Highpoint

HighPoint Technologies, Inc. has been providing cutting-edge, cost effective mass storage solutions since it's founding in 1995. Built upon the overwhelming success of the HPT3xx series of IDE/ATA hard disk controller IC's, HighPoint's current product line focuses on the state of the art SATA interface. We have successfully developed a series of high-performance SATA host adapters and peripherals, as well as our own e.SATA (external Serial ATA) technology. The release RocketRAID 1820 marked our entrance into the growing small-business server market. The RR1820 is an 8-channel, SATA RAID, PCI-X host adapter. This product is ideal for Audio and Video streaming, Data Servers, and High Performance Computing.

Direct Attached Storage / Enclosures

Direct Attached Storage or DAS is an external storage device that is connected directly to a server or workstation without a network device in between (ie there is no hub, switch or router required) using USB, Firewire or eSATA for example. This direct connection ensures fast access to data. A DAS will work as though the hard drives are internally connected, meaning drives can be partitioned, formatted and set up like any other internal hard drive or raid array. These DAS devices are available for standalone desk or rack mounting.

Enclosure (2.5" - 5.25") - ThunderBolt

External hard disks are ideal for backup or portable file storage, and these drives come in a large range of categories: some use desktop-sized 3.5in hard disks, other use smaller 2.5in drives, and faster products use SSDs. Most drives use USB 3, Thunderbolt or eSATA connections, and these drives can come in different types of case – some are designed to be tiny, and others are ruggedized to stand up to dust, water and even fire.

Firewire/Thunderbolt Cables

The IEEE 1394 interface is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and isochronous real-time data transfer, frequently used by personal computers, as well as in digital audio and digital video.

IDE/SATA I

A simple disk array controller may be integrated with a host bus adapter (HBA) to form a single adapter to easily fit inside a computer. These additional add-in cards allow you to add more IDE or Serial ATA drives to your system to give you more storage capacity. Some of these cards also allow the use of RAID thus increasing the performance and data security.

NAS - 3 to 4 HDD Bays (Ex HDD)

These medium-size NAS units hold three or four HDDs. Entry-level units are great for home users and prosumers with lots of HD media and other data that needs centralising, while more advanced units come with faster processors and more advanced security and RAID features for business and surveillance users. These units are not sold with hard disks so you'll need to add your own – it's best to get matching models and capacities, especially if you plan on using RAID.

NAS - 5+ HDD Bays (Ex HDD)

These NAS units are the largest around, offering five HDD bays at a minimum and ten or more in many cases. They are typically geared towards advanced users who need plenty of storage space, and many are supplied in rackmount cases for use in industry and large-scale businesses. These units are not sold with hard disks so you'll need to add your own – it's best to get matching models and capacities, especially if you plan on using RAID.

Network Cards

Also known as a NIC (Network Interface Card ), these cards connect directly into the motherboard of your computer and feature an external network socket. This enables the computer to connect to a network via a network cable. Traditionally these network cards use the PCI slot on a motherboard, with newer cards using a PCIe interface. Advanced features include two or more network ports for specific applications. Note that network adaptors that convert a USB port into a network interface are also available.

SATA / SAS / eSATA - 8 Port - 6-12 Gb/s

These eight-port storage controller cards offer more versatility than many of their counterparts and can be used to configure RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, 50 and JBOD arrays. They're low-profile cards that use PCI-E connections, so can be fitted to most PCs without conflicting with other hardware.
