Product Information

Versatile Storage

Where you'll use a storage system will often determine your selection. Whether sitting on a desk, mounted in a server or equipment rack, or placed on whatever surface you can find while working on location, Sonnet's Fusion™ F3 is a great choice for your high-speed storage needs. This 6TB, 2-drive hardware RAID storage system has the features demanded by audio and video professionals-high throughput performance, high capacity, rugged design, and quiet operation-plus the flexibility of a quad interface and the convenience of an integrated universal power supply. Fusion F3 encloses its high-performance 3.5" 7200 RPM SATA drives in a stylish aluminum and steel case that fits equally well in recording studios, high-end A/V racks, and desktop or mobile video editing systems.

All the Right Connections

Connecting Fusion F3 to your computer is simple. This storage system features a quad interface that requires just a single data cable to connect the enclosure to an eSATA host controller card for the fastest data transfers possible. This efficient interface simplifies setup and cuts cable clutter without compromising performance. No SATA? No problem-connected via a single FireWire® 800, FireWire 400, or USB 2.0 cable, the drives can be accessed at the full speed of the respective interface. Sonnet includes the cables for each interface (USB 2.0 with standard, full-size A and B connectors, FireWire 400 to FireWire 800, FireWire 800, and eSATA with Sonnet-exclusive locking connectors) so you don't need to buy a new one or search for a spare.

Internal Hardware RAID

A built-in high performance RAID controller manages Fusion F3's drives and supports Fast (RAID 0), Safe (RAID 1), and, particularly important to the pro-audio community, JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) configurations, so you can choose the setup that best suits your needs. Whether you choose Fast for the best performance, Safe for a mirrored backup of your data, or JBOD to work with twice as many audio tracks, changing the drive configuration is nearly as simple as turning the knob on the front of the enclosure and pressing and holding the recessed format button, no application software is required. Unlike some other storage systems, if you move the F3 from computer to computer and change configurations for new projects, you don't have to worry about whether the RAID control application is installed on each computer. Because drive configuration is OS independent, the F3 can be connected directly to an audio editing/mixing interface (and other devices that support the feature) via FireWire interface without requiring a computer to link the storage system and device.

Maximum Performance

When set to Fast mode (RAID 0) and the system connected through an eSATA controller like one of Sonnet's Tempo PCIe or ExpressCard/34 host adapters, Fusion F3 can sustain transfer rates of up to 200 MB/sec read and write, perfect for multichannel audio work and fast enough for multiple streams of compressed video editing. When set to Safe mode (RAID 1) and the system connected via eSATA, Fusion F3 can sustain read/write transfer rates of up to 105 MB/sec while protecting the data by mirroring files on both drives. When set to JBOD mode and the system connected via FireWire or USB, Fusion F3 supports independent seeks of its drives, enabling your audio editing app to work with twice as many tracks as RAID 0, RAID 1, or Span configuration will allow.
