Add the speed and storage capabilities of Thunderbolt 3 and RAID to your Windows system using the RocketStor 6618T 8-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Enclosure from HighPoint. It is well suited for not only 4K workflows, but also increased performance and protection. The RocketStor 6618T supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and JBOD, each of which will provide users with performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. The 6618T is equipped with an integrated RAID-on-Chip storage processor and 512MB of DDR3 cache memory with ECC protection. Using Turbo RAID technology, this enclosure is able to utilize the host system's surplus CPU and memory resources to enhance transfer speeds, which can reach up to 2,700 MB/s in RAID 0 and 2,400 MB/s in RAID 5.
The RocketStor 6618T has 8 drive bays that support 3.5" and 2.5" SATA hard drives and SSDs. All the drive bays feature LEDs noting power, activity, failure, and identify, all of which help report on the status of each drive. The 6618T is also equipped with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, which allow for daisy-chaining up to six independent RocketStor 6618T units or other peripherals, such as dual 4K displays, using a single Thunderbolt 3 host port. Thunderbolt 3 operates at 40 Gb/s, which allows simultaneous bi-directional transfer speeds at up to 20 Gb/s.
The 6618T has been designed with a user-friendly and browser-based RAID Storage Management Suite that allows users to configure, monitor, maintain, and troubleshoot RAID configurations and individual storage devices. Advanced Management Features will allow users to configure E-mail notifications to inform users of changing storage conditions while outside of the work environment and manage storage remotely via a local network connection. Additionally, it is possible to schedule RAID verification sessions and a Storage Health Inspector (SHI) will help to maintain the health of the entire system. Included with this RAID are 8 x drive trays, 1 x Thunderbolt 3 cable, 1 x UL Power Cord, 32 x 3.5" HDD mounting screws, and 32 x 2.5" SSD mounting screws. Using a separately sold adapter, the RocketStor 6618T may be used with Thunderbolt 2 interfaces, and the supported operating systems are Windows Server 2000 and later, Windows 8 and later, and Mac OS X 10.10 and later.
