Out Shine


The ideal catalyst for enterprise-grade momentum with a cost-efficient storage solution combining performance, capacity, and cost efficiency

Thinking that you can’t get extreme enterprise-grade performance from a Momentum? Think again. The Momentum Series isn’t just made for archival or back-up tasks. It’s capable of driving all of your high performance, non-interactive workflows, or for write-intensive applications and nearline repositories. And should disaster strike, Momentum helps you recover effortlessly. Nothing about Momentum is entry level.

The Momentum Series is also cost-effective. It incorporates HDD-based capacity modules which allows you to choose the amount of capacity you need. As with the other solutions in this modular series, you can add more capacity modules when needed, and you can also enable high availability with a second Momentum compute module.

Momentum Series

Maximum enterprise efficiency

  • All HDD solution via 12Gb SAS connectivity to HDD modules
  • Accepts H (21 drives), HD (60 drives), or HDX (102 drives) capacity modules
  • High availability with the addition of a second Momentum compute module
  • Increase capacity with additional H, HD, or HDX capacity modules
  • 2U rack unit

Avoid cookie-cutter storage solutions

Our Ultra storage solutions give you flexibility to build out an enterprise storage infrastructure tailored to your unique business needs. Increase performance, capacity, or concurrency, or all of them. Depending on which compute module you select, you can implement the right level of throughput, density, and other performance features.

Your choice of compute module also determines whether you can select all-flash NVMe, HDD, or a hybrid of both.

Capacity modules come in a variety of drive counts and capacities. F, FD, and H capacity modules are 2U rack units; HD and HDX are 4U rack units.

* Please note: HD and HDX modules will be available starting in Fall 2021.
