HighPoint RocketRAID 2642 overview

  • 1Description

The HighPoint RocketRAID 2642 4-Channel PCI Express x4 SAS RAID Controller is a low-cost, SAS RAID HBA designed for use with desktop and workstation PCs. The RocketRAID 2642 is a high-performance SAS RAID solution, delivering reliability to demanding data-intensive applications such as tiered storage environments (Disk-to-Disk backup), security and surveillance, video editing, and digital content creation.

Support for both SAS and SATA 3 GB/s drives on the same controller maintains configuration optimization for performance based on the characteristics of SAS disk drives spinning at 15k RPMs and providing average seek time of 3.5msec  and  SATA disk drives that spin at 7.2k RPMs and provide average seek time of 9.5msec. The hybrid SATA configuration (2 SATA ports + 2 eSATA ports) supports up to 4 SAS/SATA HDDs and SSDs in a variety of RAID and non-RAID configurations including single disk, JBOD and RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10.

Comprehensive OS Support
The Rocket RAID 2642 supports all the major PC operating systems including Windows 7/2008/Vista, Linux distributions, Mac OS X and FreeBSD.
