If you need faster, high-capacity internal storage for your desktop computer or server, 2.5-inch SATA SSDs are the cost-effective choice. Sonnet’s Fusion™ Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID PCIe card enables you to upgrade your system in a flash, mounting one or two SSDs (sold separately) with up to 8TB capacity(1) in a single full-length PCIe card slot, with no power or data cables, adapters, or mounting trays required.
Install the Sonnet Fusion card into a PCIe 3.0 slot of a computer or Thunderbolt 3 expansion system and achieve great transfer speeds up to 1000 MB/s! Still use a Mac Pro 5,1 tower? Enjoy performance up to 770 MB/s now, and migrate the Sonnet card to the new Mac Pro (2019) to enjoy even better performance.
Increases performance by interleaving data into blocks (stripes) across two or more drives simultaneously to increase speed.
Looking for the safety of a simultaneous backup? RAID 1 performance of up to 540 MB/s may be obtained with any compatible computer or expansion system.
If primary drive crashes, the mirrored drive will automatically replace the primary drive.
A high performance RAID controller manages the SSDs you install, supporting Fast (RAID 0), Safe (RAID 1), Volume (Span) and, particularly important to pro audio users, JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) configurations, so you can choose the mode that best suits your needs:
Regardless the mode you select, changing the configuration is easy – with no software to install or jumper blocks to move around, a turn of a switch and the press of a button is all it takes.
Sonnet’s Fusion Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID card also includes a SuperSpeed USB-C (USB 3.2 Gen 2) port that supports data transfers of up to 1000 MB/s(3), and provides up to 15W of power to support bus-powered devices—you can connect a fast external drive without installing another card.
Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe card slot? Fusion Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID card provides full performance and is ideal for use in a Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 2 edition Echo™ Express III-D, III-R, or xMac™ Thunderbolt to PCIe card expansion system. The combo enables you to add two SSDs plus a USB-C port to any Mac or Linux computer with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt 3 ports, or Windows PC with Thunderbolt 3 ports.
Over the last 3 months, editors have increasingly stepped away from the post house to cut, grade and finish from home. Unplugged from ultra-fast online storage, editors have felt the pain of small local drives and storage that isn’t up to the job of multi-channel RAW. The problem is real and becoming increasingly pressing: video resolution is increasing, with 4K and 6K cameras becoming common on the market, and more cameras offering 10-, 12- or 16-bit recording options. For a creative platform like Baselight, DaVinci Resolve or Adobe After Effectts, this additional data is a godsend as it gives editors, colourists and compositors the flexibility to control the look with no creative boundaries.
Many in the creative world are now taking their home workplace to the next level. What may have been an occasional space must now be transformed into a fully operational studio, replicating a professional, managed environment.
