Introducing Monument 2

It's now faster and more reliable than ever.

The next generation photo storage

Monument 2.0 is reimagined to transform your photo management experience.

Speed, smarts and privacy, all right here -above and beyond.


🏎 Faster and more intelligent

Monument 2 is built from the ground up, on a totally new architecture -it's now 10x times faster and provides more accuracy with face recognition and organizing your photos.‍

SSD Storage
