The Fastest External Desktop Storage - 14,000MB/s! Powered by M.2 NVMe SSD's Blistering 14,000 MB/s Transfer Performance! 4x Faster than Thunderbolt™ 3! Up to four M.2 NVMe SSD's PCIe 3.0 x16 Host Interface Windows, Linux & macOS platforms The SSD6540M is designed for professional grade, performance-hungry applications that demand uncompromised transfer bandwidth. The unique NVMe architecture provides dedicated PCIe 3.0 x4 bandwidth for each drive-bay; this allows each M.2 SSD to interface directly with the platform's CPU, and deliver sustained transfer performance in excess of 14,000MB/s - faster than any other external desktop RAID storage solution in today's marketplace! PCIe Gen3 x16 NVMe RAID Turnkey Solution The SSD6540M is the industry's first external NVMe storage solution to deliver uncompromised end-to-end PCIe Gen 3.0 x16 transfer bandwidth. Our innovative external data cables work in conjunction with the removable M.2 drive bays to deliver dedicated PCIe 3.0 x4 transfer bandwidth; this unique, performance-focused architecture ensures each M.2 SSD operates at peak performance. The SSD6540M is a complete, stand-alone solution, and includes a 4-Bay NVMe M.2 enclosure, PCIe 3.0 x16 controller card with external SFF-8644 connectors, two SFF- 8644 PCIe Gen3 x8 data cables, and all necessary fastening and power accessories. Powered by Proven RAID Technology The SSD6540M is powered by our industry proven NVMe RAID technology, and can accommodate a variety of RAID and non-RAID storage configurations, including single M.2 SSD's and multiple RAID arrays. RAID 0: Also known as a "stripe" array. This mode delivers Maximum Performance, and requires 2 to 4 M.2 SSD's. RAID 1: This mode creates a hidden duplicate of the target M.2 SSD, and requires 2 drives. RAID 1/0: Mirrored Stripe arrays. This mode requires 4 M.2 SSD's - it will mirror the data of one stripe array to a second, hidden stripe array for security. Robust & Simple NVMe RAID Management Each SSD6540M RAID Enclosure includes a simple, intuitive web-based management interface. A Quick Configuration menu allows new users to get everything up and running with a few simple clicks. Experienced Pros can fine tune configurations for specific applications using the Advanced Options menu. Integrated TRIM & S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring with Terabyte Written (TBW) Tracking: TRIM streamlines performance and expands the lifespan of NVMe storage by enabling each SSD to handle garbage collection more efficiently, which helps eliminate write speed degradation. S.M.A.R.T. monitoring allows you to check the temperature, voltage and TBW of each NVMe SSD. Rapidly Adapts to Changing Workflows The SSD6540M's flexible architecture enables you to adapt or transform NVMe storage to meet the needs of each application. A single SSD6540M enclosure can be shared between multiple desktops and workstations - the included controller card is also available as a standalone accessory, and can be installed into any system with a free dedicated PCIe 3.0 x16 slot. In addition, M.2 SSD's hosted by the SSD6540M can be installed into any M.2 capable SSD7100 series RAID controller; your array and data will remain intact and accessible.
