About the Sonnet RX1600

Sonnet's Fusion RAID storage systems are widely recognized for their performance and dependability, providing users the data throughput and protection critical in the growing field of high definition video editing work. Fusion RX1600RAID takes these attributes to a new level. Building on proven technologies, the Fusion RX1600RAID rackmount 16-drive SATA storage system offers the fastest performance and biggest capacity yet of any Sonnet storage system plus the easy expandability featured in the Fusion RX1600RAID and adds Enterprise-class features to the mix. Fusion RX1600RAID storage systems are designed for work environments where performance and fault tolerance are critical and maximum availability a must. Fusion RX1600RAID storage systems 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 (sixteen drives striped with parity across all group members), a Fusion RX1600RAID system is capable of 2K (2048 x 1556) LOG RGB capture and playback. A Fusion RX1600RAID system can achieve up to 1000 MB/sec read and 750 MB/sec write (AJA Kona 1080HD test), fast enough to handle uncompressed 10-bit 1080 4:4:4 HD, or multiple streams of ProRes 422, uncompressed 8-bit 1080 HD, DV, HDV and DVCPRO video.

With drives formatted as a RAID 4, RAID 5, RAID 6, or DVRAID group, Fusion RX1600RAID systems offer file protection in the event of a drive failure (two drives when formatted as a RAID 6 group). You can configure your system to provide visual and audible alerts, including e-mail notification in the event of a drive failure. A drive can be swapped out and the RAID group rebuilt in around a few hours, or you can continue to work at reduced bandwidth while the RAID group rebuilds in the background.
