The Sonnet's Fusion RX1600 48TB Fibre with 8GB Quad have been providing fast, dependable, local storage for individual users for years. Until now, accessing the files at high speed on another computer meant moving the system to the other computer. This 16TB or 32TB(1), 3U rackmount system is designed to be the stellar performer for video editing workgroups.
Fusion RX1600Fibre features a high-performance internal RAID controller with a high speed, 4-port 8Gb Fibre Channel interface that enables multiple users to connect and access data at the same time. This system can deliver 30 streams of ProRes 422 HQ (twice as many as general purpose Fibre storage) and also maintains aggregate stream capacity for multiple simultaneous clients - an area where general purpose Fibre storage falls behind.
Fusion RX1600Fibre boasts a 4-port 8Gb Fibre Chanel interface that enables it to deliver much higher stream counts to workgroups, with up to twice as many streams available than when using general purpose shared storage systems. The Fusion RX1600Fibre storage system's 8Gb Fibre Channel host interface can provide four workstations direct, high-speed access to stored assets without an added Fibre Channel switch - depending on your workflow and the SAN software used, even using a dedicated server is optional. Fusion RX1600Fibre delivers aggregate bandwidth up to 1,000MB/sec, with high bandwidth available to individual workstations. Its fast interface and multipathing support enable Fusion RX1600Fibre bandwidth than general purpose shared storage systems.
