HD Optimized Performance
If youâ€™re working in HD, you need fast and reliable storage. If youâ€™re doing a lot of work in HD, you also need easy expandability and improved file protection. Available in configurations of 8TB, 16TB, 24TB, or 32TB, Sonnetâ€™s Fusion DX800RAID storage systems deliver breakthrough performance and proven data safety to meet those needs with affordable, direct attached disk arrays. Fusion DX800RAID storage systems are designed for work environments where high performance and fault tolerance are critical, and simple expandability a must. They are fast enough to easily handle uncompressed HD while protecting the data at the same time, yet flexible enough to be configured for any workflow.
Under real world use (drives 85% filled and fragmented) with its drives formatted as a RAID 5 group (eight drives striped with parity across all group members), a Fusion DX800RAID storage system is capable of single-stream 2K (2048 x 1556) LOG RGB capture and playback. It can achieve up to 1100 MB/sec read, 1000 MB/sec write (AJA Kona 1080HD test), fast enough to handle a single stream of uncompressed 10-bit 1080 4:4:4 HD, or multiple streams of ProRes 422, uncompressed 8-bit 1080 HD, DV, HDV, and DVCPRO video.
Raw data transfer rates are just one measure of a storage systemâ€™s abilities, but they donâ€™t tell the whole story. How many video streams can be transferred at the same time without dropping frames is another measure critical in determining overall performance, and one that can greatly impact your workflow. Fusion DX800RAID storage systems achieve high stream counts because of their ability to consistently and efficiently sustain data throughput, a result of incorporating ATTO Technologiesâ€™ exclusive Advanced Data Streaming (ADSâ„¢) Technology in the included Sonnet PCI Express® (PCIe) RAID controller card. ADS provides controlled acceleration of data transfers, compensating for transfer speed peaks and drops to maintain a consistent data flow, allowing more streams without dropped frames for the bandwidth available.
Enhanced Data Security
With drives formatted as a RAID 4, 5, 6, or DVRAIDâ„¢ protected group, Fusion DX800RAID storage systems provide data protection in the event of a drive failure (two drives when formatted as a RAID 6 group). You can configure your system to provide visual and audible alerts, including e-mail notification in the event of a drive failure. A drive can be swapped out and the RAID group rebuilt in hours, or you can tune the rebuild priority to deliver full read performance during the process to keep you working while the RAID group rebuilds in the background.
Fusion DX800RAID storage systems provide additional protection beyond basic data security. The Sonnet 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID controller employs ATTO Technologiesâ€™ exclusive DriveAssureâ„¢ Technology, which monitors drivesâ€™ I/O performance and performs periodic drive scans to map out and repair bad sectors and slow spots without failing the drive. This proactive maintenance enables the controller to compensate for instances when a RAID group does not respond to a command within a specified time, which could lead to degraded performance (e.g., dropped frames), or worse, the RAID group being failed.
