HighPoint SSD7103 2nd Generation Bootable 4x M.2 NVMe RAID Controller

  • $449.00

Introducing the SSD7103 – The Ultimate NVMe Booting Solution

Powered by our next generation NVMe hardware architecture, industry-proven RAID stack, and comprehensive boot capability, the SSD7103 delivers unbeatable performance and versatility, all packaged in a compact device no larger than your average video adapter. The SSD7103 is a direct replacement for the SSD7102, and was designed for easy integration into any Intel based and AMD X399 desktop, server or workstation PC with a free, dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, and can deliver up to 14,000MB/s of transfer performance and support up to 4 individual boot volumes, in single-drive or RAID modes.

Ultra-High Performance NVMe Architecture

Like every HighPoint NVMe solution, the SSD7103 benefits from our market-proven, performance-focused NVMe hardware architecture, which delivers end to end PCIe 3.0 x16 bus bandwidth. 4x dedicated lanes are allocated to each M.2 port to ensure each SSD can interface directly with the host system’s CPU for maximum transfer performance, and immediate response time.

Satisfies any Budget, Performance or Capacity requirement

The SSD7103 is capable of supporting any mainstream MLC, TLC and QLC M.2 SSD in today’s marketplace. Customers are free to mix and match up to four drives to meet each application’s budget, performance or capacity requirement. SSD’s hosted by the SSD7103 can be configured to operate independently as either storage or boot volumes, or combined into one or more RAID arrays.

The SSD7103 is a simple and cost-effective NVMe performance upgrade for media workstation and server platforms.

Instead of a costly, time consuming motherboard upgrade, customers can easily integrate a compact PCIe device into their existing infrastructure. It enables any system with a current Intel-based motherboard to support bootable NVMe RAID configurations.

Expanded Compatibility

The second generation SSD7103 was designed for easy integration into industry standard motherboard platforms using off-the-shelf M.2 SSD’s. It has been extensively tested with a wide range of commercially available M.2 NVMe drives from all major manufacturers, including MLC, TLC & QLC models, in a variety of hardware environments across both Windows and Linux platforms.

Comprehensive Booting Support

Rapid-Boot: RAID 0 will both minimize boot-time and maximize transfer performance. Customers can configure up to 2 RAID 0 arrays, composed of 2 M.2 SSD’s, or a single large RAID 0 array using all four M.2 slots.

Secure-Boot: RAID 1, also known as mirroring, is ideal for applications that require additional layers of data security for their boot volumes. Customers can configure up to two RAID 1 arrays, comprised of two M.2 SSD’s, and set each to operate as a separate boot volume.

Security & Speed Boot: Customers can now configure bootable RAID 1/0 arrays. A RAID 1/0 configuration is comprised of two RAID 1 arrays, striped. The RAID 1 functionality ensures a duplicate copy of your data is available in case of failure, while the stripe (RAID 0) relationship boosts performance. RAID 1/0 requires 4 M.2 SSD’s.

Multi-Boot: Each M.2 SSD can be used independently, if RAID is not desired or required. Customers are free to install a different operating system to each volume.

Streamlined RAID Storage Management

The SSD7103 includes a full-featured RAID management interface with TRIM support, SMART monitoring, and total Terabyte Written (TBW) tracking. TRIM support promotes the longevity and endurance of NVMe storage by enabling each SSD to handle garbage collection more efficiently, which helps eliminate write speed degradation. SMART monitoring allows you to check a variety of physical attributes of each NVMe SSD, including temperature readings, voltage and TBW. The interface updates attribute data in real time, and can be even be configured to notify you by Email, in the event of an error condition or threshold warning. Customers can also check the lane assignment of the SSD7103 controller, in order to monitor available PCIe bandwidth and maximize the performance potential of your NVMe storage.
