Connected via a single locking eSATA cable to a Sonnet Tempo
SATA E4P or Tempo SATA X4P Serial ATA host adapter installed in a
Mac or Windows computer, a Fusion D500P system’s 5 drives can
be configured as RAID 0, 1, 10, or JBOD. A single Fusion D500P
configured as a RAID 0 striped set achieves 240MB/sec, fast enough
to capture and play a single stream of uncompressed 8-bit 720 HD, or
support multiple streams of DV, HDV, DVCPRO, or SD video. Do you
need more performance? Up to four Fusion D500Ps can be ganged
on a single Tempo SATA E4P or Tempo SATA X4P adapter for double,
triple, or even quadruple the available streams (as well as increasing
the number of supported video formats).
Fusion D500P storage systems are transportable, so when you
require fast, reliable storage in the field, connect one to a MacBook®
Pro or a Windows notebook computer through Sonnet’s Tempo SATA
ExpressCard|34 host adapter.
Sonnet’s Tempo SATA E4P and Tempo SATA X4P SATA host
adapter cards deliver performance previously unattainable with
mainstream technologies, and unprecedented scalability through
their support of port multipliers. Port multipliers manage the data
flow of up to five drives in one enclosure through a single cable,
with data throughput of up to 240MB/s per port. Using today’s
highest-capacity drives, you can connect an astounding 20 Terabytes
(20,000 Gigabytes!) of storage. For the utmost performance, you can
create multiple RAID sets to capture and process uncompressed high
definition video, or conquer other high-bandwidth applications. For
fantastic flexibility, you can work with 20 drives individually and hotswap them as needed*.

About stream count testing: hyperbole vs. editing reality
Rather than waste your time with meaningless disk tests performed on empty drives, we've conducted in-depth, real world testing to provide you with realistic results. Testing was
conducted after weeks of use, during which time projects were captured, parts deleted, more parts captured, rendered, and so on, leaving the drives 85% full and fragmented. The stream
counts we present here reflect the reduced performance that results from regular day-in, day-out use. Remember, virtually any storage system works well the day you get it, but the true
test is whether it will continue to serve you when you push the envelope and deadlines. Fusion storage systems won't let you down.

HD Optimized Performance
Key Features
Expandable HD Performance
Under real world use (drives 85% filled and fragmented), with its
drives formatted as a RAID 0 group, the D800RAID is capable of
single-stream 2K (2048 x 1556) LOG RGB capture and playback. With
its drives configured as a protected RAID 5 group (eight 1TB drives
striped with parity distributed across all group members), Fusion
D800RAID can achieve 515MB/sec (AJA Kona 1080HD test), fast
enough to handle multiple streams of uncompressed 8-bit 1080 HD,
DV, HDV, and DVCPRO video.
With its drives configured as a protected RAID 5 group (four 1TB
drives striped with parity distributed across all group members),
Fusion D400RAID can achieve 236MB/sec read, 179 MB/sec write
data transfers (AJA Kona 1080HD test), fast enough to handle four
streams of uncompressed 8-bit NTSC video, or multiple streams of
DV, DVCPRO, HDV, and SD video.
Brains and Brawn
The powerhouse Sonnet PCI Express RAID controller is based on the
latest-generation Intel® IOP348 RAID processor, which can handle
the throughput from all the drives with plenty of overhead. The
Sonnet RAID controller is configured with 256MB of ECC-protected
RAM, especially important to maintain data stream writes as the disk
array nears capacity.
When you need more storage capacity and better performance, this
storage system allows you to expand beyond your original setup—
just add a Fusion D400RAID Expansion. When you configure all
8 drives together in a RAID group, you’ll double the capacity and
performance of your original Fusion D400RAID system, equivalent
to a Fusion D800RAID. More streams, more formats—what more
could you ask for?
SATA II
CONFIGURATION
Fusion D400RAID connected to Sonnet RAID
controller installed in Quad 2.66 GHz Mac Pro
w/3GB of RAM and an AJA Kona3 capture card.
Built-In Flexibility
Fusion D400RAID storage systems can easily be optimized for your
workflow—they support RAID 0, 1, 4 (DVRAID), 5, 10, and JBOD
groups. They even support hot spares—the designated hot spare
drive automatically replaces a failed one without you having to lift
a finger. All this flexibility is accomplished without switches—the
configuration application enables you to optimize your setup for
specific workflows.
AJA System Test 2k
Test performed with an 8TB system and a 2k frame size where very large frames are written
(12.5MB frame, 24fps). The good news here is that 2k LOG RGB film at this frame size is
still only about 320MB/sec, which means even with overhead we can play it back without
dropping frames. This system is set up 85% full with everything ready to show.

