RocketRAID 2684 controller

Storage gear maker HighPoint has unveiled the RocketRAID 2684, its newest SATA/SAS-based RAID controller. The hardware uses an internal SFF-8087 connector, paired with an external SFF-8088 one. It supports SATA drives up to 1.5TB in size, and SAS drives spinning as fast as 15,000rpm.

The device uses a PCIe x4 bus, and supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, 50 and JBOD configurations; up to 128 devices can be attached using an SAS expander. Macs require Mac OS X 10.4 or later, though the controller can also be run on Linux, Windows and FreeBSD systems. Pricing must be obtained from retailers or from HighPoint.
