General Information

The RocketRAID 4500 series 6Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID HBA's were designed to meet the demanding requirements of professional business and media applications, where consistent performance, data availability and reliability of storage are paramount.

8-Port, PCIe x8 2.0 6Gb/s SAS/SATA Hardware RAID HBA

The RocketRAID 4500 HBA's dedicated RAID-on-Chip processor and 512MB of onboard DDR 3 cache memory offloads RAID processing from the host system, ensuring stable and high-performance data transfer. RocketRAID 4500 HBA's are direct upgrades for our 3Gb/s RocketRAID 4300 Series Hardware RAID Controllers. Customers with existing RAID configurations can move these directly from the 4300 series controller to the RocketRAID 4500 HBA.

Superior Reliability

HighPoint's comprehensive suite of data security, RAID recovery and storage maintenance features provide an unprecedented level of reliability.

HighPoint DV Mode Technology

Video professionals may find that even hardware RAID-based storage systems will experience inconsistent performance when capturing or editing high quality digital video, which can greatly impede or even cripple the post-production process. These inconsistencies are caused by standard RAID caching algorithms, which are designed for server environments rather than media applications.

HighPoint has introduced DV Mode, an innovative caching algorithm designed for the video production applications. DV Mode reorganizes I/O in order to minimize the latency time of write-back caching workflow. This innovative new technology maintains consistent, sustained high-performance data transfer - a key component of any storage system dedicated to post production applications.

Comprehensive RAID & Storage Management Interface

The streamlined web-based user interface simplifies the storage configuration process and allows customers to quickly accesses total available capacity, the status of individual hard drives or SSD's, and the health of RAID and JBOD configurations. Optional auto rebuild and hot spare features add additional layers of data security to redundant RAID 5 and 6 configurations.

Administrators can designate unused drives to automatically take the place of failed units or configure the RocketRAID 4500 HBA to immediately initialize rebuild process by simply plugging in a new drive. Advanced management features allow customers to manage storage remotely via an internet connection or local network, and configure Email notification to inform one or more users of changing storage conditions while outside of the work environment. In addition, optional CLI packages are available for Linux and FreeBSD platforms.
