Easy Storage Expandability
When you need access to more than the original 16TB or 32TB capacity(1) of your Fusion™ RX1600RAID, RX1600Fibre™, or RX1600 Vfibre™ storage system, Sonnet offers an economical upgrade path that is simple to deploy-Fusion RX1600 Expansion systems. All Fusion RX1600 series storage systems feature dual internal SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) expanders that enable you to connect additional RX1600 Expansion systems in a daisy chain, no additional RAID controller card needed. This simplifies installation and significantly reduces your cost to expand capacity. As a matter of fact, incorporating more storage capacity is nearly as simple as installing additional Fusion RX1600 Expansion systems into the rack and connecting a few cables. Of course, if you don't need access to all your files all the time, Fusion storage systems' user-swappable drive modules enable you to easily change sets of drives as you go.
