    Rear View

    • Supports up to four 2.5" U.2 NVMe SSD's
    • PCIe 3.0 x16 Host Interface
    • Up to 8Gb/s Transfer Speed per Lane
    • Supports RAID 0, 1, 5 and 1/0
    • Designed for Linux Kernel 3.3 or later, Windows 10 x64 or Server 2016 platforms

    Industry's First End-to- End PCIe 3.0 x16 External NVMe RAID Storage Solution

    The SSD6540 is the industry's first external NVMe storage solution to deliver uncompromised end-to-end PCIe Gen 3.0 x16 transfer bandwidth. Each of the 4 drive bays features dedicated PCIe 3.0 x4 bus bandwidth to ensure each U.2 SSD operates at peak performance. The SSD6540 is offered as a complete, stand-alone solution, and includes a compact 4-Bay NVMe U.2 enclosure, PCIe 3.0 x16 controller card with external SFF-8644 connectors, two SFF- 8644 8x data cables, and all necessary fastening and power accessories. Any PC platform with a free, dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 slot can now experience the true performance capabilities of NVMe technology.

    Uncompromised NVMe Performance Architecture

    Unlike onboard DMI 3.0 based NVMe solutions, which are forced to share a single PCIe 3.0 x4 lane with the motherboard's SATA and USB ports, the SSD6540 features dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 bus bandwidth.

    This unique architecture allocated PCIe 3.0 x4 bandwidth for each bay, which enables each U.2 SSD to interface directly with the platform's CPU.

    Industry Proven RAID Technology

    HighPoint's Turbo RAID architecture delivers class leading cost/performance benefits, featuring the industry's most affordable, high-performance RAID 0 and 5 support. Customers can easily configure one or more RAID arrays to satisfy the demands of a variety of high-density storage applications including media production and rendering, scientific / R&D platforms and developmental workstations.

    Built-in LCD screen Streamlines Monitoring & Maintenance

    Each SSD6540 features a built-in LCD screen that displays the enclosure's environmental conditions in real-time. Customers can quickly access the temperature of the storage configuration and adjust fan speed to ensure the NVMe drives stay healthy and run optimally. In addition, a built in error alarm can be set to activate in the case of temperature or enclosure related warning or failure.

    Compact, Portable Form Factor

    U.2 NVMe SSD's are far more flexible than their M.2 counterparts, and can be easily installed into any 2.5" drive bay. The SSD6540's compact enclosure supports up to 4 M.2 drives, and features removable drive trays to streamline integration and simplify maintenance or upgrade procedures.
    The SSD6540's 4-Bay chassis is ideal for applications that require a compact, portable storage solution. Customers can easily move the enclosure and RAID controller to any system with a PCIe 3.0 x16 slot. The SSD6540 can be moved freely between multiple workstations, or transported to a client's location to live-demo a media project or deliver finished product.
