Ultra Hardware Platform

The next generation of flexible, scalable storage

Simplicity in a complex ecosystem

Speed and performance in a storage solution are incredibly important. We would know, because OpenDrives perfected highly performant scale-up enterprise storage. Your business needs are always evolving, though, and we’ve architected our solutions to meet them. We understand how important flexibility to address distributed and cloud-based IT architectures and scalability not only up but also out are to your users and productivity. That’s what our Ultra Hardware Platform embodies: simplicity of design around a flexible, scalable, and high-performance enterprise solution.

Features & Outcomes

Performance and Flexibility

Our Ultra hardware solutions give you the power to build out an enterprise storage infrastructure tailored to the unique and evolving business needs of your organization, no matter your performance, capacity, and concurrency needs.



All-flash NVMe for enterprise-grade performance, hybrid flash and HDD solution for workhorse flexibility, or all-HDD for operational cost efficiency. The choice is yours.


Our Atlas Suite is the intelligence behind our next-generation hardware solutions, delivering high performance, low latency, and ease of use. Our software-led approach extends utility and longevity so you can maximize your investment.


Our hardware series are modular and highly configurable, with an array of compute and capacity options, as well as high availability and clustering capabilities. Our module-based architecture helps you form-fit enterprise storage to the specific functions and goals of your users.

Built on Open


Our Ultra Hardware Platform supports industry-accepted protocols with no vendor lock-in, seamlessly integrating into existing workflows and interoperating with other common technologies. We’re committed to helping you unleash the value of your data within an open IT ecosystem.

Reduced Form

Space and mobility are critical, so we’ve designed our Ultra storage solutions with a 2U form factor so you gain more performance and flexibility in a smaller physical footprint and lighter package.


& Compute

Storage has evolved from being an anchor of IT infrastructures to the innovation hubs for entire data ecosystems. We enable customers to run containerized applications directly on the Compute portion of our storage for increased operational efficiencies and reduced latency between application and data.

Series Comparison

The Ultimate, Optimum, and Momentum Series all share key capabilities that distinguish them from our competitors, and have been designed with specific organizational needs in mind. OpenDrives customizes solutions to meet the unique needs of each customer, but no matter the series or module configuration, you will find the flexibility to scale and adapt to an evolving infrastructure without having to ‘rip and replace’ in order to grow, ultimately extending your return on investment.
