HighPoint’s RocketStor 6400TS Series SFF-8088 to SAS/SATA enclosures are highly-secure, blazing fast, professional grade alternatives to USB-based external SAS/SATA storage solutions. Available with up to 8 independent drive bays, RocketStor 6400 series enclosures can deliver over 3000MB/s of transfer bandwidth and are capable of hosting 160+TB of storage capacity. The robustly constructed aluminum enclosures are capable of hosting host up to eight of today’s fastest and densest SAS/SATA hard drives and SSDs. The integrated RAID technology enables administrators to easily configure maintain one or more RAID configurations, which can be tailored to maximum performance, storage capacity or data redundancy.
RocketStor 6400TS series enclosures can be easily installed into any PC or Mac platform with a free PCIe x16 slot, and include comprehensive driver support for all major Windows, Linux and macOS operating systems.
RocketStor 6400TS series RAID enclosures are shipped as complete kits; compact tower enclosure with removable 2.5”/3.5” drive trays, all necessary SFF-8088 and power cabling, and a PCIe RAID AIC equipped with external SFF-8088 port connectivity.
Robust, Enterprise-Grade External Storage Connectivity
Customers in search of secure, high-performance data-pipeline for external SAS/SATA storage media need look nofurther.
HighPoint RocketStor 6400 series SAS/SATA RAID enclosures employ industry-standard SFF-8088 connectivity to maximum transfer throughput and data integrity. Developed for enterprise grade storage applications, SFF-8088 cables are robustly constructed, and highly secure; they utilize locking/latching mechanisms that prevents accidental removal. A single SFF-8088 cable provides enough bandwidth to enable four SAS/SATA devices to operate at optimal speeds (500-600MB/s each).
Powered by Industry Proven RAID & Storage Technology
RocketStor 6400 series SAS/SATA RAID enclosures are powered by HighPoint's industry-proven RAID stack, which enables each solution to support one or more RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 , 50 and JBOD arrays and single-drive configurations. RocketStor 6400 series enclosures are also capable of supporting bootable drives and arrays for Linux and Windows platforms.
Storage Availability & Accessibility
Robust Redundant RAID 5 & 6 Protection: The RocketStor 6418TS has integrated a series of preemptive security measures to maximize Storage uptime whenever data is needed. Redundant RAID 5 and 6 protection shields storage configurations from 1 or 2 disk failures without compromising data accessibility.
Robust RAID Recovery
Efficient RAID Recovery Solution: The RocketStor 6418TS can save and manage redundant RAID Configurations to ensure RAID accessibility and availability. This configuration data can be used to recover disabled arrays in the case of a power outage or severe hardware failure.
RAID and Storage Management & Monitoring Tools
RocketStor 6400 series SAS/SATA RAID Enclosures include our comprehensive suite of Storage and RAID Management & Monitoring tools. These software utilities have been actively developed for and perfected over many years, and are available for Linux, macOS and Windows operating systems.
The utility suite provides administrators with full manual control over almost all aspects of the storage solution, from monitoring hosted HDDs/SSDs in real time, recovering or rebuilding a storage configuration in an emergency situation, to configuring an automated maintenance schedule to proactively ward off the threat of downtime imposed by a potential hardware failure.
WebGUI (Web-Based Graphical Management Interface): The WebGUI is an intuitive graphical user interface designed to work with all modern Web Browsers. It the easiest interface to master, as many of the features, especially those related to RAID creation, have default settings that let you breeze through everything with a few simple clicks. However, the WebGUI also has many advanced features that are essential for maintaining a successful storage configuration.
CLI (Command Line Interface):The HighPoint CLI (Command Line Interface) is ideal for seasoned administrators and platforms that do not utilize graphical operating systems. For many Linux veterans, it is the tool of choice, as it runs from a terminal window, is universal for any distribution, and does not require a graphical OS.
SHI (Storage Health Inspector): SHI provides wealth of information about storage media, and enables administrators to instantly asses the temperature, endurance rating, and operational status of each hosted drive.
1-Click Self Diagnostic Logging Service: The WebGUI includes an automated diagnostic tool designed to streamline the troubleshooting process, even for novice administrators. The Diagnostic tab enables the interface to gather information about the corresponding hardware, software and storage configurations and compile it into a single file which can be submitted to our Support Department. Note, this software does not collect user-data (actual data stored to the storage devices), and poses no threat to security or privacy.
