RocketStor 6661A-NVMe -Your Choice To Add up to 4x NVMe SSDs!

Posted by Eric Wang on

The RocketStor 6661A-NVMe is an ultra-compact, modular & portable Thunderbolt™ 3 to NVMe storage solution that features an integrated SSD7101A-1 PCIe 3.0 x16 NVMe RAID controller. The RocketStor 6661A-NVMe allows you to quickly add up to four high-performance M.2 NVMe SSD’s to any system with Thunderbolt™ 3 capability.

Scalable Solution supports any M.2 SSD

HighPoint NVMe solutions won't restrict you to a single brand of SSD or limit capacity. Unlike most NVMe solutions which tie a single SSD to an AIC module, the RS6661A-NVMe supports up to 4 off-the-shelf M.2 NVMe SSD’s. Each SSD can be configured to operate independently or as part of a RAID 0, 1, 5 or 10 array.

The integrated NVMe controller is modular and capable of operating independently of the chassis. It can be easily connected to any Thunderbolt™ 3 laptops or installed into a desktop PC with a free PCIe 3.0 x16 slot. Our performance focused NVMe architecture with four independent M.2 ports, integrated RAID support and dedicated Thunderbolt 3™ transfer bandwidth enables the RocketStor 6661A-NVMe to deliver up to 2800MB/s of real-world, sustained transfer speed. Users can opt to use each SSD independently, or configure them into one or more RAID arrays using the SSD7101A-1 RAID controller or OS-based RAID support.

The RocketStor 6661A-NVMe has been qualified with a wide range of NVMe SSD’s, including Samsung’s 970 EVO and PRO series, and the Kingston KC1000 series. The four independent M.2 ports enable users to upgrade as needed, mix/match M.2 drives, and scale storage to meet the changing requirements of each project.

HighPoint NVMe Manager with Integrated TRIM & SMART Monitoring

The RocketStor 6661A-NVMe includes our intuitive NVMe Manager interface, which allows users of any experience level quickly configure the M.2 SSDs into RAID arrays or as stand-alone drives. TRIM support promotes the longevity and endurance of each SSD while SMART monitoring allows customers to keep close tabs on the physical attributes of each device, including temperature readings, total bytes written, and disk usage values; essential tools for planning, configuring, and maintaining mission-critical SSD storage. 

Removable, Cross-Platform NVMe RAID Module

RocketStor 6661A-NVMe's NVMe controller is a modular component that can be easily removed from the compact chassis and installed directly into any PC platform with PCIe 3.0 x16 slots. In this mode, the NVMe RAID controller can deliver truly astounding levels of performance, with speeds exceeding 13,000 MB/s!

When using the SSD7101A-1 as a stand-alone module, NVMe RAID Manager can help you identify the maximum NVMe performance potential of your PC platform, and make sure that the controller is installed into a slot that provides true PCIe 3.0 x16 electrical bandwidth.

  • It states that you can mix and match drives. Does this apply if the SSD’s are different sizes (capacity)?

  • Is the 2800MB/s reached with Samsung 970 PRO? Or is it a different SSD that was used to reach that performance?
