Why are our products called Silent Cubes / Bricks?

One could speculate that "Silent" refers to the low noise of the product itself. This might still be true for the Silent Cube, especially when the memory module is in standby (it only consumes 2 watts). However, anyone who starts a Silent Brick System will quickly realize that this can hardly be true.

In IT, the term "silent" is used differently: as a background process that runs without the user's intervention. For example, there are silent updates (updates performed automatically in the background), or silent SMS that are not displayed on the cell phone.

This is also what we expect from our storage systems: to perform the service in the background, reliably and largely without any necessary interaction.
