Sonnet adds to Fusion line with four-drive R400S RAID system
Wednesday, December 12, 2012 @ 12:38am

Peripheral and upgrade manufacturer Sonnet Technologies today announced the Fusion R400S RAID, a 1U rackmount, four-drive hardware RAID 5 storage system with an eSATA interface. The Fusion R400S RAID includes a high-performance RAID controller, and its eSATA interface provides single-cable-to-host connectivity. Low-noise fans make this product suitable for use in noise-sensitive environments.



Available in no-drive, 8TB, 12TB, and 16TB configurations, the Fusion R400S RAID SATA storage system features an internal RAID controller that supports RAID levels 0, 5, and 10, plus JBOD and Clone modes. Configurations include maximum capacity (RAID 0), data protection with optimum performance (RAID 5), most concurrent audio file editing (JBOD), or fast cloning of up to four drives concurrently (Clone mode) when it is necessary to send each drive to a different location for security. Selecting the RAID mode requires no application software and is simply a matter of setting a switch. Onboard RAID support eliminates the need for a specialized RAID controller card. Requiring only a single eSATA cable connection to the host controller, the 1U Fusion R400S RAID drive enclosure installs quickly and cleanly in most racks and serves as a low-profile unit when used on the desktop. The included Sonnet eSATA cable locks at both ends when used with a Sonnet SATA controller to prevent accidental disconnection. In addition, the Fusion R400S RAID offers quiet operation with three automatic, temperature-controlled, variable-speed fans. The Fusion R400S RAID is available now with suggested prices ranging from $300 for the 0TB model to $1,999 for 16TB. The Fusion R400S RAID is backed with Sonnet's one-year warranty.
