RocketRAID 2840A host bus adapters capitalize on HighPoint’s two decades of RAID and storage technology to deliver professional grade RAID storage at a fraction of the cost of conventional host RAID solutions. Each adapter is powered by our industry proven RAID technology, superior Gen 3.0 PCIe express transfer bandwidth, and up to sixteen dedicated 6Gb/s SAS channels, which support robust, high-performance RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 1/0, 5/0 and JBOD configurations of SAS or SATA hard drives of any disk format, including 512, 512e and 4Kn.

RocketRAID 2840A host bus adapters are designed to maximize the uptime and accessibility of RAID storage. RocketRAID storage and RAID recovery solutions enhance data retrieval from failed disks and streamline rebuild sessions.
The universal RocketRAID WebGUI interface provides a wide range of preemptive monitoring and maintenance features that enable administrators to easily schedule verification sessions to ensure the health of each RAID storage configuration.

Seamlessly Upgrade RAID Storage
RocketRAID 2840A adapters deliver an unprecedented level of flexibility when it comes to storage configurations. Customers are free to expand or convert RAID storage configurations as needed to keep on top of the evolving demands of the storage application, without sacrificing existing data. Online Capacity Expansion (OCE) allows administrators to add new drives to existing arrays in order to expand available capacity. Online RAID Level Migration (ORLM) allows administrators to convert one RAID level to another in order to tune storage configurations for maximum performance or data security.
Arrays created with RocketRAID 2840A adapters are future-proof; Online RAID Roaming allows customers to move existing RAID arrays to other 2840A RAID controllers, in addition to all future HighPoint RAID products.
HighPoint offers a range of Customized Solution services for SMB Customers. We can tailor RocketRAID 2840A host bus adapters to meet the requirements of client defined storage applications across Linux, Windows and macOS platforms, and are ready to assist Solution Providers with unique product branding. A full API library is available for integration projects and we offer a variety of Enclosure Management services including SGPIO, SES-2 and I2C.

Multi-HBA Solution
HighPoint’s multi-HBA (host bus adapter) Non-RAID solution software packages are available for all major operating system platforms including Windows, Linux and macOS. The RocketRAID 2840A device driver enables up to four independent cards to work in unison, and effectively function as a single 64-channel 6G SAS host controller. This innovative approach to direct-attached mass storage connectivity allows customers to simplify the build process, streamline maintenance procedures, and provides dedicated SAS 6Gb/s point-to-point bandwidth for each connected device. The robust, versatile, device driver allows administrators to keep tabs on the operational status of each card and individual storage device via the RocketRAID 2840A's intuitive web-based management interface.
