What's New:
Sonnet Technologies today announced the Fusion Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID PCIe® 3.0 card, the latest product in the company's line of high-performance storage cards that enable the installation of SSDs into a computer's or Thunderbolt expansion system's PCIe card slot. The Fusion card includes a hardware RAID controller for drive configuration, plus an external USB 3.2 Gen 2 USB-C port with 15 watts of power.

What It Does:
The Fusion Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID card enables users to install two 2.5-inch SATA SSDs (sold separately) into a full-length PCIe card slot. The attached SSDs are managed by the card's onboard RAID controller, which supports RAID 0, RAID 1, Span, and JBOD configurations and provides users a powerful tool for configuring the SSDs for best performance or data safety without impacting their system's performance. For added convenience, a USB-C port capable of supporting high-performance, bus-powered drives and other USB peripherals is included. The USB-C port also supports the USB 3.0 charging specification that enables simultaneous charging and syncing of an iOS® or iPadOS® device.

Why It's Important:
For many users in need of faster high-capacity internal storage for their system, 2.5-inch SATA SSDs are the cost-effective choice. The Fusion Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID PCIe card mounts two of them — currently available in capacities up to 4TB — in a single full-length PCIe card slot, with no cables, adapters, or mounting trays required. With two SSDs configured as a RAID 0 (fast) set, sustained data transfers up to 1,000 MB/s are possible, providing users plenty of speed to accomplish most tasks. The inclusion of a 10Gbps USB-C port on the card enables users to add a fast external device connection without the need to install a separate adapter card.

How It's Unique:
Compatible with macOS, Windows, and Linux, the Fusion Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID card is the only storage expansion PCIe card that supports two cost-effective 2.5-inch SATA SSDs with an onboard hardware RAID controller, plus fast external drives with a SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps USB-C port. The card's RAID controller enables drive configuration without requiring the user to install special software or move jumper blocks on the card. Supporting data transfers of up to 1,000 MB/s, the USB-C port also provides up to 15 watts of power to support bus-powered drives without the need to connect an additional AC power adapter.
