Multiple Drives, No Compromise

Digital content creation and editing requires more speed and space than standard desktop drives are capable—why limit yourself to a single drive? Sonnets award-winning Fusion™ D400Q desktop and R400Q rackmount storage systems provide 2 or 3 TB* of storage in four swappable drive modules, and four ways to connect them to a computer. They offer speed, versatility, and reliability—theyre great solutions for anyone looking for an affordable storage system that will fit into a variety of workflows.

Maximum Performance, Maximum Convenience

Connected to a Sonnet Tempo SATA E4P PCIe or X4P PCI-X adapter installed in a Mac or Windows computer, a Fusion D400Q or R400Q systems drives can be accessed through its port multiplier(1) at maximum speed, whether configured as RAID 0, 1, 10, or JBOD set. A single Fusion D400Q or R400Q system with its drives configured as a RAID 0 striped set achieves 220MB/sec, fast enough to support multiple streams of DV, HDV, DVCPRO, or a single stream of uncompressed 10-bit NTSC video. Do you want even more performance? Up to four Fusion D400Q or R400Q systems can be ganged on a single Tempo SATA E4P or X4P adapter to for double, triple, or even quadruple the available streams (as well as increasing the number of supported video formats).

One Cable, Four Drives

Fusion D400Q and R400Q enclosures employ a high performance SATA II port multiplier to manage the enclosed drives—just a single cable connects the enclosure to a SATA host controller card. This efficient interface simplifies setup and cuts cable clutter without compromising performance.No SATA? No problem—connected via a single FireWire 800, FireWire 400, or USB cable, all four drives can be accessed at the full speed of the respective interface. There is no need to reformat when changing from one interface to another, regardless the configuration.

Driving Force

Fusion storage systems employ Enterprise/RAID Edition hard drives. These drives are subjected to hours of additional, stringent testing to check for soft errors, vibration, and other reliability predictors—just the sturdiest drives pass these tests and are prepared with special RAID-optimized firmware. Enterprise/RAID drives offer higher MTBF (mean time between failure) specs, carry longer warranties than “desktop” drives, and are the building blocks of a super-reliable Fusion storage system. Need even more storage space? For added convenience, the swappable drive modules are compatible across the Fusion line, and additional modules may be purchased separately.

Versatile Performance

These systems are ideal for use in mixed environments—various operating systems, editing applications and output demands requiring the flexibility and interoperability that Fusion D400Q and R400Q storage systems provide. Fusion storage systems support Mac OS X, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Linux. They are compatible with capture cards from AJA, Blackmagic Design, Matrox, and Bluefish444, and work with all mainstream video editing applications including Apple Final Cut Pro, and Adobe Premiere Pro CS3.

Desktop or Rackmount

The Fusion D400Q systems compact enclosure integrates an ultra-quiet, swappable fan module that is 80% quieter than a standard case fan, making this system perfectly suited for use in noise-sensitive environments. The 1U rackmount Fusion R400Q system enclosure, at just 1.75" tall, is simple to deploy in most server racks. Both systems feature drive presence and drive activity LED indicators on their front panels, so drive status can be determined at a glance.
