fragmentiX CLUSTER  

fragmentiX CLUSTER - Store your Customers' Data  Digitally Sovereign

The fragmentiX CLUSTER is the high performance type of the fragmentiX products. It is multi-client capable and suitable for government, service providers and data centers.  In order to maintain continuous operation, a fragmentiX CLUSTER system consists of two servers, Node A and Node B.    In the event of a fault, Node B, configured as hot standby, takes over the functions of Node A practically without delay.        

To enable a worldwide use of our technology, fragmentiX has entered into a global OEM partnership with Dell/EMC Technologies. 
Dell produces the fragmentiX CLUSTER hardware according to our specifications. All security relevant components are developed and produced by fragmentiX and installed on the hardware without Dell participation at fragmentiX headquarters in Austria or our subsidiary in Switzerland. 

fragmentiX also offers all its fragmentiX CLUSTER customers a worldwide proven and well functioning customer service via Dell Technologies' support service with a four hour on site response time.

fragmentiX Technology

The fragmentiX CLUSTER ensures that directories and files that are copied or moved to these 'fragmentiX drives' are divided, securely distributed among storage locations of your choice. The operating system frXOS provides network drives for all common network protocols at the green marked 'LAN port' of the device. Even in mixed environments, the appropriate drive shares for Windows, MacOS and Linux devices can be provided simultaneously. Those fragments are made available to the users at the network drive/share by these storage locations for reading or editing. To the users storing data with fragmentiX is not more complicated thanstoring it on a local file server.

Act for your digital sovereignty. A call or message will take you closer to your digital sovereignty.

A separate configuration can be created for each conceivable use case.

The fragmentiX CLUSTER is the multi-client capable high performance model of the fragmentiX Storage Appliances. The highly efficient and redundantly designed cluster hardware is designed for use in data centers and company headquarters as well as for service providers and consists of two fault-tolerant cluster nodes. The fragmentiX CLUSTER ensures with fragmentiX Secret Sharing that data is protected with real information theoretic security (ITS). Data is stored completely transparent for the administrator on up to 26 freely definable storage locations in S3 compatible buckets. The optimal mix of public and private S3 storage locations can be selected for each use case using a scenario definition.

The desired effect can be achieved for each user group or each individual customer:

  • High data resilience

  • Low-cost long-term archiving

  • ITS protected backup files in the cloud

  • High-performance-data storage

  • Nextcloud services for clients

  • S3 integration as proxy in existing applications without changing the application

The operating system frXOS provides multi-client capability at the green marked 'LAN ports' of the fragmentiX CLUSTER network drives for all common network protocols. Even in mixed environments, the appropriate drive shares can be provided simultaneously for Windows, MacOS and Linux devices. Directories and files that are copied or moved to these 'fragmentiX drives' are divided into several fragments after a short processing time and stored on the storage locations defined for them. For 'reading' or editing, these fragments are then made available by these storage locations to the users at the network drive/share. For the users, it is not recognizable that the data is not stored on the local file server, but is stored with fragmentiX.

fragmentiX Secret Sharing. By specifying the 'frX ratio' you determine how many of the generated fragments are required to restore the original data. The smallest 'frX ratio' of 2/3 or '2 out of 3' means that out of three generated fragments at least two are required to restore the data. It does not matter 'which two' files from the set of three fragments are available - all fragments are equal.

How does fragmentiX Secret Sharing work?

Information Theoretic Security. Thanks to its secure and hardened architecture and the use of secret sharing algorithms tested over many years, the fragmentiX CLUSTER offers a solution with a cryptographic guarantee. No single fragment contains usable information for an attacker. No part of the original file can be recovered or cracked. The self-defined number of fragments generated and required for reading, guarantees that access and reading is only possible by having the minimum number of fragments.

Multi-Client Capability. The fragmentiX CLUSTER offers service providers the possibility to provide each client/customer with a data-technically isolated usage environment. Depending on the performance requirements of the individual customers, several hundred individual customers can also be served with a fragmentiX CLUSTER. In principle a customer-dependent cost allocation (CDR) is possible and can be implemented for a fee based on the requirements.

Storage Locations. All data stored with the fragmentiX CLUSTER are stored as fragments on the defined storage locations after the cryptographic division into fragments - NO data remains locally on the fragmentiX CLUSTER. The following storage types can be selected as storage locations:

  • S3 compatible cloud storage on the Internet

  • Local S3 compatible memory available in LAN / VPN

The different storages can be combined in any way and a variety of effects such as extreme resistance or digital long-term availability are made possible. Due to the increased redundancy provided by the fragmentiX CLUSTER, cheaper storage providers can be selected or combined with premium providers and/or local S3 storage.

Industrial Hardware. The fragmentiX CLUSTER, which is finished in Austria, is designed for long-term stable operation without hardware maintenance.To protect against theft and manipulation by unauthorized persons, the device is prepared for installation in protected rooms with 19 inch server racks.

Hardened frXOS Software Environment. frXOS - the hardened operating system of the fragmentiX CLUSTER - was developed in order to make the use for users and administrators both secure and simple. All functions are kept up to date through regular updates, which can be carried out either via the internet or via USB sticks sent to the user. A valid maintenance contract is required to receive the latest frXOS updates at the end of the first year.

Multi WAN. In order to make it more difficult for attackers to intercept fragments, several WAN connections and ISP's should be used.

Configuration and Protection Measures. Changes to the configuration can only be made by an administrator via a specially protected WEB interface. The use of state-of-the-art Crypto-USB sticks ensures that all security-relevant data can only be read on the respective fragmentiX CLUSTER and be modified by the authorised administrator. Without the YELLOW 'CONFIG ENABLE' USB stick, no one can access the sensitive information.

Facts: Hardened frxOS operating system on two redundant working servers, protected BIOS, Quad Xeon CPU, up to 26 locations, NICS: 8 x 10 GBit LAN / 8 x 10 GBit WAN, € 62,000,- ex. VAT & maintenance 15% annually.

You are in Control.

Only you have access to your data. You choose every single storage for your fragments. You select the frX ratio - you define the resilience and data availability.

Quantum-Safe

Not even quantum computers can construct data with one single fragment. Cryptographic guarantee & information theoretic security!

No Data Loss.

Thanks to secret sharing your data is ideally stored for a long-time. Even if one of your fragments is not available, the existing fragments are sufficient to reconstruct your data.

fragmentiX products are simple to use long time storage solutions

that are secure even in the age of quantum computers.
