HD Optimized Performance
If you're working in HD, you need fast and reliable storage. If you're doing a lot of work in HD, you also need easy expandability and improved file protection. Available in configurations up to 24TB(1), Sonnet's Fusion DX800RAID storage systems deliver breakthrough performance and proven data safety to meet those needs with affordable, direct attached disk arrays. Fusion DX800RAID storage systems are designed for work environments where high performance and fault tolerance are critical, and simple expandability a must. They are fast enough to easily handle uncompressed HD while protecting the data at the same time, yet flexible enough to be configured for any workflow.
Under real world use (drives 85% filled and fragmented) with its drives formatted as a RAID 5 group (eight drives striped with parity across all group members), a Fusion DX800RAID storage system is capable of single-stream 2K (2048 x 1556) LOG RGB capture and playback. It can achieve up to 1100 MB/sec read, 1000 MB/sec write (AJA Kona 1080HD test), fast enough to handle a single stream of uncompressed 10-bit 1080 4:4:4 HD, or multiple streams of ProRes 422, uncompressed 8-bit 1080 HD, DV, HDV, and DVCPRO video.
