Fusion Dual 2.5-inch SSD RAID Dual 2.5-inch SSD PCIe 3.0 card with hardware RAID controller, plus 10Gbps USB-C port - Add your own SSDs
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 16TB capacity in a single full-length PCIe card slot, with no power or data cables, adapters, or mounting trays required.
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.
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, 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.
