FUSION DX800 RAID 32TB 8-DRIVE Product Details
4TB, 6TB, 8TB, or 12TB (4) to start - it's your choice. When you need to grow your storage capacity, wouldn't you like a system that's expandable without hassle? Fusion DX800RAID storage systems have you covered. When your job calls for access to more than 12TB of files at a time, Sonnet offers an economical upgrade path that is simple to deploy - Fusion DX800RAID storage expansion systems. Each DX800RAID storage system features an internal SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) expander that enables you to connect additional DX800RAID enclosures in a daisy chain, no additional RAID controller card needed. This simplifies installation and significantly reduces your cost to expand capacity. Of course, if your needs are simpler, each system includes user-swappable drive modules so you can easily change sets of drives as you go.
Fusion DX800RAID systems support RAID 0 for pure, unadulterated speed; RAID 1 for ultimate redundancy; and RAID 4 (DV RAID), 5, 6, and 10 for balanced, performance and protection; JBOD support is available, too. Fusion DX800RAID systems even support hot spares - a designated hot spare drive waits unused in the background to automatically replace a failed drive 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 requirements.
The reliability of the Fusion DX800RAID is further enhanced through SES (SCSI Enclosure Services) 2.0 compliance, a feature more commonly found on enterprise storage systems, and enhanced S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) data reporting for each hard drive installed in the system. Built into the Fusion DX800RAID enclosure, SES functionality provides enhanced real-time monitoring and reporting of drive, power supply, and temperature status, with real time results displayed in utility application screens and the illumination of conveniently placed LEDs on the enclosure. S.M.A.R.T. data criteria can be used to notify you of an impending drive failure and enable you to minimize downtime as a result.
The heart of a Fusion DX800RAID storage system is the Sonnet PCI Express RAID controller. This powerhouse is based on the latest-generation Intel IOP348 RAID processor running at 1.2 GHz, 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.
Fusion storage systems employ Enterprise/RAID Edition hard drives or select, Sonnet certified desktop drives(2) that have been selected for their superior performance, error handling, and reliability characteristics, especially when used in RAID groups. 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 to become the building blocks of a super-reliable Fusion storage system.
These systems are ideal for use in mixed environments - various operating systems, editing applications and output demands requiring the flexibility and interoperability that Fusion DX800RAID storage systems provide. Fusion DX800RAID systems support Mac OS X, Windows Vista, Windows XP, 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.
