SAN MATEO, Calif. — The data environment platform Hammerspace and data storage company Seagate Technology are working on a tech integration.
Hammerspace will bring automated data orchestration and unified data access across Seagate’s Lyve Cloud service for object storage and Exos CORVAULT block storage device, according to the companies last month.
The collaboration is intended to help customers combine Seagate’s public cloud storage-as-a-service platform with the ability to unify their edge, distributed data center, and cloud data into a consolidated resource in a global data environment from Hammerspace.
Lyve Cloud is a storage-only cloud designed to help customers manage the flow of global data in multicloud environments. Users can store, access, and move datasets, while retaining full control of their data.
Hammerspace is designed to unify decentralized users, applications, and data. Users can access data for storage, management, and the utilization of services across the multi-site hybrid cloud, from Lyve Cloud to the data center and edge.
Companies are “grappling with capturing, monetizing, and retaining ever-growing mass datasets,” said Jeff Fochtman, SVP of business and marketing, Seagate.
Through the collaboration, customers can build a data environment with Hammerspace “without compromise based on economic considerations of data movement,” as Lyve Cloud doesn’t charge for ingress or egress of data, Fochtman said.
With Hammerspace “orchestrating data to any location,” users can gain “local access to data regardless of where it is located,” said Tony Asaro, SVP of strategy and business development, Hammerspace.
