Silent Cube DS Pro

Thousand-proven technology in 19-inch format. Secure long-term storage with WORM sealing provides storage up to 64 TB (net) per unit.


Flexible billing for your archive storage: With FAST LTA FLEX , we offer billing for Silent Cubes Pro systems based on actual capacity used.

As with cloud-based storage, you only pay for what you actually use. We provide expansion, maintenance and all updates.

Second location without the need for a second location: with  FASTLTA STAR we provide protection for your Silent Cubes system in the event of a disaster. 

Your local system (or your first FLEX instance) is replicated in our data center. This means that your data is always backed up, even in the event of a total failure.

Silent Cube DS Pro.
Systems with larger storage capacities usually also require higher performance. That is why we have now upgraded the 16, 32 and 64 TB models with 10G Ethernet, redundant of course. Together with the new Head Unit Pro, this enables installations with an end-to-end 10G infrastructure. Ideal for new modalities and modern archive applications that need that little bit extra.


  • Compatible with all Silent Cube systems
  • Based on DS platform
  • WORM sealing via hardware
  • Erasure coding with quadruple redundancy
  • Digital audit with self-healing
  • Disk Mix – 4 discs each from 3 batches
  • Climate neutral (CO2 offsetting): production, transport, disposal

Expanded Description:
Silent Cube DS and Silent Cube DS Pro are based on the flexible DS platform and offer up to 64 TB of net capacity for the Silent Cube system on a single unit. Adding more Silent Cube DS (Pro) can expand the total capacity 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 use. The Silent Cube DS and Silent Cube DS Pro can also be connected to existing Silent Cubes systems if necessary (with Head Unit model C4 or later or HU for VMware).

Compliant archiving in 19-inch format
The Silent Cube DS in 19-inch format is the new generation of our WORM storage for compliant archiving. Based on our powerful DS platform, it is capable of decades of secure archiving with net capacities from 4 to 64 TB per unit – also available as an upgrade for existing Silent Cubes systems.

Next Generation. DS. For the Future.
Huge: up to 64 TB (net) in 19-inch format
Proven: Erasure Coding & Hardware WORM
Certified: Audit-proof, and AVG-compliant
Scalable: At any time, even retroactively
Compatible: with any Silent Cube system

Slim on the outside, huge on the inside: the Silent Cube DS offers 4, 8, 16, 32 or 64 TB of capacity (net, uncompressed) per unit. If you like luxury: the original Silent Cube in the excellent cube design is still available.

Used a thousand times without data loss. The Silent Cube DS also protects your data like no other system with its mix of erasure coding with quadruple redundancy using 12 hard drives from 3 batches, linear file system, self-healing digital audit and 100% secure hardware WORM. Our customers have trusted it for more than 12 years!

Like all Silent Cubes, the Silent Cube DS is certified by KPMG for compliant archiving in accordance with German GDPdU, GoBS and RöV regulations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Certification also includes support for retention periods and subsequent “deletion,” i.e., making access impossible.

Expanding capacity is extremely easy with Silent Cubes. Connect a new Silent Cube to the head unit, log in and assign it in the graphical software interface, and you’re done. Moving data within the system – Silent Transfer, for example, to replace several smaller Silent Cubes with one large Silent Cube DS – is as easy as clicking the right mouse button, happens in the background and is also certified and audit-proof. Smart.

Especially brilliant: No need to modify your existing Silent Cube DS if you use a Head Unit C4 or Head Unit for VMware. Silent Cubes DS can be used alongside the original Silent Cubes without restrictions. This means that the Silent Cube DS is of course also compatible with the numerous software solutions of our technology partners.

Go Pro.
The new Pro models, together with the new Head Unit Pro, enable end-to-end 10G infrastructure. Prepared for modern modalities, demanding archive applications – and for the next 10 years and more.
