D400QR5, R400QR5 RAID 5 storage

Sonnet Technologies has announced a desktop RAID system, the Fusion D400QR5, along with its rackmount counterpart, the R400QR5. Both devices build upon the company's previously released D400Q and R400Q four-bay systems, adding a RAID 5 controller for improved balance between data protection and usable capacity. Both systems support eSATA, FireWire 800 and 400, and USB 2.0 interfaces, while enabling users to select a preferred RAID mode or configure each individual drive.

The storage systems offer data transfer rates of up to 225MB/s while reading, or up to 117MB/s writing, and are compatible with Sonnet Tempt, SATA II, PCI-X, and ExpressCard/34 host controllers. The D400QR5 and R400QR5 are available in 2TB, 3TB, 4TB and 6TB configurations. Each integrates low-noise fan technology for noise-sensitive environments.

The systems ships with cables for each interface and support Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems. Software support is included for Apple's Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premier Pro. Users can purchase the drives from supporting retail stores, with prices ranging from $1,335 to $1,975 depending on the model.
