Seagate has been around for over 40 years (in some form) and is primarily known for HDDs, particularly high-capacity HDDs. The company has been reaching its tentacles out and branching into other areas of storage including its consumer storage and more and more SSDs. Seagate Lyve Cloud works as a natural extension taking the company’s hardware in the form of high-capacity storage and its expertise in storage to help customers get more value out of their unstructured data.

To get Seagate Lyve Cloud to more customers the company is locating Lyve Cloud infrastructure in close proximity to Equinix Metal within Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers. This allows customers to consume object storage as a service even at the metro edge. Users also have access to Equinix Fabric to interconnect sources of data to a variety of edge and cloud-based applications for hybrid and multi-cloud architectures. All of the above can also reduce latency as the data is stored closer to where it is created.

Customers looking to lower TCO but are worried about lock-in can quell those fears as Seagate won’t lock them in and has no egress fees. Lyve Cloud is also ISO27001 and SOC2 certified.

Seagate will delve deeper into the details of Lyve Cloud and the rest of the Lyve portfolio at the Datasphere 2021 virtual event on March 30, 2021.
