Sonnet Announces Dual 2.5-Inch SATA SSD PCI Express 3.0 Card 

Sonnet Technologies has announced the Fusion Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID PCIe 3.0 card with hardware RAID controller.

Sonnet said the Fusion card includes an external USB 3.2 Gen 2 USB-C port with 15 watts of power. The 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. It provides users a tool for configuring the SSDs for best performance or data safety without impacting system performance.

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.

For many users in need of faster high-capacity internal storage for their system, 2.5-inch SATA SSDs are a 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. The inclusion of a 10Gbps USB-C port on the card enables users to add an external device connection without the need to install a separate adapter card.
