.

Designed to meet the rigorous demands of AI Edge Servers, Data Centers and High-Performance Workstations, this state-of-the-art NVMe storage device leverages KIOXIA XD7P DC Class E1.S SSDS and HighPoint industry leading RAID technology to deliver an unbeatable combination of ultra-dense storage capacity and blazing-fast transfer speeds efficiently packaged into a robust, compact PCIe AIC form factor.

Engineered for performance-hungry industrial and business applications, RocketAIC 7749EW drives utilize HighPoint’s ground breaking dual-wide PCB architecture and Broadcom’s industry leading PCIe PCIe switch ICs to maximize the density, performance and reliability of E1.S storage media. The AIC’s robust aluminum casing fully encloses and protects the NVMe media and sensitive hardware from high-stress working environments, and incorporates a purpose-built cooling system designed to mitigate performance bottlenecks imposed by thermal throttling. 

RocketAIC 7749E NVMe AIC SSDs are available with up to 61TB of storage capacity, and deliver an unprecedented 28,000MB/s of sustained transfer bandwidth, all from a single PCIe 4.0 x16 slot. 


Performance-Focused Hardware Architecture

HighPoint RocketAIC NVMe AIC SSDs incorporate Broadcom industry-leading PCIe switch chipsets, to optimize signal integrity, reduce latency and maximize transfer throughput. The highly flexible, performance-focused hardware architecture is unique to our NVMe solutions and ensures bandwidth is never wasted. RocketAIC 7749EW series drives allocate a dedicated x16 lanes of upstream bandwidth, and x4 lanes of downstream bandwidth to each device port. This enables each AIC to deliver up to 28,000MB/s of real-world sustained transfer bandwidth; the maximum possible from a single PCIe Gen4 slot!

Precision Engineered Double-Width NVMe Cooling Solution_RocketAIC 7749E

Precision Engineered Double-Width NVMe Cooling Solution

As NVMe technology continues to proliferate across vertical markets, the demand for a faster, denser storage solution that utilizes compact form-factor M.2 SSDs and new DC class E1.S media, is on the rise. However, such solutions require a much more robust and efficient cooling system. High-density PCIe Gen4 NVMe media generates a considerable volume of waste heat under load; successfully managing this heat is the key to unlocking the full performance potential of NVMe storage.

In response to this growing demand, HighPoint’s product development team have engineered an entirely new double-width cooling solution for the RocketAIC 7749EW series. Designed to drastically improve cooling performance over existing single-width solutions, this innovative new system mitigates the threat of thermal throttling and ensures high-density PCIe Gen4 E1.S media consistently deliver maximum throughput for extended I/O sessions.

Quick & Intuitive Management Suite

Though RocketAIC NVMe AIC SSDs are designed to work right out of the box, customers are free to install HighPoint’s intuitive WebGUI and CLI management software suite, which includes our SHI solution (Storage Health Inspector), which provides simple and quick real-time temperature monitoring and endurance tracking. Customers can easily reconfigure the RocketAIC drive and tailor RAID storage for a specific Target Application & Platform.

Striping - This mode delivers Maximum Performance and capacity by linking multiple NVMe SSDs together to act as a single storage unit.

Mirroring - This mode creates a hidden duplicate of the target SSD, and is ideal for applications that require an extra layer of data security, including bootable volumes.

Security & Speed –This mode offers the best of both worlds. Two mirrored arrays are striped together to maximize performance with a layer of data redundancy.
