But if you do want buy that much storage we are willing to take your order and give you a nice discount! The BrickStor Architecture uses the concepts of Stacks. Each Stack Consists of a BrickStor Foundation Unit (Head Node) and BrickStor Bricks (JBOD). The combination of a Foundation Unit and a Brick creates a stack. You can grow your stack by adding more Bricks and more data disk capacity. You can also add more performance by adding special caching disks to increase random Write and Read IO performance at any time.
