All NVMe Flash SSD

Seamless collaborations for large teams. Unbelievable performance. No compromise.

The //BREATHLESS is the ideal solution for high-performance workflows and large teams. Blazing fast with up to 10 Million IOPS. Unbelievable capacity that fits over 1/2 Petabyte of NVMe Flash Storage in a 1RU form factor. Combine it with //AUTEUR or //MONTAGE Helium HDD systems for a hybrid architecture that allows you to affordably scale.

Each of the 36 NGSFF SSD bays connects to the motherboard directly over PCIe to deliver maximum potential performance. With dual Intel Skylake-SP CPUs and 24 DDR4 DIMMs of memory, this system is perfect for I/O intensive local workloads, not just for high-end VFX, but also real-time analytics, database, and OTT content delivery servers.

16TB starting at $2,495 per month


With Netflix demanding 4K, HDR, and IMF delivery, VFX and finishing houses are left with few options that provide the performance, scale, and affordability needed to provide high-quality content on-time and on-budget. Without the proper hardware, bottlenecks cause delays that can derail project timelines and budgets requiring numerous revisions and lowering the overall quality of the production. Productions need affordable SSD storage that can handle the bandwidth and IOPS artists need to achieve uninterrupted creative flow.
