HighPoint RocketRAID 2340 Controller – Supporting 12,000GB of storage
Posted by News-Bot on January 18th 2007



Today we are going to take a close look at one of HighPoint’s very latest controllers and it’s one of the most impressive ones we’ve looked at so far, the RocketRAID 2340. Coming in at a little under $500 USD, it’s certainly not a cheap product but its feature list is neither short. Using special Mini-SAS connectors, it allows you to add up to an extra 16 SATA or SATA II hard drives to your system and run in a range of different RAID modes including 0, 1, 5, 10, 50 and JBOD. In fact, it has not just one but two controller chips on the card, which is powered by the PCI Express x8 slot for plenty of bandwidth throughput for extreme storage requirements.Clearly it is designed more for small to medium-sized businesses with quite serious storage requirements. If you’ve got some cash to spend and are looking for a high-end controller card, which currently gives you the ability to store at least a whooping 12,000 gigabytes of data, using a total of 16 x 750GB drives (I just hope you have a monster-sized case...), you’ve come to the right place! Let’s get started and take a close look at the RocketRAID 2340 product from HPT and see if it is worth the asking price and just how it performs against other recent onboard motherboard controllers in RAID 0 and non-RAID environments.
