HD Optimized Performance

Whether youre editing a project on your own, or running a facility with multiple edit stations, you need fast and reliable storage if youre working in HD. Sonnets award-winning Fusion D800RAID storage systems provide breakthrough performance and data safety in the form of affordable, transportable, local RAID storage systems for the desktop. Designed for work environments where performance and fault tolerance are critical, Fusion D800RAID storage systems are fast enough to easily handle uncompressed HD while protecting the data at the same time, yet flexible enough to be configured for any workflow.

With drives formatted as a RAID 4, RAID 5, or DV RAID group, Fusion D800RAID systems offer fail-safe protection in the event of a drive failure. You can set up your system to provide visual and audible alerts, including e-mail notification. A drive can be swapped out and the RAID rebuilt in 2 or 3 hours (4 or 6TB configurations*, respectively), or you can continue to work at reduced bandwidth while the RAID rebuilds in the background.

Built-In Flexibility

Do you need pure, unadulterated speed, ultimate redundancy, or something in between? Its your choice—Fusion D800RAID supports DV RAID, RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 10, 50, and JBOD groups. Fusion D800RAID even supports hot spares— the designated hot spare drive automatically replaces a failed one without you having to lift a finger. All this flexibility is accomplished without switches—a simple to use configuration utility enables you to optimize your setup for specific workflow environments.

Brains and Brawn

The heart of the Fusion D800RAID storage system is the Sonnet PCI Express RAID controller. This powerhouse is based on the latest-generation Intel IOP348 RAID processor, which can handle the throughput from all the drives with plenty of overhead. The Sonnet RAID controller is configured with 256MB of ECC-protected RAM, especially important to maintain data stream writes as the disk array nears capacity.

Driving Force

Fusion D800RAID 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.

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 D800RAID storage systems provide. Fusion D800RAID 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.
