Tiger Store, Tiger Bridge, Tiger Pool, Tiger Space - Tiger Technology

Revitalize your storage and data management strategy with software and appliances by Tiger Technology.​​

Your data management strategy has never mattered more. Tiger Technology gives you the tools that help you optimize your storage infrastructure. Tiger Technology offers cross-industry solutions for companies of any size, scale, and storage infrastructure. 

High-Speed File System Sharing

Connect any number of high-performance LAN and/or SAN clients. Tiger Store lets you easily build the most scalable NAS and SAN platforms. Used in-band as a metadata/data server, it will maximize your server performance. When one server is no longer enough, just connect multiple servers (and/or clients) to your storage and let Tiger Store arbitrate accesses to it.

Ideal For:

  • Building a highly scalable storage infrastructure
  • Providing high-availability access to users
  • Enjoying high-performance block-level connectivity
  • Integrating Mac, Linux and Windows seamlessly
  • Connecting SAN and LAN clients to the same storage
  • Smoothing-out 4K and 8K DPX workflows

Continuous Data Protection and Storage Management​

Store, protect and manage your critical data on-premises and in the cloud

Save up to 80% on storage costs - download Tiger Bridge today and reclaim your premium storage by using local and low-cost cloud data storage tiers. Get full data protection, backup and archive, and instant disaster recovery. Bring cloud scale and services to your premises without any disruption to your workflows.

Ideal For:

  • Capacity Management
  • Backup & Archive
  • Disaster Recovery
  • Multi-sites File Collaboration
  • Performance Tiering
  • Edge Servers

Virtual Volume Set Manager

Combine multiple storage islands into a unified volume.

Tiger Pool makes it easy to combine multiple live volumes in a unified and manageable pool of storage. With Tiger Pool, it is no longer needed to augment capacity by stretching an existing file system (ouch, risky!) or by creating a new and separate volume silo (difficult to manage!) Simply add live volume(s) to your pool and enjoy all the extra space!

Ideal For:
  • Resize a live volume dynamically and without risks
  • Migrate live data to a new volume (or server)
  • Consolidate disparate storage resources
  • Decommission aging storage resources

Project Workspace Manager

Manage users and projects with virtual workspaces

Tiger Spaces isolates users from your physical storage through the creation, allocation and management of virtual volumes (i.e. workspaces). Tiger Spaces can also enable Avid bin-locking capability on Tiger Store managed volume as well as any NAS. It ensures users stay connected to their data, even after you moved their files around. The optional Tiger Spaces|MAM module from IMC Technologies further enhances efficiency of Rich Media & Entertainment workflows by providing a robust Media Asset Management.

Ideal For:

  • Streamlining your collaborative workflow
  • Optimizing storage utilization among multiple silos
  • Preventing prying-eyes from accessing critical content
  • Keeping track of storage utilization and project access
