This adapter is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which provide bi-directional speeds of 40 Gb/s. While one port is used to interface with your host system, the other can be used to daisy-chain up to six devices together, including dual 4K displays or a single 5K display, thanks to support for DisplayPort 1.2.

In addition to the Thunderbolt 3 ports, the RocketStor 6661A-mSAS1 has one mini-SAS (SFF-8088) port which supports four SATA III 6 Gb/s channels, and each channel is able to support one SATA hard drive or SSD at capacities of up to 14TB per drive, or 56TB total. Attached drives can also be configured as a RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 array, each of which provides performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD and non-RAID modes are available.

HighPoint's RocketStor 6661A-mSAS1 Thunderbolt 3 to Mini-SAS Port Adapter is compatible with Thunderbolt 2 devices, as well as USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0), and USB 2.0 using a USB Type-C cable. Please be aware that any daisy-chain connections will terminate if a peripheral or device is connected via USB Type-C. Included is a Thunderbolt 3 cable, a 60W / 100-240 VAC external power supply, and a power cord. Protection is provided by a limited 1-year parts & labor warranty.

General Features

Affordable Thunderbolt 3 to Mini-SAS RAID Storage Solution

The Rocketstor 6661A-mSAS1 is an affordable Thunderbolt 3 to mini-SAS storage connectivity solution. The single mini-SAS connector (SFF-8088) and four 6 Gb/s SATA channels enable Thunderbolt 3 platforms to support external drive enclosures via mini-SAS to mini-SAS or mini-SAS to 4 x eSATA cables.

Integrated Value RAID Technology

The RocketStor 6661A-mSAS1's integrated RAID 5 capability is well-suited for cost-conscious storage applications that require a high level of data security. HighPoint Value RAID solutions were designed to take full advantage of modern computing hardware environments, which provide ample memory and computing resources, to order to deliver affordable redundant RAID storage protection for a variety of applications.

Works with Thunderbolt 3 Windows and Mac Systems

Like all HighPoint Thunderbolt 3 I/O Solutions, the RocketStor 6661A-mSAS1 was designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. Four 6 Gb/s SATA ports can be added to most Thunderbolt 3 Windows or Mac systems using a single cable connection. The slim enclosure includes a pre-installed SATA RAID controller, and extensive driver support is available for both Windows and Mac platforms.

Compatible with macOS RAID Arrays & RocketRAID Configurations

Designed to simplify and streamline storage integration for Thunderbolt 3 platforms, the RocketStor 6661A-mSAS1 is fully backwards compatible with all previous and current HighPoint RAID controllers, and includes built-in support for Apple RAID configurations created with the macOS Disk Utility. This delivers a mini-SAS storage solution that is convenient, flexible, and and secure.

Comprehensive RAID & Storage Management Interface

The RocketStor 6661A-mSAS1 includes HighPoint's intuitive web-based management suite which enables user-friendly configurations up to four SATA drives and 56TB of storage into one or more RAID configurations. A wide range of proactive maintenance and monitoring capabilities work to help ensure the health of RAID storage investments and minimize downtime. With a few simple clicks, users can check available storage capacity, the condition of any arrays and all hosted drives, and enable auto-rebuild and hot spare features that add additional layers of data security to redundant arrays. Users can also schedule maintenance sessions to verify disk integrity and enable e-mail notifications to inform one or more users of changing storage conditions while outside of the work environment.
