Sonnet DX800 overview

  • 1Description

Expand the storage capacity of your Fusion DX800RAID by up to 64TB using the Fusion DX800RAID 64TB 8-Bay Mini-SAS Expansion Array from Sonnet. This expansion array provides eight 3.5" SATA drive bays, each of which is equipped with an 8TB 3.5" 7200 rpm SATA hard drive. Using the integrated hardware controller, there is support for RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, and 10, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available. Depending on the selected RAID or JBOD configuration, data transfer speeds are supported up to 1100 MB/s read and up to 1000 MB/s write.

The Fusion DX800RAID Expansion features an internal SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) expander that allows users to daisy-chain up to 16 DX800RAID Expansion arrays together, without the need for additional RAID controller cards, outside of what is already included with the Fusion DX800RAID. This is accomplished using the expansion enclosure's two integrated Mini-SAS ports, one of which connects to your existing Fusion DX800RAID, with the other being reserved for daisy chaining. This expansion array operates using a 300W power supply that runs at 100-240V and 50/60Hz. Included are eight 3.5" drive modules and a power cord and protection are provided by a limited 5-year warranty.

General Features

Storage Expansion
Add 64TB (8 x 8TB) of storage to your existing Fusion DX800RAID storage system
Fusion DX800RAID storage systems integrate a quiet Vantec Stealth fan. This fan is quieter than a standard case fan, making this system well suited for use in noise-sensitive environments
Secure Connection
Fusion DX800RAID enclosures link to the Sonnet RAID controller with mini-SAS to mini-SAS connector cables that lock securely at both ends
Economical Expandability
There is no need to purchase additional RAID controllers to add capacity, as this expansion unit connects directly to your existing Fusion DX800RAID storage system. The Fusion DX800RAID's internal SAS expander enables you to connect up to 16 Fusion DX800RAID Expansion enclosures to a single Sonnet RAID controller card in a daisy chain, simplifying installation and reducing the cost for expandable storage
Status Supervisor
The reliability of the Fusion DX800RAID Expansion system is further enhanced through SES (SCSI Enclosure Services) 2.0 compliance, a feature more commonly found on enterprise storage systems, and enhanced S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) data reporting for each hard drive installed in the system. Built into the Fusion DX800RAID enclosure, SES functionality provides enhanced real-time monitoring and reporting of drive, power supply, and temperature status, with real time results displayed in utility application screens and the illumination of conveniently placed LEDs on the enclosure. S.M.A.R.T. data criteria can be used to notify you of an impending drive failure and enable you to minimize downtime as a result
