"Over the next few years, we will continue to upgrade our backup and archive systems to the FAST LTA Silent Brick System and expand existing solutions."

Fast Incrementals, Reliable Restore Points, Secure Air Gap:
3-2-1 Backup - All In One Silent Brick System
With the Silent Brick System you are prepared for all backup challenges. In a single system, with a single point of contact and a single service level agreement.
Modern backup strategies put high demands on the storage system. According to the 3-2-1 rule, at least 3 instances should be realized on at least 2 different media, of which at least one instance should be offline-capable.
1st instance: Incremental backups via SecureNAS to Silent Brick or Silent Brick Flash
2nd instance: Long-term restore points and full backups (Grandfather/Father/Son - GFS) via SecureNAS on Silent Bricks or Silent Brick DS
3rd instance: Offline-capable full backups via VTL or SecureNAS with media rotation on Silent Bricks
Maximum Protection For Your Data
The time machine against Ransomware: Continuous Snapshots automatically record every change on the volume. Should an attack succeed in compromising network backups or deleting data, you can always revert to previous versions.
Example with 4 days duration
- Each day, a new snapshot is created, which records the changes on the storage medium like layers in a separate area that is not accessible by the file system.
- On the 5th day the basic snapshot and the first layer are merged, so there are always the same number of snapshots available.
- If a snapshot is now corrupted (e.g. compromised by ransomware), you can return to the previous snapshot.
Silent Bricks are offline capable. Whatever happens in your network - data stored offline is immune to attacks. So you can be safe even without legacy tapes: Your data is protected.
The Silent Brick is an approx. 2 kg light, power-free storage container, which is equipped with 12 storage media (hard disks or SSDs). If required, it can be removed from the Silent Brick System and stored in a secure location (air gap).
Erasure Coding 12/8 offers twice the security of RAID-6, ideal for full backups and archives.
Our hardware WORM sealing guarantees protection against deletion and manipulation, is certified by KPMG and cannot be bypassed by any admin in the world.
By replicating individual Silent Bricks to a second location, the data is protected against loss through theft or disaster.
Our systems are designed to protect your data without compromise. We ensure reliable operation with the highest quality components and long-term maintenance contracts.
Elastic Secondary Storage for Backup and Archive
The Silent Brick System‘s movable storage media is independent from its general storage IT. This guarantees high-performance components for connections, and also allows for maximum flexibility and individual configuration of the media. Also, it enables replication on a per-media basis, ease of transport and off-site storage.
» Silent Bricks
The Silent Brick DS is a storage extension for the Silent Brick System with up to 192 TB per height unit - ideally suited for high-capacity archiving and backup applications.