Fusion D400Q desktop and R400Q rackmount storage systems
each house 4 drives in compact enclosures. They offer speed,
reliability, and flexibility, and are great solutions for anyone looking
for an affordable package that will fit into a variety of workflows.
A single Fusion 400Q storage system can play a single stream of
uncompressed 10-bit 720 HD video without dropping frames, yet is
equally adept hosting daily backups.
Maximum Performance, Maximum Convenience
Fusion 400Q storage systems employ a high—performance SATA II
port multiplier to manage the enclosed drives. Just a single locking
cable is required to connect the enclosure to a SATA host controller
card—without compromising performance. Connected to a Sonnet
Tempo SATA E4P PCIe or Tempo SATA X4P PCI-X Serial ATA host
adapter installed in a Mac or Windows computer, a 400Q system’s

HD Optimized Performance
Key Features
Expandable HD Performance
Under real world use (drives 85% filled and fragmented), with its
drives formatted as a RAID 0 group, the D800RAID is capable of
single-stream 2K (2048 x 1556) LOG RGB capture and playback. With
its drives configured as a protected RAID 5 group (eight 1TB drives
striped with parity distributed across all group members), Fusion
D800RAID can achieve 515MB/sec (AJA Kona 1080HD test), fast
enough to handle multiple streams of uncompressed 8-bit 1080 HD,
DV, HDV, and DVCPRO video.
With its drives configured as a protected RAID 5 group (four 1TB
drives striped with parity distributed across all group members),
Fusion D400RAID can achieve 236MB/sec read, 179 MB/sec write
data transfers (AJA Kona 1080HD test), fast enough to handle four
streams of uncompressed 8-bit NTSC video, or multiple streams of
DV, DVCPRO, HDV, and SD video.
Brains and Brawn
The powerhouse Sonnet PCI Express RAID controller is based on the
latest-generation Intel® IOP348 RAID processor, which can handle
the throughput from all the drives with plenty of overhead. The
Sonnet RAID controller is configured with 256MB of ECC-protected
RAM, especially important to maintain data stream writes as the disk
array nears capacity.
When you need more storage capacity and better performance, this
storage system allows you to expand beyond your original setup—
just add a Fusion D400RAID Expansion. When you configure all
8 drives together in a RAID group, you’ll double the capacity and
performance of your original Fusion D400RAID system, equivalent
to a Fusion D800RAID. More streams, more formats—what more
could you ask for?

CONFIGURATION
Fusion D400RAID connected to Sonnet RAID
controller installed in Quad 2.66 GHz Mac Pro
w/3GB of RAM and an AJA Kona3 capture card.
Built-In Flexibility
Fusion D400RAID storage systems can easily be optimized for your
workflow—they support RAID 0, 1, 4 (DVRAID), 5, 10, and JBOD
groups. They even support hot spares—the designated hot spare
drive automatically replaces a failed one without you having to lift
a finger. All this flexibility is accomplished without switches—the
configuration application enables you to optimize your setup for
specific workflows.
AJA System Test 2k
Test performed with an 8TB system and a 2k frame size where very large frames are written
(12.5MB frame, 24fps). The good news here is that 2k LOG RGB film at this frame size is
still only about 320MB/sec, which means even with overhead we can play it back without
dropping frames. This system is set up 85% full with everything ready to show.

About stream count testing: hyperbole vs. editing reality
Rather than waste your time with meaningless disk tests performed on empty drives, we've conducted in-depth, real world testing to provide you with realistic results. Testing was
conducted after weeks of use, during which time projects were captured, parts deleted, more parts captured, rendered, and so on, leaving the drives 85% full and fragmented. The stream
counts we present here reflect the reduced performance that results from regular day-in, day-out use. Remember, virtually any storage system works well the day you get it, but the true
test is whether it will continue to serve you when you push the envelope and deadlines. Fusion storage systems won't let you down.

Award Winning SATA Storage Systems
Recipients of the prestigious Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit award at NAB 2007, Sonnet’s Fusion™ SATA storage
systems are acknowledged for their shared qualities of breakthrough performance, excellent value, great reliability,
and broad hardware and application compatibility. Fusion D800RAID, R800RAID and D400RAID systems include an
Intel® RAID processor-based controller card to ensure the best performance with data protection available in their price
range, while Fusion D500P, D400Q and R400Q systems offer integrated port multipliers with single eSATA interfaces
to provide great performance through Sonnet’s acclaimed Tempo™ SATA E4P and Tempo SATA X4P host adapter
cards with port multiplier support. These systems are ideal for use in mixed work environments—various operating
systems, editing applications and output demands—requiring the flexibility and interoperability that Fusion SATA storage
systems provide. They support Mac OS® X, Windows® XP, Windows Vista, and Linux, and are compatible with capture
cards from AJA, Blackmagic Design, Matrox, and Bluefish444, and work with all mainstream video editing applications
including Apple® Final Cut Pro®, and Adobe® Premiere® Pro CS3. From the 4-drive Fusion D400Q desktop and
R400Q rackmount systems with their innovative quad-interface (eSATA, FireWire 800, FireWire 400, and USB 2.0), to
the acclaimed, protected performance of the 8-drive Fusion D800RAID desktop and R800RAID rackmount systems,
