External SAS 6Gb/s Storage for PC and Mac
The RocketRAID 2711 delivers enterprise management and connectivity features at entry level costs. The industry standard external Mini-SAS port (SFF-8088) simplifies installation procedures and is compatible with a range of storage devices available for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and Mac platforms, including the recent Mac OS X Lion. The low-profile design allows the card to be integrated into a variety of rack-mount and chassis designs.
The RocketRAID 2711 can support SAS and SATA devices in a multitude of configurations, including non-RAID JBODs, single disks, and RAID arrays including 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 and 50, and includes Highpoint's Unified Web-Based Management interface, which allows to configure, manage and monitor storage configurations.
Integration with Existing Storage Infrastructure
The RocketRAID 2711 is backwards compatible with SAS/SATA 3Gb/s devices, PCI-Express 1.0 motherboards, and can be integrated into existing storage infrastructure. Clients benefit from the upgrade path; storage configurations can be scaled, shared, and migrated between all RR2700 series HBA's, including future product releases." - via storagenewsletter.com
