Under real world use (drives 85% filled and fragmented) with its drives formatted as a RAID 5 group (sixteen drives striped with parity across all group members), a Fusion RX1600RAID system is capable of 2K (2048 x 1556) LOG RGB capture and playback. A Fusion RX1600RAID system can achieve up to 1750 MB/sec read and 1250 MB/sec write (AJA Kona 1080HD test), fast enough to handle uncompressed 10-bit 1080 4:4:4 HD, or multiple streams of ProRes 422 HD, uncompressed 8-bit 1080 HD, DV, HDV, and DVCPRO video.
Raw data transfer rates are just one measure of a storage system’s abilities, but they don’t tell the whole story. How many video streams can be transferred at the same time without dropping frames is another measure critical in determining overall performance, and one that can greatly impact your workflow. Fusion RX1600RAID achieves high stream counts because of its ability to consistently and efficiently sustain data throughput, a result of incorporating ATTO Technologies’ exclusive Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) Technology in the included Sonnet PCI Express® (PCIe) RAID controller card. ADS provides controlled acceleration of data transfers, compensating for transfer speed peaks and drops to maintain a consistent data flow, allowing more streams without dropped frames for the bandwidth available.
Enhanced Data Security
With drives formatted as a RAID 4, 5, 6, or DVRAID protected group, Fusion RX1600RAID systems offer data protection in the event of a drive failure (two drives when formatted as a RAID 6 group). You can configure your system to provide visual and audible alerts, including e-mail notification in the event of a drive failure. A drive can be swapped out and the RAID group rebuilt in hours, or you can tune the rebuild priority to deliver full read performance during the process to keep you working while the RAID group rebuilds in the background.
Fusion RX1600RAID storage systems provide additional protection beyond basic data security. The Sonnet 6Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID controller employs ATTO Technologies’ exclusive DriveAssure Technology, which monitors drives’ I/O performance and performs periodic drive scans to map out and repair bad sectors and slow spots without failing the drive. This proactive maintenance enables the controller to compensate for when a RAID group does not respond to a command within a specified time, which could lead to degraded performance (e.g., dropped frames), or worse, the RAID group being failed.
The heart of a Fusion RX1600RAID storage system is the Sonnet 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID controller. Offering eight lanes of PCIe 2.0 connectivity, this powerhouse adapter is based on the latest-generation Marvell 88RC9580 RAID-on-Chip (ROC) processor, which handles the throughput from all the drives with plenty of overhead. The Sonnet 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID controller is configured with 512MB of ECC-protected cache memory, especiallySonnet 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA RAID Card important to maintain data stream writes as the disk array nears capacity.
A single Fusion RX1600RAID system with sixteen drives (configured as RAID 5) delivers up to 1750 MB/sec read, 1250 MB/sec write data transfers
Fusion RX1600RAID supports RAID levels 4, 5, and 6 to protect data in case of a drive failure (two drives with RAID 6) while maintaining great performance
Enhanced Data Security
Fusion RX1600RAID monitors drive performance and automatically maps out bad sectors to prevent drive failures, and provides data recovery tools in case a RAID group can’t be rebuilt and is taken offline
SES (SCSI Enclosure Services) and S.M.A.R.T. data reporting provide realtime monitoring and reporting of the enclosure and drives’ status
