Leading motherboard makers often supply SSD expander adapters that can house two or four M.2 drives for those who want to run them in RAID for performance, capacity, and/or reliability/redundancy. However, M.2 drives don’t provide enough storage capacity for modern servers and heavy-duty workstations, so HighPoint has introduced its new SSD RAID controller card that can house up to eight E1.S drives providing unbeatable capacity and performance. We are talking about tens of terabytes of storage at up to 55 GBps. Speaking of performance, HighPoint says that when equipped with high-end E1.S drives, its SSD7749E E1.S RAID Controller Card can deliver throughput of up to 28 GB/s (which is likely the practical limitation of a PCIe Gen4 x16 interface with 128b/130b encoding overhead taken into account). Yet, when two SSD7749E E1.S RAID boards are installed into one system, they can work in Cross-Sync RAID configurations and deliver transfer bandwidth of up to 55 GB/s. The E1.S form-factor is used by datacenter SSDs that are designed to support consistently high sequential and random performance. The rated 28 GBps and 55 GBps sequential read/write speeds are peak performance numbers achievable for a limited amount of time depending on the size of the… Read full this story
