Sonnet Technologies to introduce Sonnet Fusion DX800RAID at NAB
At the 2009 NAB Show, Sonnet Technologies will introduce the Fusion DX800RAID, an eight-drive RAID SATA storage system with a built-in SAS expander that enables up to 16 eight-drive enclosures to connect to a single Sonnet RAID controller.
The system is designed to offer fast, easy and cost-effective expansion of storage capacity without concern for the number of available PCI Express slots. A single Fusion DX800RAID provides the speed required for working with uncompressed 10-bit 1080 HD video streams and the data security and monitoring critical in a large RAID system. With its eight drives formatted as a RAID 5 group, a Fusion DX800RAID yields read and write transfer speeds up to 680MB/s and 640MB/s, respectively.
