    Hi Bernard

    One thing to note – please make sure Tiger is represented at NAB and the PAL-based convention in Amsterdam.

    I had to make a decision on a SAN system last NAB, and tiger was on my shortlist until I realised I could not see it and talk to the people first hand at NAB.

    A SAN is the type of system that the end users can not buy over the internet – we have to see it working and ask relevant questions on the spot before we can make up our minds.

    In my case, I’ve made up my mind, and once a client has purchased a SAN it’s not easy to change.

    Hi Francois,

    Because of the nature of SAN software, we have chosen to team up with storage vendors to demonstrate the unique capabilities of our solution. At NAB, Tiger Technology teamed up with ADTX to demonstrate a fully working SAN based on the ADTX L-Series. I also believe you had arranged for a demonstration with us. It is definitely unfortunate that you couldn’t make it, as our technical and sales representatives were anxious to meet with you.

    I, among with other Tiger representatives, will also be present at IBC. And once again, we will be exhibiting with a number of storage partners. I understand that it would be nice for Tiger to have its own booth, but for good or for bad, we have chosen to demonstrate real working solutions that people can buy. This choice meant we had to allocate our finite resources to our partners’ booth. I’d certainly be interrested to know what you and others think. Your suggestions and comments are welcome and will help us figure what is best for the future.

    With regards to changing SAN software, you are right again: it isn’t an easy thing to do. However, Tiger does offer eval licences to those willing to give us a try!

    Thanks for expressing interest in our solution.

    All the best!


    BTW If you have any good reseller names to suggest in South Africa, please do so. We would love to expand in your territory!

    I missed that… I was actually at the ADTX booth – spoke to Sergio about the quote I recieved from our local ADTX resellers, which I eventually ordered. I did not realise they were running a full SAN… Damn…

    well, I guess I’ll maybe see you next time.

    I’m sorry to hear that… Well, as long as you are satisfied with the solution you ended up purchasing, I guess there is no harm!

    The world has shrunk into a very small place lately. I am sure we will eventually run into each other somewhere!

    All the best!
