Concurrent Computer Corporation: Portugal's NOS Deploys Aquari Storage for Cloud DVR

Software-Defined Storage Solution Enables Personalized TV on Internet
Connected Devices

ATLANTA, Sept. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Concurrent (NASDAQ:CCUR), a global
provider of high-performance Linux® and storage solutions, today announced
that NOS, Portugal's market-leading communications and entertainment company,
has deployed Concurrent's Aquari(TM) software-defined storage solution to
enable cloud-based digital video recording (CDVR) services related to their
new UMA personalized TV service. UMA is the latest multi-screen video service
offering from NOS, which features intelligent voice controls, personalized
recommendations, consumer-driven video recording of broadcast programs, and
cross-device video streaming to televisions and Internet connected devices.
The new service pairs Aquari's scale-out storage capabilities with
Concurrent's Upshift(TM) content delivery solution to support high-capacity
video recording and streaming. Concurrent's solution is fully integrated with
software developed by NOS to support business management, content management,
and visually-rich consumer-facing user interfaces.

"We needed a better, more cost-effective storage platform to support
multi-screen video content and the advanced scaling capabilities of the
Aquari platform were ideally suited to our application," said Pedro Bandeira,
Product Development Director at NOS. "We have developed a best-in-class
business intelligence layer on top of Aquari's storage in order to deliver
the most advanced entertainment experience to our customers."

"We are thrilled to work with a thought leader like NOS that recognizes the
benefits of our open, software-defined storage solution for scaling-out next
generation video services," said Scott Ryan, SVP and GM of Concurrent's
Aquari storage business. "Aquari's unique capabilities are perfect for
applications like cloud DVR, where both high-performance and high-capacity
are required to support the explosive demand for time-shifted video content."

Aquari storage is based on open-source Ceph®, which features exabyte scaling
and simultaneous support for multiple workloads. Unlike traditional storage
alternatives, Aquari can scale performance and capacity independently, which
translates to improved flexibility and a reduced total cost of ownership. Six
of the top 25 multiple system operators in North America and several market
leading operators in Europe now use the Aquari platform to support
multi-screen streaming and video recording services.

The Aquari solution at NOS was sold through Satcab, Concurrent's trusted
partner and a leading system integrator of professional broadcast solutions
and services for the Iberian Peninsula and Africa.

Concurrent will be showcasing the Aquari storage solution at the IBC show in
Amsterdam on September 9-13 at the RAI Convention Centre, stand 2.B31.
