MUMBAI: Technology can be a boon if used wisely and a bane if misused. In today’s fast paced world one can’t do without it and serving this very purpose is the Singapore based technology solution provider Tyrone Systems.
 
For over a decade now, Tyrone has been instrumental in helping companies across the globe run highly complex businesses efficiently, securely, and reliably. One of the leading providers of servers, storage, back-up, and high performance computing (HPC) solutions, it targets to provide technology blocks customised to achieve business goals.
 
The company recently launched Tyrone EDRA, a cloud based HPC-on-demand solution made available to customers on demand and on a pay as you use basis with immediate effect. By moving HPC applications to the cloud, the users seek to do away with risks associated with under-provisioning, under-utilisation of HPC resources while benefiting immensely from built in virtualisation support available in cloud based HPC environments.
 
Speaking to indiantelevision.com Tyrone Systems co-founder & director Sandeep Lodha says: “We provide storage devices and solutions for TV channels. The news channels use a lot of IT applications; and with cameras on the ground and a number of OB vans, videos have become a important asset which needs to be saved and tracked consistently, since information is stored only in digital format these days. So storage becomes a very important factor.”
 
Tyrone has an old association with the media and entertainment sector and it has created a niche for itself in the sector in India, Srilanka and Malaysia among others. It has a number of broadcast channels and post production names under its customer base including, Gulmarg TV (Malaysia), Maharaja TV (Srilanka) and TV9 (India).
 
“70 per cent of the media and entertainment sector have implemented the solutions from Tyrone Systems and we are in talks with a lot more to get on board,” Lodha expounds.
 
Similarly, in terms of post production Tyrone is well equipped with digital formatting. It helps in analogue to digital and vice versa; colour enhancement is a very important factor in post production as well and the company is doing its best to cater to the needs of the stakeholders.
 
“We believe India is poised to play a big role in global opportunity for HPC applications and related services,” Lodha exults. “With the launch of Tyrone EDRA on-demand and pay-as-you-use HPC solutions, we believe we are bringing HPC within reach of those academic and commercial users, who hitherto could not afford to invest in this high capex and opex intensive application environment.”
