Storage vendor HighPoint has announced the availability of the RocketStor 631xA eight- and four-Bay Hardware RAID towers.

HighPoint technologies has launched a Mac mini server chassis -- the HighPoint NA338TB 16-Bay, Ultra-Compact Storage and PCIe Expansion Rackmount Solution.

HighPoint has debuted its next generation USB Host-to-Device storage and connectivity product lines, featuring 10Gb/s transfer speeds. The latest RocketU PCIe host adapter provides a USB 3.1 upgrade for any Mac or PC platform with PCIe slots. Additionally, the company's performance-oriented dual-bay USB 3.1 RocketStor 3100 Series Drive Docks support any industry standard 3.5- or 2.5-inch SATA hard drive or SSD, including the latest 8TB models, and provide USB 3.1 connectivity via USB Type-B and Type-C ports, depending on model.
HighPoint Technologies continues to expand its USB 3.0 product portfolio, and has unveiled the RocketStor 5411D USB 3.0 Drive Dock and Hub. The palm-sized docking station combines multiple USB 3.0 ports, a card-reader, SATA drive dock, and universal charging station into a single device.
Like it or not, the shift to Thunderbolt is underway. The connection is extremely flexible, allowing for video and data to co-habitate on the fast-speed bus. The problem is that the introduction of new ports doesn't preclude the need to use old ports. Highpoint has a solution for those eSATA drive cases in the Thunderbolt 2 RocketStor 6324L host adapter for eSATA devices. Bridging devices for older connectors can be expensive, and sometimes its worth it to replace the enclosure instead -- does the value equation hold up for this speed-oriented adapter? Check our review to find out.
