The Tiger Series
Simple. Powerful. Complete.

Ideal for content-centric workflows and rich media applications, the Tiger Series solution family is designed to make storage workflows easier, faster, and more reliable. The Tiger Series platform provides a simple and complete solution for shared storage workflows that manage themselves. Workspace, project. user, media, and metadata management, including backup and archive, and hierarchical storage management, is available with projectStore PRO and Replication & Tiering to form a complete yet easy data workflow solution.

Workflows matter

With the Tiger Series, you get powerful accelerated workflows that make collaboration easy, and optimize your storage resources. You can easily run popular production and post-production tools, including Avid emulation with bin-locking, and deploy intelligent policy-based tiering, replication, and hierarchical storage management to keep them running at peak performance.

Simple and smart

The Tiger Series offers more than just a SAN or NAS. The Tiger Intelligent Storage Workflow Engine simplifies setup, configuration, and management of your shared storage and frees you from IT administration hassles. Easily set up your system in just a few clicks, and then let it manage itself with automatic defragmentation and sequence optimization, so you can focus on workflow, not system maintenance.
