left to right: Silent Brick WORM, Silent Brick, Silent Brick Flash

Hello.

I am the Silent Brick. I am available in configurations with SSD's or hard disks, from 3 to 24 TB (gross), and with optional hardware WORM sealing.

The Silent Brick storage container is the heart of all Silent Brick Systems.

Featuring 12 drives, it is available as all-flash with 3, 6 or 12 TB, or with hard disks with 12 or 24 TB gross capacity.

The Silent Brick has been designed as rugged and (re-) movable online and offlline data container. Depending on the configuration, data is protected through dual or triple parity, or through our linear file system with Erasure Coding and 4 redundancies.

All models are also available as Silent Brick WORM with our hardware WORM sealing. Together with one of the 100+ certified software applications, this enables compliant archiving within the Silent Brick System.

Highlights
  • 12 drives per Silent Brick, SSD (Flash) or hard disks
  • Gross capacities: 3, 6 or 12 TB (Flash) /  12 or 24 TB (hard disks)
  • Optional hardware WORM sealing
  • Each Silent Brick can be individually configured with dual or triple parity (random write/read, NAS), or with Erasure Coding and 4 redundancies (linear write / random read, SecureNAS or VTL)

Silent Bricks contain 12 SSD's or hard disks, are (re-) movable, and can easily repaired without special tools.

Compliant Archiving comes to the Silent Brick System: the Silent Brick WORM features our hardware WORM sealing that has been proven in thousands of Silent Cubes installations. Together with one of 100+ Approved Solutions, this enables compliant archiving (according to D, A, CH regulations, e.g. GDPdU, GoBS, RöV).

The Silent Brick WORM is available with SSD's (all-flash) or hard disks, with net capacity of 2, 4, 8 and 16 TB each (SecureNAS with linear file system and Erasure Coding / 4 redundancies).

 

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.
