Hello.

I am the Silent Brick Drive.

The Silent Brick Drive is a storage appliance for backup and archiving, featuring 2 slots for Silent Brick storage media.

Archival Storage – File server and compliant archive with 2 slots, up to 24 TB each (gross). The linear, self-contained file system acts like an integrated data protection level. 

Backup Storage – Store incremental backups on re-writable NAS volumes and full backups on self-protected SecureNAS or VTL – ideal for Veeam.

Thanks to the movable Silent Bricks and the option for replication, the Drive is ideally suited for distributed installations with a central storage. With the replication taking place on a per-Silent-Brick basis, data from a remote location is exactly locatable in the central storage.

Highlights
  • 1 U, 2 slots
  • Up to 48 TB (gross, uncompressed)
  • E-Paper display as electronic label
  • Supports Silent Brick, Silent Brick Flash and Silent Brick WORM
  • Every slot /Silent Brick can be individually configured as NAS, SecureNAS or VTL
  • Supports local and remote replication of Silent Bricks
  • Exchange Silent Bricks between Drives and Silent Brick Systems

Applications

Backup Storage

Moving Terabytes to Petabytes, increasing data dependency, and a growing number of attacks from ransomware require improved concepts for backup & recovery. Silent Bricks scale elastically, are individually configurable, and can be combined for any backup application as NAS, SecureNAS and VTL in a single system.

File Storage

To reduce burden on primary storage and backups, move mostly inactive file to a dedicated file storage, also known as active archive. Silent Bricks with SecureNAS offer integrated data protection.
