Sonnet F2QR overview

  • 1Description

The 4TB Fusion F2QR RAID Storage System from Sonnet is a portable 2-drive hardware RAID storage system with quad interface, which offers extensive connectivity. It requires just a single data cable to connect the enclosure to an eSATA host controller card. This simplifies setup and cuts cable clutter without compromising performance. You can select eSATA for maximum speed or FireWire 800 for medium speed. You can also select FireWire 400 or USB 2.0 for flexibility.

The F2QR's built-in hardware RAID controller supports RAID 0 (striped), RAID 1 (mirrored), JBOD (just a bunch of disks), and SPAN configurations without relying on a separate adapter card. Whether you choose RAID 0, RAID 1, or JBOD, changing the drive configuration is simple using the included configuration application software. The application also provides information on the health of the drives when they've been configured as a RAID 1 set.

Mounted side-by-side in an aluminum enclosure, the diminutive Fusion F2QR contains two shock-isolated 2.5" hard drives. This not only protects the drives during transport, but also virtually eliminates cross-coupled vibration. The side-by-side placement of its drives increases the metal case's cooling surface area, thereby eliminating the need for a fan, and allowing it to be bus-powered so it can be used even when no grid power is available. Fusion F2QR can be powered by your computer through a spare FireWire port using the included adapter cable. Alternatively, you can power the F2QR by connecting it directly to Sonnet's Qio with an optional 6" power cable. For longer fieldwork, the F2QR is also compatible with all models of myPower ALL batteries from Tekkeon. Other power options include another FireWire device, powered hub, or Sonnet's optional World Travel Power Adapter. With its small footprint and low power requirements, this rugged device is suitable for use in the field or office.

The Fusion F2QR is equipped with two 2.5˝ SATA drives and is mounted inside an aluminum case. It is bus-powered and ultra-portable
Integrated Hardware RAID Controller
Supports RAID 0 (fast), RAID 1 (safe), concatenated (Span) and JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) configurations
Flexible Connectivity
Supports eSATA, FireWire 400/800, and USB 2.0 interfaces that enable single cable connection to most computers
Durable and Dependable
Both the drives are shock-isolated, virtually eliminating cross-coupled vibration, which if unchecked can induce soft errors; a potential source of skipped frames
When set to Fast mode (RAID 0) and connected via eSATA, Fusion F2QR can sustain transfer rates of up to 160 MB/s
When connected to a Tempo SATA E4P eSATA adapter installed in a Mac Pro and drives configured as a RAID 0 striped volume, the compact Fusion F2QR delivers data transfer rate up to 160 MB/s read and 110 MB/s write. With its drives configured as a RAID 1 mirrored volume, it can sustain transfers of up to 85 MB/s read and 83 MB/s write, providing superior performance while keeping the data backed up at the same time
Qio Companion
Qio reads and writes to any type of memory card including CompactFlash, P2, SDHC, SxS, SDXC and SATA storage systems with an eSATA interface, all at high speed. The F2QR and Qio can be stacked on top of each other. You can connect the F2QR directly to the Qio using optional 6" power and eSATA data cables to keep cable clutter to a minimum
Wide Host Controller Card Compatibility
The storage system is compatible with Sonnet's full line of Tempo PCIe and ExpressCard/34 host controllers. It is also compatible with Sonnet's Qio Professional Universal Media Reader
Cross Platform Compatibility
Supports Mac as well as Windows computers
