Sonnet launches the new Fusion D800P2 mass storage solution that offers rooms for up to eight SATA hard drives. The D800P2 features two SATA II port multipliers, each managing four drives creating a high performance storage system “with data throughput fast enough to support multiple streams of DV, HDV, DVCPRO, ProRes 422, or uncompressed 8-bit 1080i HD video, without the need of an expensive dedicated RAID controller card”.
The Fusion D800P2 is available in 4, 8, 12, or 16TB capacities with 8 Enterprise/RAID Edition hard drives. Users can set up drives in software-configured RAID 0 set for speed, RAID 1 set for redundancy, RAID 10 for combined redundancy and speed, or JBOD for archiving data. The system uses just two locking eSATA data cables to connect the enclosure to a SATA host controller card.
