For the most demanding high-bandwidth and high-resolution workflows, nothing can stop the power of Apex. The Apex all-flash network attached storage system was designed for extreme performance requirements and offers maximum sustained throughput performance for super high-bandwidth, low-latency concurrent sequential read/write use cases. Built on blazingly fast all-flash, SSD technology, Apex delivers the speed and performance you need for the most challenging production workflows.

Apex is an ideal solution for handling multiple concurrent streams of 4K, 6K, 8K and UHD video as well as High Frame Rate (HFR) and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content creation workflows. Apex integrates seamlessly with the market-leading media software applications allowing you to edit, render, transcode, color and incorporate visual effects faster than ever.

Apex is Built for Performance

  • An all-flash (SSD) array to minimize latency.
  • Capacities starting at 28 TeraBytes and scalable to multiple PetaBytes.
  • 20 GB/s aggregate throughput (yes, we said GigaBytes) and 5 GB/s throughput to a single user.
  • Complete, transparent software integration for ease-of-use.
  • Supports any file format, codec, or resolution.
  • Edit, render, transcode, color and incorporate visual effects faster than ever.
  • Specific memory and caching enhancements to optimize speed (MRU and MFU Algorithms).
  • Easily sustains multiple streams of raw uncompressed DPX and EXR frames in HD, 2K, UHD, 4K, 6K and 8K.

A Robust Software Feature Set

  • Fully-featured, industry-leading enterprise software.
