HighPoint has developed a new RAID solution based on SAS and SATA hard drives that it hopes will "revolutionize DAS applications." The RocketRAID 2720C2 6Gb/s SAS/SATA Cross-Sync RAID Solution allows users to combine 16 hard drives connected to two 2720C2 cards into a single RAID array. The RAID array is created across dual PCIe x8 slots and allows for transfer speeds up to 4GB/s. Speed of that magnitude is suitable for the most demanding data needs, including "HD media projects, video streaming devices, and A/V post production workstations." The RocketRAID 2720C2 is available this month at an MSRP of $400.
