Seagate’s Lyve Cloud is an S3-compatible storage only storage as a service. It is an always-on mass capacity data storage and activation Cloud solution for businesses to better realise the value of the data in their massive unstructured datasets.

S3-compatible storage refers to storage that employs the S3 API as its “language.” Applications that speak the S3 API should be able to plug and play with S3 compatible storage.

In this case, Lyve Cloud connects to Equinix Fabric, a software-defined interconnection service that allows any business to connect between its own distributed infrastructure and to any other company's infrastructure on Platform Equinix. Equinix Fabric allows customers to take advantage of multi-cloud services without deploying additional infrastructure.

Ravi Naik, executive vice president, storage services, and chief information officer at Seagate said:

According to Seagate’s Rethink Data report, as much as 68% of data available to enterprises goes unused. By providing a reliable and cost-efficient cloud storage solution at the metro edge, closer to where their data is generated, Lyve Cloud lets enterprises store and activate their data at scale, securely and efficiently.

Lyve Cloud will be located in Equinix data centres allowing Seagate to leverage their locations and bring Lyve Cloud closer to data sources and data users at the edge, which reduces latency. Seagate says that their collaboration with Equinix enables extensive interconnect opportunities for additional cloud services and geographical expansion.

Seagate says that Lyve Cloud offers customers privacy, no lock-in, and no egress fees. Customers also retain full control of their data while lowering TCO for storing massive datasets. Lyve Cloud is built to meet the data security needs of enterprise customers with always-on encryption for data in motion and at rest.

According to the company, Lyve Cloud and Lyve Solutions are available in Singapore now. However pricing has yet to be released, and interested customers are encouraged to approach the company for more information.
