Our team at Helm is really excited to share details of our new V2 with all of you! We’ve been hard at work to get to this milestone and we’re thrilled about how this is coming together for a significantly reduced price as compared to our V1.
We’ve updated our website to reflect the new industrial design for Helm V2:
Here are some V2 hardware specs:
- Hexacore ARM SoC with dual Cortex-A73 @ 1.8GHz and quad Cortex-A53 cores @ 1.4GHz
- 4GB RAM (double the V1)
- 256 GB NVMe SSD (double the V1)
- Bluetooth 4.2
- 802.11 ab/c/g/n/ac 2x2 WiFi
- Gigabit Ethernet
- More compact form factor (5"x5"x1.3")
- Passively cooled
- Will be available in 512GB and 1TB capacities as well
- 256GB - $199 (60% less than V1)
- 512GB - $249
- 1 TB - $349
- Annual subscription - $99/yr includes 128GB of offsite encrypted backups, annual domain registration and DNS, security gateway
- Additional offsite encrypted storage will be available in larger plans (512GB - $149/yr and 2TB - $299/yr)
Customers who have already placed deposits will be first in line to receive new units. As we near shipping dates, we will be following up so customers can specify which storage capacity is desired and to take payment for the remaining balance.
I’m happy to answer any questions about the V2 product specs in this topic.
