FREMONT, Calif. — The data storage company Seagate Technology is rolling out its cloud storage-as-a-service platform for companies in Singapore.
Seagate is extending the availability of its Lyve Cloud S3-compatible storage-only cloud to Singapore after the product’s launch in the U.S. last year, according to the company last month.
Lyve Cloud is intended to enable enterprises to build “barrier-free” mass data environments through cloud storage.
Seagate believes enterprises are struggling to use their data efficiently. As much as two-thirds of the data available to enterprises is not used, due to data storage and management challenges, according to Seagate’s “Rethink Data” report.
Lyve Cloud is designed to provide enterprises with “simple, efficient, and well-integrated” cloud storage.
Over 50 companies are in the Lyve Cloud ecosystem network, including Zadara, Equinix and PacketFabric, to help customers use their cloud infrastructure.
Lyve Cloud’s ISO27001 and SOC2 certifications help it meet the data security needs of enterprise customers and provide always-on encryption for data in motion and at rest.
The product is set up to offer data privacy without lock-in, API charges, and egress fees. Customers can retain “full control of their data,” while working to lower total cost of ownership (TCO) to store, access, and move massive data sets.
“The Singapore launch marks Lyve Cloud’s anniversary, and I am proud that we are demonstrating our commitment to helping enterprises in more countries harness the flow of mass data,” said Ravi Naik, CIO and EVP of storage services for Seagate.
Seagate’s Singapore Lyve Cloud launch provides partner PacketFabric with the “opportunity to expand its storage offerings in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Anna Claiborne, co-founder and CTO of PacketFabric.
“Together, we can better serve our respective customers, as they connect their networks and storage across multiple clouds and edges — with the control and access they need to best manage their expanding data and realize its full value.”
