Seagate Announces Lyve Data Transfer Services, An On-Demand Service That Simplifies Edge-to-Cloud Workflows

Subscription-based services offload the network pipelines with secure and scalable massive data transport on Lyve Mobile Shuttle and Lyve Mobile Array

Through a virtual event, to which we were invited, Seagate Technology launched  with its fleet of Lyve Mobile data shuttles, arrays, and services, which enables businesses to move mass data quickly, securely, and simply from edge to private, public, or hybrid clouds. According to the firm, the new Lyve Data Transfer Services on-demand, web-based purchasing model enables customers to pay only for what they need, when they need it.

Businesses are generating massive amounts of data. Seagate’s Rethink Data report notes that enterprise data is expected to grow at an average annual rate of 42.2% over the next two years. And a new Seagate-commissioned IDC survey found that enterprises frequently move this data among different storage locations, including endpoints, edge, and cloud. In over a thousand businesses surveyed, more than half move data between storage locations daily, weekly, or monthly, and their average total of physical data transferred is 473 TB. The faster they can move this data from edge to core to cloud, the more quickly they can unlock insights and derive value from their data.

Seagate’s Lyve Data Transfer Services solution consists of Lyve Mobile modular and scalable hardware, purpose-built for simple and secure mass-capacity edge data storage, lift-and-shift initiatives, and other data movement for the enterprise. These products are cloud-vendor agnostic and can be integrated seamlessly with public or private cloud data centers and providers.  Lyve Data Transfer Services are now available through Seagate’s web site; customers simply sign up for Seagate’s data transfer services via a flexible subscription that scales up or down to meet evolving storage needs.

Florian Baumann, chief technical officer of Automotive and AI at Dell, stated: «Moving hundreds of terabytes of data from a fleet of vehicles to the data center poses numerous challenges for our customers. Seagate’s Lyve Data Transfer Services offer a great solution by physically moving data. It’s a simple and scalable solution and fills a gap that our customers had in the data gravity process.»
