The D800P2 employs two high performance SATA II port multipliers, each managing four drives. By using dual port multipliers, Sonnet has created 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.
Connected to a Sonnet Tempo SATA E4P PCIe or X4P PCI-X host controller installed in a Mac or Windows computer, a Fusion D800P2 system's drives can be accessed at high speed, whether configured as a RAID 0, RAID 1, or RAID 10 set, or JBOD. With its drives configured as a RAID 0 striped set, a Fusion D800P2 storage system achieves up to 400 MB/sec write, 470 MB/sec read data transfers.
Fusion D800P2 storage systems offer speed, versatility and reliability - they're a great choice for anyone looking for an affordable storage system that will fit into a variety of workflows. The Fusion D800P2 uses just two locking eSATA data cables (a Sonnet exclusive) to connect the enclosure to a SATA host controller card.
This efficient interface simplifies setup and cuts cable clutter without compromising performance. These systems are ideal for use in mixed environments - various operating systems, editing applications and output demands requiring the flexibility and interoperability that Fusion D800P2 storage systems provide.
