Interesting. After reading your post, Tim, and scanning through the thread, I see a lot of people mention "storage", but I saw no one write about Symply Storage.

Being in the market segment that I'm in, using big stornext file systems for shared post environments, I know of peers who were leery of seeing what these guys were announcing because of history. I didn't have a good reaction to the tease of the new company either, to be perfectly honest.

I have to say, after seeing what they announced I was pleasantly surprised. It's not a product for me or the facility I run, but it is basically an easy to set up, miniaturized version of what I run. This was never a possibility before. And the beauty of it is that is just an easy thunderbolt connection to the clients.

The coolest part to me is that I think they can develop a nice little ecosystem on the box (the base unit) for cool ad ons. These ad ons will help the little studio do business in a way that has never really been possible or affordable for them before.

We saw a company last year that had a small thunderbolt san. This Symply thing is different, and pretty well thought out.

I'm anxious to see how they do.

There were other things, but I'd bore this group with those details.
