Seagate launches Lyve Cloud Analytics to help businesses get value out of their data

Following the launch of Seagate’s Lyve Cloud in Singapore in early 2022, the company today announced the launch of the Lyve Cloud Analytics platform, a cloud-based analytics solution covering storage, compute, and analytics, to help Lyve Cloud customers reach time to value with their DataOps, and MLOps (machine learning operations).

By adding analytics capability to their Lyve cloud storage, Seagate enables customers to move from Cloud-based storage into an open data lake architecture for analytics at petabyte scale.

The Lyve Cloud Analytics platform was created because Seagate itself had to equip itself with the right cloud infrastructure. Every day, Seagate's seven large-scale AI-enabled manufacturing sites around the world generated over 50TB of image and parametric data, which was added to its 15PB data lake and made available for analytics by Seagate.

Sthitie Bom, senior engineering director at Seagate Technology said:

As Seagate strives for best-in-class quality and efficiency, we have invested heavily in analytics and AI. One of the biggest improvements is in our wafer manufacturing process where we successfully removed a number of the tens of thousands of steps in the overall production process. Within a two-year period, through the analytics framework developed by the Seagate team, we increased the number of skippable sampling steps by 150% which allowed us to significantly reduce wafer cycle time. We anticipate an additional three-fold increase as our analytics framework advances within the Lyve Cloud Analytics platform over the coming years, resulting in significant capital savings.

According to The Multicloud Maturity Report by Seagate, over 80% of Singaporean organisations surveyed agree that the complexity and volume of data they produce make it hard to understand what data they can use to generate business value. Moreover, 90% of Singaporean organisations surveyed agree that their organisation is hampered by data retention costs (storage media costs, ingress and egress costs, etc.), which limits their ability to maximise value.

The company says that the Lyve Cloud Analytics platform will benefit enterprises in manufacturing and other multi-petabyte data scale industries, including semiconductor, healthcare, retail, energy, and more.

The pre-configured full-stack offering in partnership and integration with various leading analytics and computing providers presents enterprises with a smart and out-of-the-box solution to innovate and grow their business.

Customers on Lyve Cloud include Alfa Romeo F1 team ORLEN, Crowdstrike, and Zoom.
