HighPoint RAID controller

HighPoint has unveiled its RocketRAID 2522 SATA RAID controller, which the company says is the world's first SATA RAID controller to deliver unmatched sustained read and right performance throughput at 1200MB/sec. The RocketRAID 2522 supports up to 40 SATA hard drives, as well as OCE (Online Capacity Expansion) that allows users to add storage to an existing RAID array without losing existing data. Dual external mini-SAS ports connect to any storage device with SATA, eSATA, or Infiniband connectivity, according to HighPoint, which offers support for various operating systems including Mac OS X as well as Linux and Windows. The controller fits into any PCI-e x8 or x16 slot to support RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, and JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks).

Other features of HighPoint's RocketRAID 2522 include port multiplier support, multiple RAID capability, online RAID level migration (ORLM), quick as well as background initialization for quick RAID configuration, and S.M.A.R.T monitoring hard drive status for improved reliability. The controller card offers BIOS, Web, and software-based RAID management (pricing was unavailable).
