Triple-interface drive handles up to 20TB in one case

Sonnet Technologies today announced the launch of the Fusion QR, a compact and portable four-drive RAID 5 SATA storage system. Like the Fusion D400QR5 that the new system replaces, the Fusion QR integrates a high-performance RAID 5 controller for critical data protection, and offers interfaces that includes eSATA, dual FireWire 800, and USB 3.0.

Available without drives, and in 8TB, 12TB, and 16TB configurations, the Fusion QR features a high-performance internal RAID controller that manages the enclosed 3.5-inch hard drives and offers RAID levels 0, 5, 10, and JBOD. By setting a switch, users can select RAID modes and configure the drives to meet performance and data security requirements.

The Fusion QR delivers data transfers up to 250 MB/sec read and 240 MB/sec write with its drives configured as a RAID 5 group. The storage system includes USB 3.0, locking eSATA, and dual FireWire 800 interfaces, and cables for same.

The Fusion QR is available now with suggested retail prices ranging from $369 for the model without drives (0TB) to $1,499 for the 16TB model.
