RocketRAID 3522

HighPoint Technologies has announced that the RocketRAID 3522 now supports booting Mac OS X on Apple Mac Pro (2006-2007) models. The RocketRAID 3522 has a dual mini-SAS interface that supports up to eight external direct connect SATA hard drives. Some of the new features available in the RocketRAID 3522 include selectable RAID block sizes for application tuning. Advance RAID level 0,1,5,6 and new RAID 3 support. Upgradable firmware support via the HighPoint web GUI and 32-bit EFI boot capability with Mac Pro 2006-2007 models. Booting support for Mac Pro 2008 models will be coming soon and requires an firmware upgrade through the HighPoint web management GUI.

The RocketRAID 3522 supports booting Mac OS X from a single drive or to a RAID 1 (Mirror) for that extra level of protection against a single drive failure. For faster performance, booting to RAID 0 (Striping) is supported and for even higher performance and protection, booting to RAID 5 and 6 (Single and Dual) parity are supported. The RocketRAID 3522 supports booting to Mac OS X 10.4.x (Tiger) and 10.5.x (Leopard) is supported.
