The initiative aims to support the growth of talent and attract new professionals to join Tuxera.

Tuxera is pleased to announce our new sponsorship contract with the national chess championship team, who will be called Tuxera ANSK. We’d like to contribute to the tradition of chess playing excellence in Hungary, and in the process, put Tuxera in a position to attract new talent to our own ranks.

“We are very excited by this sponsorship. As the world’s need for data storage and handling is becoming increasingly complex, it’s important for Tuxera to actively support the growth of current and future talent in Hungary, and also around the world,” said Szabolcs Szakacsits, President and CTO of Tuxera. “This initiative is one of those opportunities. We value the great minds and look forward to further professionals joining Tuxera.”

Honoring a tradition of strategy and mental prowess

The chess club has seen success in numerous Hungarian and international challenges, with its members winning national team champion titles 13 times. Due to their achievements, a great number of outstanding players have joined the club over the years. Players like the World Champion Viswanathan Anand, Olympic Champion Lajos Portisch – and the world’s greatest female chess player of all time, Judit Polgár.

The origins of chess date back over 1,000 years, and the game remains as popular and celebrated today as ever, played by millions around the globe. While chess is enjoyed both as a hobby and a sport, the classic strategy game benefits the human mind – it contributes to the maintenance and improvement of brain function. Early childhood practice provides an unparalleled opportunity to develop young talent, while chess in old age assists in the prevention of dementia.[1]

Supporting the future in developer talent

Handling quality-assured data storage management software and networking technologies, Tuxera has been active in the Hungarian market since 2001. In 2021, we added to our global organization HCC Embedded, the Hungarian developer of embedded file systems, flash management, and network data transfer software. The new team has brought to Tuxera strong hardware enablement knowledge and expertise, deepening our commitment to delivering reliable data management solutions to the world.

Now, Tuxera seeks to actively support the ongoing growth of talent in Hungary as well – and with it, research and development opportunities on an international level. Tuxera sees supporting professional growth as an important part of enabling a future of sustainable and innovative embedded data storage management.

We work with many alliances, industry associations, and partners around the world.
