Sonnet Safeguards Data

IRVINE, Calif. -- Sonnet Technologies' Fusion D800RAID desktop SATA storage system has been adopted by design and post-production house Mad Media to ensure secure, convenient, and cost-effective data storage. Mad Media creates branded content based largely on client-sponsored action and motor sports athletes, such as Subaru Rally Team USA® driver Travis Pastrana and Red Bull®-sponsored, SCORE International® athlete Andy McMillin. The Fusion D800RAID system provides Mad Media with reliable storage of its unique high definition (HD) video not only for use in Web content, but also for national television ad campaigns, feature-length film projects, and new mobile technology platforms like the Apple® iPhone™.

"I have very closely monitored the progression of 'low-cost' data solutions for professional video applications for the past few years, and Sonnet's Fusion D800RAID product was the first to offer RAID 5 redundancy with a storage capacity of more than 6TB and throughput exceeding 500 MB/sec," said Joshua Martelli, director of TV/film at Mad Media. "We waited for the product to come to market, and we've been thrilled with the result. The Fusion D800RAID system gives us a central repository from which our editors can access the same data simultaneously, and it's allowed us to organize footage more effectively, safeguarding content from future loss while increasing our productivity."
