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. It can achieve up to 1300 MB/sec read, 1385 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.
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
What happens if a drive does fail? In most instances, a protected RAID group rebuilds using data on the remaining drives. Protected RAID groups using high capacity drives face a greater risk of a second or third drive failure during a RAID group rebuild. When this occurs, most storage systems fail the RAID group and take it offline, making the data inaccessible. DriveAssure can recover data when other methods have failed. Its data recovery modes enable access to data in offline RAID groups so you can copy it to a new RAID group or continue working with it in the case of a soft drive failure. This ability can potentially mean the difference between the loss of a single file versus all of your assets.
8TB, 16TB, 24TB, or 32TB to startâ€”it's your choice. When you need to grow your storage capacity, wouldn't you like a system that's expandable without hassle? Sonnet's got you covered. When your job calls for access to more than 24TB of files at a time, Sonnet offers an economical upgrade path that is simple to deployâ€”Fusion DX800RAID Expansion storage systems. Each DX800RAID storage system features an internal SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) expander that enables you to connect additional DX800RAID enclosures in a daisy chain, no additional RAID controller card needed. This simplifies installation and significantly reduces your cost to expand capacity. Of course, if your needs are simpler, each system includes user-swappable drive modules so you can easily change sets of drives as you go.
Fusion DX800RAID storage systems integrate an ultra-quiet Vantec Stealthâ„¢ fan. This fan is 80% quieter than a standard case fan, making this system well suited for use in noise-sensitive environments.
Fusion DX800RAID enclosures link to the Sonnet RAID controller with robust mini-SAS to mini-SAS connector cables that lock securely at both ends.
Fusion DX800RAID systems support RAID 4 (DVRAID), 5, 6, and 10 for balanced performance and protection, RAID 1 for ultimate redundancy, and RAID 0 for pure, unadulterated speed; JBOD support is available, too. Fusion DX800RAID systems even support hot sparesâ€”you can set up your RAID group so that one or more designated hot spare drives wait unused in the background to automatically replace a failed drive without you having to lift a finger.
The heart of a Fusion DX800RAID storage system is the Sonnet 6Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID controller. Offering eight lanes of PCIe 2.0 connectivity, this powerhouse adapter is based on the latest-generation Marvell® 88RC9580 RAID-on-Chip (ROC) processor, which handles the throughput from all the drives with plenty of overhead. The Sonnet 6Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID controller is configured with 512MB of ECC-protected cache memory, especially important to maintain data stream writes as the disk array nears capacity.
