Open-Box Storage Approach
The RocketStor 6314A is an affordable, professional grade hardware RAID solution with an “open-box” approach to storage applications. Customers have the freedom to use their choice of SAS or SATA storage device; SSD’s for performance or large hard disks for maximum capacity, from all RAID and NAS Class hard drive brands including HGST, Seagate, Toshiba and WDC. Customers can pair the RocketStor 6314A with 4 enterprise grade 8TB hard drives of their choice for hundreds less than comparable hardware RAID solutions.
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 6314A to work independently and minimize the storage configuration’s impact on the computing platform’s resources, thereby enhancing performance for the entire system.
