Install Two 2.5-inch SATA SSDs into a PCIe Card Slot
If you need faster, high-capacity internal storage for your desktop computer or server, 2.5-inch SATA SSDs are the cost-effective choice. Sonnet’s Fusion™ Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID PCIe card enables you to upgrade your system in a flash, mounting one or two SSDs (sold separately) with up to 8TB capacity(1) in a single full-length PCIe card slot, with no power or data cables, adapters, or mounting trays required.
Great 2-Drive Hardware RAID 0 Performance
Install the Sonnet Fusion card into a PCIe 3.0 slot of a computer or Thunderbolt 3 expansion system and achieve great transfer speeds up to 1000 MB/s!
Still use a Mac Pro 5,1 tower? Enjoy performance up to 800 MB/s now, and migrate the Sonnet card to the new Mac Pro (2019) to enjoy even better performance.
Fast RAID 1 Performance
Looking for the safety of a simultaneous backup? RAID 1 performance of up to 560 MB/s may be obtained with any compatible computer or expansion system.
If primary drive crashes, the mirrored drive will automatically replace the primary drive.
Hardware RAID Controller Onboard
A high performance RAID controller manages the SSDs you install, supporting Fast (RAID 0), Safe (RAID 1), Volume (Span) and, particularly important to pro audio users, JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) configurations, so you can choose the mode that best suits your needs:
Choose RAID 0 for the best performance.
Choose RAID 1 for a mirrored backup of your data.
Choose Span to create a single large volume bridging both drives.
Choose JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) to work with twice as many audio tracks.
Regardless the mode you select, changing the configuration is easy – with no software to install or jumper blocks to move around, a turn of a switch and the press of a button is all it takes.
Fast USB Speed and Plenty of Power for Bus-powered Devices
Sonnet’s Fusion Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID card also includes a SuperSpeed USB-C (USB 3.2 Gen 2) port that supports data transfers of up to 1000 MB/s(3), and provides up to 15W of power to support bus-powered devices—you can connect a fast external drive without installing another card.
Thunderbolt Port? Connect Two SSDs Through One Cable
Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe card slot? Fusion Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID card provides full performance and is ideal for use in a Sonnet Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 2 edition Echo™ Express III-D, III-R, or xMac™ Thunderbolt to PCIe card expansion system. The combo enables you to add two SSDs plus a USB-C port to any Mac or Linux computer with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt 3 ports, or Windows PC with Thunderbolt 3 ports.
