FREMONT, Calif. — CyArk is working with the data storage company Seagate to manage CyArk’s archives of data on cultural heritage. 

CyArk implemented Seagate’s storage-as-a-service platform Lyve Cloud for data management, gaining “full control” of its data without vendor lock-in or egress fees,  according to Seagate last month.

CyArk also used Seagate’s Lyve Mobile data transfer services to efficiently migrate their massive data sets from multiple on-premises storage devices and a server to Lyve Cloud.

The nonprofit organization is dedicated to digitally recording, archiving, and sharing cultural heritage sites with researchers, historians, and educators. Each project generates multiple terabytes of unstructured data.  

CyArk went to a fully remote workforce during the pandemic, reducing access to their dedicated on-premises server that houses massive project data sets. 

They needed a solution that could provide their employees and stakeholders with always-on, secure, and timely access to their data, regardless of location.

“Digital transformation is critical for business continuity through the pandemic,” said Jeff Fochtman, SVP of business and marketing, Seagate. 

Fochtman said Seagate helped CyArk with common mass data storage challenges related to cost and complexity. 

He said he’s “a huge fan of CyArk’s mission” and “proud to support their passionate team.” 

CyArk’s CEO, John Ristevski, said as “a data-centric organization, data mobility and accessibility are essential, so we needed to rethink the way we store, manage and share our data.” 

Ristevski said after exploring options, CyArk found Lyve Cloud could provide them with “the most streamlined data access, sustain our workflows without disruption, and enhance productivity.”
