Sonnet – Fusion F2QR Portable RAID Storage with Quad Interface – Call for Pricing

Small Package, Great Performance

Mounted side by side in a tough aluminum enclosure about the size of two stacked CD cases, the diminutive Fusion F2QR contains two, 2.5-inch, 1.5TB(1) hard drives. Based on the multiple-award-winning Fusion F2, a portable two-drive RAID SATA storage system recognized for its performance, reliability, whisper quiet operation and shock-resistant characteristics, this compact device adds a built-in hardware RAID controller for configuring the drives, a quad interface enabling connection to almost any computer, and a greater storage capacity.

Internal Hardware RAID

A built-in high performance RAID controller manages Fusion F2QR’s drives and supports RAID 0 (fast), RAID 1 (safe), concatenated (span) and even JBOD  (Just a Bunch of Disks) configurations, so you can choose the setup that best suits your needs. Whether you choose RAID 0 for the best performance, RAID 1 for a mirrored backup of your data, or JBOD to work with more audio tracks, changing the drive configuration is simple using 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.
