OUR STORY

OUR STORY

Over two years ago we set out to create a new fully self-contained storage system with no moving parts or connectors that would be shock-proof, vibration-proof and self-powered with an unattended useful life of 20+ years.

We envisioned an arbitrarily large – zettabyte plus – continuously accessible object store with a total cost of ownership that would be less than half of conventional disks.

TODAY, THAT VISION IS REALITY
