Highpoint SSD6204A RAID controller PCI Express x8 3.0 8 Gbit/s
HighPoint SSD6200 Series NVMe RAID Controllers are ideal for professional applications that require a bootable storage solution with host-level redundant RAID capability and native in-box driver support. SSD6200 Series controllers were designed to maximize uptime of the host platform and ease the of integration and maintenance of NVMe RAID Storage. In addition, a wide range of solution packages are available for the professional VAR; customers can opt for either 2 and 4 dedicated M.2 device ports, integrated Host RAID 1, 0 & JBOD support, optional OOB management when outside of the OS platform, LED RAID status & I/O indication, UEFI/BIOS/CLI/GUI management interfaces, and Half-Height or Full-Height form factors. Native hardware support ensures seamless OS Installation & Upgrades HighPoint SSD6200 series controllers enable professional solutions providers to seamlessly configure bootable, redundant RAID storage for a wide range of customer applications. Native In-Box Driver support is available all major Virtualization platforms, such as VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and Promox, and all current versions and distributions of Windows, Linux and FreeBSD operating systems. Customers are free to update the Kernel, apply patches, or download and install scheduled updates as needed, without fear of data loss or the need for complicated procedures. Integrated Host RAID Technology HighPoint Industrial and Virtualization solutions feature integrated host, hardware-level RAID 0, 1 and JBOD capability. RAID arrays hosted by SSD6200 series controllers are fully transparent and will be automatically recognized by all current VM and OS platforms as available single-drives. No drivers, special procedures or software application is required. Maximum Uptime Though simple, RAID 1 mirroring technology remains one of the most effective way to secure a bootable storage configuration against the threat of device failure. RAID 1 creates a hidden, automated backup of the target drive; in this case, a bootable NVMe SSD. If the original should fail, the mirrored backup will immediately, and seamlessly, take the reins. This enables the host system to remain online, and continue to operate, unabated. Configure arrays with the flip of a switch! No IT background? No problem! SSD6200 controllers are ideal for users of any skill level. Customers don't need to master a complicated RAID application to configure NVMe storage. Optimizes Production Workflows One-Click RAID Creation enables Solution Providers and VAR’s to optimize production workflows. The onboard RAID switch completely flattens the learning curve by eliminating the need for an interface or application. You don’t even need an OS or input devices! Simply install the SSD’s, plug in the card, power on the system and toggle the switch! RAID Switch Settings Each controller features two hardware switches which can be used to configure one of 3 arrays modes (Mirroring, Striping and JBOD). OOB (out-of-band) RAID Management SSD6202A & SSD6204A controllers provide an out-of-band management port and integrated console management interface. OOB is ideal for field maintenance and on-site services as it allows the RAID storage to be administered in a pre OS environment. OOB is well suited to secure Data Center and Hosting applications, as it only grants access to the NVMe RAID console and configuration; it cannot interact with user data in any way. LED Indication The SSD6202A & SSD6204A provide LED indicators which enable administrators to quickly determine the status of the NVMe SSDs, RAID array, and PCIe host connection.
