Tiger Bridge

Extending NTFS file systems to NAS, DAS, Tape and Cloud

An HSM Tiering & Synchronisation engine that protects and extend Windows servers by seamlessly extending the NTFS file system to DAS/NAS, tape and cloud and optimising data placement for frequent access, nearline and archive-ready files.

Tiger Bridge software-only solution does not require complex cloud storage gateway server or backup appliance. Tiger Bridge expands Windows NTFS file system capabilities with seamless tiering to cloud, NAS/DAS or tape. By optimising data placement for frequent access, nearline and archive-ready files, Tiger Bridge preserves Active Directory ACLs and ensures data is stored in the right place, at the right time.

Tiger Bridge requires no downtime to deploy and no change to user experience, application or workflow configuration.
