September 2015, Milpitas, CA –For the past 20 years, HighPoint has been a professional RAID Storage Host Adapter and management solutions provider, constantly striving to bring quality RAID Storage technology to market at the industry’s most affordable price points.

We are proud to announce the availability of our RocketStor 631xA 8 and 4-Bay Hardware RAID Tower enclosures which deliver enterprise class quality, performance and reliability without the enterprise price tag!

Affordable without Compromising Hardware RAID Performance

HighPoint’s industry proven hardware RAID-on-Chip architecture incorporates dedicated ARM based processors and RAID5/6 CRC32 engines with internal DDR3 memory to optimize transfer speeds and accelerate access times. This allows RocketStor 631xA Series solutions to work independently and minimize the storage configuration’s impact on the computing platform’s resources, thereby enhancing performance for the entire system.

Our innovative DV Mode Technology intelligently manages the flow of large data blocks and write-back caching in order to minimize latency and ensure consistent, sustained high-performance transfers for media-rich applications.

Uncompromised Data Availability and Security

Administrators can initialize or schedule RAID verification sessions that check each disk or parity consistency; if any problems are found, the RocketStor 631xA will immediately rebuild the array to ensure the integrity of your data.

Each solution includes our innovative SHI (Storage Health Inspector) utility suite.

SHI allows customers to manage and monitor the health and status of each individual drive, and initialize or schedule Verification sessions to check the integrity of RAID arrays. SHI can Dynamically Repair or Remap disks on the fly, and initiate RAID rebuild sessions automatically, to ensure your storage remains ready and able.

In addition, each solution provides advanced configuration features for customers that need to fine tune storage for specific applications or create multiple arrays, such as RAID Rebuild Priority, RAID Block Size selection, and DV Mode.
