Tiger Technology Demos AWS Workflows For Tiger Bridge

Cloud storage and data management firm Tiger Technology will focus on data management and optimizing storage use.

Tiger Bridge, the company's storage management system, extends the Windows NFTS file system to provide an effective interface to the cloud and supports network-attached or direct-attached (NAS/DAS) storage or tape archives. It was designed to ensure that data is stored in the right place at the right time at the right cost.

Tiger Bridge will be shown unlocking the value of archived data, moving it to Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud computing system, for indexing by Overcast HQ MAM. The latest version will display features such as short data retrieval times using recently added partial restore capabilities.

The system is certified by Microsoft, AWS, IBMWasabi and Backblaze, and includes native support for Spectra Logic and Qualstar archive and backup systems. Among the organizations and facilities using it are ESPN, Xbox and London post-production house ENVY.

The company's content management tools include: Tiger Store for managing high-performance multi-user collaborative workflows; Tiger Spaces, designed for multi-user project management and Avid bin locking; and the virtual storage manager, Tiger Pool.

Joining Tiger at IBC will be UK IT workflow systems provider ERA, and New York-based Media Translation Inc, which develops transition methods from tape to the cloud using Tiger Technology products.
