Sonnet Offers 4-Drive SATA System

LAS VEGAS -- Sonnet Technologies today announced the Fusion R400P four-drive RAID SATA rackmount storage system, an economical and easy-to-deploy solution for flexible, high-performance storage in studio, control room, and mobile installations. Available in configurations from 0TB to 6TB, Fusion R400P features a fast eSATA interface with an integrated port multiplier for single cable to host connectivity, and high performance, low noise fans that make it suitable for use in noise-sensitive environments.

Based on Sonnet’s award-winning Fusion R400Q quad interface storage system, the Fusion R400P sets up quickly and supports simple software-configured storage according to the user’s needs: RAID 0 storage for speed (up to 220 MB/sec with four drives), RAID 1 for redundancy, and JBOD for audio editing and archiving. The unit’s fast eSATA interface offers a significant improvement in data transfer speeds when compared with FireWire® 800, FireWire 400, or USB connections.

When used along with a high performance SATA controller card, such as Sonnet’s Tempo™ SATA E4P, Tempo SATA X4P, or Tempo SATA Pro ExpressCard/34, the Fusion R400P can support multiple streams of ProRes HD video. Requiring only a single eSATA cable connection to the host controller via an integrated port multiplier, the 1U Fusion R400P SATA drive enclosure installs quickly and cleanly in most racks and serves as an attractive low-profile unit when used on the desktop. The included Sonnet eSATA cable locks to prevent accidental disconnection.
