Out Climb


The absolute ultimate in enterprise-grade performance when your business depends on incredible speed and throughput

For the organization with the most extreme performance demands, you can’t get better than the Ultimate. Every aspect of the Ultimate is focused on increasing speed and throughput for workflows that push the envelope of your storage infrastructure.

With multiple capacity module options based on drives, you can not only max out your performance but also scale your capacity to whatever size you need. All with blinding speed. Add a second Ultimate compute module to add high availability to your operations.

Ultimate Series

Maximum enterprise performance

  • All  solution via external PCIe connectivity to flash modules
  • Accepts F (4 drives) or FD (4 drives) capacity modules
  • The most throughput available from OpenDrives
  • Ultra-low latency
  • High availability with the addition of a second Ultimate compute module
  • Increase capacity with additional F or FD capacity modules
  • 2U rack unit

The choice is all yours

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.
