HighPoint Embraces Thunderbolt 2

While some companies argue that even the recent Thunderbolt 2 standard is too slow for graphics cards, it's more than sufficient for small scale enterprise storage. And if you have Thunderbolt 2 but need SAS, HighPoint is here to help.

The RocketStor 6328 links two Thunderbolt 2 connectors to two SAS devices or a dual-port SAS enclosure. But how far can we go with Thunderbolt?

Far enough to host up to four full-length controller cards and four internal drives within a compact external enclosure, namely HighPoint's NA211TB-LD.

    I have purchased several products from HighPoint and none of them worked properly. They also have no accountability, if it doesn't work, HighPoint does not feel obligated to fix the product.

    Thunderbolt is too bloody expensive for what it does, but what do you expect from Intel?
