Highpoint RocketCache 3420X8 caching solution now shipping
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
HighPoint Technologies is now shipping the RocketCache 3240X8; the next-generation SSD caching solution for high-performance Mac and PC platforms.Ordinary caching solutions limit performance gains to specific applications, restrict configurations to a single hard disk and SSD pair, or are exclusive to particular storage device. HighPoint’s RocketCache allows you to create your own high-performance storage solution using off the shelf hard disks and SSDs. Capitalizing on HighPoint’s industry-proven RAID technology, RocketCache HBA’s can aggregate multiple SSDs and hard disks into single storage units, in order to maximize transfer speeds or data security.
RocketCache HBA’s provide the tools PC enthusiasts need to take full advantage of SSD accelerated hard drive storage. Mix and match combinations of hard disks and SSDs as you see fit: double-up 2 hard disks with 2 SSDs for fast, high-security data storage, or link up to 3 SSDs to supercharge the read and write performance of your high-capacity hard drive.
Select one of four selectable Caching Modes, and custom-tailor a storage solution that best matches your specific configuration. Link a single SSD with multiple hard disks to maximize data security and take full advantageof the SSD’s superior transfer speeds, or aggregate transfer bandwidth by striping cache across multiple, inexpensive SSDs.
