Long DescriptionSilent Cube DS and Silent Cube DS Pro are based on the flexible DS platform and offer up to 128TB net capacity for the Silent Cube system on one height unit. By adding more Silent Cube DS (Pro), the total capacity can be expanded up to petabytes. Hardware WORM sealing prevents tampering and accidental erasure of written data. The Silent Cube DS (Pro) is certified for compliant archiving in appropriate systems. A Head Unit (model C4 or later) or Head Unit for VMware® is required for operation. Silent Cube DS and Silent Cube DS Pro can also be connected to existing Silent Cubes systems (with Head Unit model C4 or later or HU for VMware®).
