HighPoint Launches the 2nd Generation USB 3.0 Storage Dock@ 2013/08/26
HighPoint's innovative dual-5Gb/s bay architecture and UAS support deliver an unprecedented level of transfer bandwidth for a USB-based storage solution. The RocketStor 5422 is the industry's fastest dual-bay USB 3.0 storage dock, and is ideal for high-speed 6Gb/s SATA SSD's and 4TB hard drives.
UAS (USB Attached SCSI) is a computer protocol that is used to transfer data to and from USB storage devices such as hard drives, solid state drives (SSDs) and thumb/flash drives. UAS is dependent on the USB protocol, and utilizes the standard SCSI command set. UAS offers maximized bandwidth utilization, and can handle multiple data transfer requests simultaneously, unlike the slower queue system of BOT (Bulk Only Transport), which only provides single-task commands - each task must complete before the next begins. As a result, USB 3.0 connections working in UASP mode result in higher transfer speeds and lower CPU utilization. UAS clears data queues faster, which results in smoother-operating PCs.
