Performance SAS RAID Solution
HighPoint Turbo-RAID Technology
For over a decade, HighPoint has strived to take the cost and complexity out of RAID. We were the first to introduce affordable RAID 5 solutions to the storage marketplace, for both SMB and consumer applications. HighPoint Turbo RAID Products and Solutions are powered by our industry proven RAID stack, which leverages the powerful system resources and robust 2nd generation PCIe x8 host interface of today’s modern computing platforms. Turbo RAID Technology delivers the industry's best Cost-Performance value, and the industry's most affordableRAID-6 Storage Solutions.

RocketRAID HBA's support a wide-range of storage configurations including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, & JBOD.
Complete, Flexible Upgrade Paths
RocketRAID 2721 HBA's are fully backwards compatible with SAS/SATA 3Gb/s devices, PCI-Express 1.0 and 2.0 motherboards, and are compliant with all major operating systems including Windows, Linux, FreeBSD & Mac OS X. RAID arrays can be freely moved to any other RocketRAID 2700 series HBA. Upgrading, scaling and expanding your storage has never been easier.

RocketRAID 2700 series external-port HBA's were designed to work in conjunction with Rocket EJ Series SATA JBOD Expander and SAS-Expansion modules, which can dramatically expand the storage capability of each Mini-SAS connector.
Hybrid Storage Solution: LTO Tape & RAID Arrays
External-port RocketRAID 2721 HBA’s are fully compliant with the Industry Serial Attached SCSI Specification, which allows them to support LTO tape drives and SAS/SATA Hard Disk Drives, simultaneously, for Mac OSX, Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, and Linux PC Platforms.
Simple and Easy Storage Expansion
RocketRAID 2721 HBA's allow you to expand capacity and convert existing RAID arrays from one level to another without having to start from scratch: your data remains intact and accessible during the transition! OCE (Online Capacity Expansion) and ORLM (Online RAID Level Migration) features are provided by HighPoint's comprehensive and intuitive web-based user interface, which is available for all major operating systems including OS X, Windows 7 - 10, Linux Distributions and FreeBSD.
