When looking for a JBOD solution (NOTE: This is the non-raid card), I needed a compact card that would support a large number of devices while using efficient external cable connectors. This card allows connection of 8 SATA devices and by using SFF-8088 cables between the host system (the system that contains the card) to the drive array system (the case that contains the drives).

Initially, there were a number of problems. In reality, though I did not realize it at the time, the problems had nothing to do with the card but the resulting impact definitely impacted drive access performance.

After a lot of digging and research, and yes, with feedback from the HighPoint team (via messages on their ticketing system - no direct voice communication), great progress was made that ultimately found the problem and got this working.

Here is a summary of my findings and the final resolution to the problem:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: The information provided here is based on OpenSuSE linux distro.

Problem #1:
==========
Unable to recognize any drives connected to the controller.

Resolution #1:
============
Found and downloaded the driver source code for the OK and kernel I was running. This took some digging to find but eventually found it.

Problem #2:
==========
After some time, access to ALL drives connected to the HighPoint 2722 controller gets very very slow.

Key Observations:
===============
The HighPoint 2722 controller was sharing INT 16 with the USB controller. I have also noticed that USB I/O gets very very slow once this condition happens.

Bought this to replace a couple of ancient promise sata cards in my home file server. Even though the specs claim to support linux, immediately after install no drives were recognized. Although there are rhel-style os drivers on the cd, I was not able to install the precompiled drivers. Grabbing the source and compiling and mucking around with modprobe allowed me to insmod mv94xx.ko, but a reboot immediately wiped that and the only way around it was to set up a script to execute the insmod, since adding it to modprobe.d failed. On top of that, once the drives did get mounted, within a short period the drives would start being remounted ro, and e2fsck had very unfriendly things to say about the scans. Running e2fsck -c took 30 hours (just for the badblocks check) on some of the drives. I had none of these problems when directly connected via the promise dinosaur cards. Based on the reviews and feedback I've since read around the web I'm chalking this up to highpoint's stellar linux driver (non-)support and returning this card. Will spend quite a bit more and get an LSI, have used those at work for years and haven't had many problems with them, and what problems I did have, techsupport was extremely helpful about working with me to resolve them. I am disappointed, but as a fellow sysad remarked, I got what I paid for.

I couldn't get the Rocket 2722 controller card to recognize my HP P2000 storage array. After a couple days of trying different settings, card positions, etc., HighPoint confirmed that it was not supported. I ended up going with with the HP SC08e 6gb 2port SAS that I knew worked but was $100 more expensive. From the description, I thought that these products were comparable.

I'm giving them stars, not because the product it worked for me but because customer service worked through the issue and let me know it wasn't going to work for my situation.

The item is fairly priced and I have had no problem with it working with either my Windows 8 Pro set up or my Mac Pro 2010 running OS X Mountain Lion. I have connected the card to two OWC Mercury Rack Pro's with 1 meter SAS cables. I use Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X and the software works flawlessly reading and writing too my NTFS formatted disks (4 per Mercury Rack Pro).
