Note: When using Tiger Serve|1U and Tiger Serve|2U, SAN performance is only bond to your storage infrastructure. We have field installs with sustained throughput to SAN clients exceeding 20GB/sec (160Gbps) and performing multiple streams of 4K DPX color grading. For LAN clients, performance would be the same as Box|1U8 or Box|3U16 with SSD.

(1) Stream count measured in our lab using typical video editing application. Please use as ballpark figure. Tiger cannot guarantee you will get the exact same numbers in the field as results will vary based on your particular application, traffic pattern and network topology.
(2) All Fibre Channel and 10GbE optical connections include SFP+ of 10BASE LC-type. The 40GbE connection does not.
(3) Performance per port. These numbers represent read performance measured in our lab using practical test cases and Tiger Client driver. Actual performance may vary in the field based on your applications, motherboard, drivers, HBA, switch, protocol, etc. Also note that these numbers are also bound to the total performance capabilities of your storage unit.
(4) An iSCSI initiator must be ordered separately.
(5) Tiger Store|FCT Fibre Channel Target module must be ordered separately. Note that Tiger Store|FCT module is only available when ordering a Tiger appliance.
(6) All Tiger appliances come with dual, hot-swappable power supplies and it is possible to order additional system memory.
(7) The Tiger Box|3U16 requires the addition of an Expansion Kit (see below) in order support up to four Tiger Exp|3U16 expansion chassis.
