Frequently asked questions

Q: What's new to the Silent Cube DS?
A: The Silent Cube DS is available in 19-inch format, making it ideal for rack mounting. It is available in net capacities of 4, 8, 16, 32 and - new - 64 TB and is based on our modern DS platform. In combination with the corresponding connection, this offers significantly higher performance than the original Silent Cube. What has remained the same are the 12 data carriers with quadruple redundant protection through erasure coding, WORM sealing via hardware, the digital audit for automatic self-checking and the certification for compliant archiving and DSGVO compliance.

Q: Can Silent Cubes DS be connected to existing Silent Cube systems?
A: Yes, if the system is configured with a Head Unit C4 or Head Unit for VMware®. We offer a changeover for systems with Head Unit C2, as well as for Silent Cube Compact systems.

Q: Do Silent Cube DS systems need new software?
A: We always recommend updating to the latest software version. Silent Cubes DS are fully supported as of version 2.99.

Q: Is it possible to migrate multiple Silent Cubes to one Silent Cube DS?
A: Yes, we even explicitly recommend it. The Silent Cube DS is based on the modern DS platform and is equipped for the years to come. The extension of existing maintenance contracts with up to 10 additional years is therefore possible.
