Silent Brick DS

The latest (and biggest) addition to the Silent Brick product family is the Silent Brick DS, a 1U local version of a Silent Brick with 96 or 192 TB gross capacity, each. Just like all Silent Bricks, the DS features 12 hard disks with selectable redundancy, and allows for tape-like TCO at minimum rack space…

SecureNAS

Acknowledging the requirement of NAS capabilities, we added SecureNAS to the Silent Brick System. Depending on the security and performance requirements, the user can chose between Erasure Coding with 4 redundancies and linear write mode, and ZFS-based dual or triple parity which particularly makes sense in random write/read scenarios, such as incremental backups.

Silent Brick WORM

And of course, there is also a version of the Silent Brick with hardware WORM sealing, enabling legally compliant archiving within the Silent Brick System. Based on the very same technologies that have been developed back in 2007, the Silent Brick WORM uses Erasure Coding, Digital Audit and hardware sealing to protect the data. Like…

Silent Brick Flash

The need for faster file access led to a logical product line expansion: The Silent Brick Flash features SSDs instead of disk drives and is especially suited for applications with lots of random access, such as incremental backups or DMS archiving for millions of small files. It is available in 3, 6 and 12 TB…

Silent Brick Drive

Adding a smaller version to the Silent Brick product portfolio was the plan from the beginning. The Silent Brick Drive features 2 slots and works perfectly as small backup appliance, file server or archiving storage. It could also network to a Silent Brick System for replication.

New look

With the advent of Silent Bricks, we felt the need to freshen up our presence in the competitive battlefield. The new color was 100% CYAN, bold and confident.

10 years SLA

Usually, SLAs in the IT business run for 3 years. After that, one would either have to re-invest in new hardware, or extend the existing SLA, in most cases at higher rates. We had already increased the standard SLA runtime to 5 years, and now doubled that to 10 – at the very same conditions.…

Silent Bricks

With the introduction of Silent Bricks, we expanded our target markets towards tape archives and backup storage. Initially only available as VTL – virtual tape library – Silent Bricks could replace existing tape installations 1:1. Users could keep the benefits of tape (offline, relatively inexpensive) and gain the benefits of disks (random access, redundancy). Silent…

COLD Storage

Apart from archiving, backup had became a huge market. Most backups, however, were still on tape. The new concept of COLD STORAGE – Cost Optimized Linear Disk Storage – was developed with the aim to combine the benefits of tape (offline, inexpensive) and disk-based storage systems (random access, redundancy, replication). Erasure Coding and was the…

Reseller and partner network

Most major application providers have now been certified to work seamlessly with Silent Cubes. Smaller ones with specialized market access followed along. In addition, our Certified Reseller program grew rapidly within Europe.
