General product family overview: Simplify your backup with Silent Bricks. On-premise storage appliances with integrated data protection for all NAS and VTL requirements. Media replication and rotation. Online, offline and off-site, with support for air gap environments. All in one system. The Silent Brick System is based on modular and transportable storage units called 'Silent Bricks' where each Silent Brick consists of 12 Disks. Depending on the Silent Brick Type these disks may be HDD (Silent Brick ) or SSD ( Silent Brick FLASH ).
The assignment is done on a per Brick Basis where each Brick can act as a Backup to Disk Storage, a virtual Tape Library or an Archival Storage. The redundancy when set up as Backup to Disk Storage is configurable with 2 or 3 Parities per Silent Brick. A SecureNAS Volume can then be spanned over 1 to many Silent Bricks. Extending a SecureNAS Volume is possible on the fly by assigning additional Bricks. The parities will still be on a per Silent Brick Basis. For optimal performance the Silent Brick System offers dual 10GB Ethernet connection.
