Sonnet Signs Deal With DVS Egypt

A US-based firm that supplies storage systems for professional users of computer systems in the film, video, and broadcast industries, Sonnet Technologies has announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with a distributor of video editing and computer graphics equipment in Egypt.
DVS Egypt will now provide distribution and sales support functions for Sonnet's entire line of storage systems to the company's network of resellers in Egypt.
DVS is Egypt's sole reseller for a number of market-leading brands, and is devoted to providing its customers with high-quality installations and the best support available.
The company draws its strength from years of system integration experience in the fields of computer graphics and video editing.
"Storage solutions have become imperative tools for video professionals, and Sonnet's products are recognized for quality and innovation throughout the industry," said Yahia Al-Hamshary, owner and Managing Director of DVS Egypt.
"Our customers rely on us to provide the absolute best brands that offer high reliability and speed, and we are proud to add Sonnet products to our line-up."
"Our partnership with DVS Egypt is a key step as we continue to provide greater access and improved support for our solutions across the globe," said Robert Farnsworth, Chief Executive Officer of Sonnet Technologies.
"In Egypt, the DVS name is synonymous with high quality and service, so the company was a natural choice for distributing our product line in the country."
DVS Egypt's Sonnet offering includes the Fusion line of high-performance, cost-effective, and reliable desktop and rackmount RAID storage solutions.
The devices range from two-drive portable solutions to four-drive units with quad interfaces to eight- and 16-drive solutions with internal Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) expanders.
Included in DVS Egypt's offering will be Sonnet's Qio professional universal media reader/writer and 16-drive Fusion RX1600Fibre Shared Fibre Channel storage systems.
Available in 16TB or 32TB configurations, the Fusion RX1600Fibre can provide direct, high-speed access to assets for up to four users without a dedicated server or an added Fibre Channel switch.
Employing a four-port 8Gb Fibre Channel interface, the Fusion RX1600Fibre offers speed and flexibility delivering aggregate bandwidth up to 1,000 MB/sec read, and up to 100 percent more streams to multiple simultaneous users than general-purpose shared storage systems.
Integrated SAS expanders enable RX1600 Expansion enclosures to be connected, while RAID 5 and RAID 6 formatting support, SCSI Enclosure Services (SES) 2.0 compliance, and enhanced S.M.A.R.T. data reporting offer increased reliability.
Sonnet's Qio is a convenient and high-speed alternative to stand-alone card readers, SATA controllers, and various adapters, combining their functionality in a compact rugged case. Qio supports major HD video memory card formats - Sony SxS, Panasonic P2, CompactFlash, and SDHC - with two slots for each (SDHC shared with SxS) and the ability to transfer data from all cards concurrently. Users can copy files between any cards, attached drives, or host computers with aggregate bandwidth of up to 210 MB/sec.
