Enabling partners and customers to benefit from high-performance computing systems, build private and public clouds with an Intelligent Information Infrastructure system

NEW YORK, NY – September 10, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX) today announced it has further strengthened its position as a trusted storage solutions leader by delivering cloud systems and solutions for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), “do-it-yourself (DIY)” and other organizations. Seagate is building on its position as a steward of digital information, and its acquisitions of Xyratex and EVault, to deliver an Intelligent Information Infrastructure system to help organizations manage the massive growth in digital data and deliver on next generation workloads.

“Industry research firm IDC estimates that the overall volume of digital bits created, replicated, and consumed across the United States alone will hit 44 zettabytes by 2020[1]. That represents a doubling of data volume every two years,” said Jamie Lerner, President of Cloud Systems and Solutions at Seagate.  “Organizations are looking for cost-effective ways to harness data and create actionable information. Seagate is bringing an open approach to the Intelligent Information Infrastructure program. We are applying our experience working with cloud service providers worldwide to create systems and solutions that manage next generation workloads with the scale, performance and economy aligned to business needs.”

Much of the data growth is in unstructured data. Industry analyst firm IDC “estimates that in 2015, as far as enterprise disk storage systems are concerned, unstructured data will surpass structured data in terms of both capacity shipped and customer revenue.”[2] Industry analyst firm Gartner says “the explosion in unstructured data, which is growing at 40% to 60% on a yearly basis in most enterprises, has catapulted object storage as an inexpensive, scalable, self-healing, multitenant platform for storing petabytes of data.”[3]

Seagate Cloud Systems and Solutions has a growing number of offerings in four areas:

  • Integrated High-Performance Computing solutions
    Engineered for high-performance computing, Seagate’s HPC solutions combine ultra dense data enclosures,  operating system, hardware controllers, and the Lustre® file system in a consolidated, scale-out high-performance-computing platform. The award-winning Seagate HPC solution removes the complexities associated with deploying and maintaining traditional high-performance systems yielding faster time to results, ease of use and management, and world-class performance to meet mission-critical needs.
  • Scalable, modular components and engineered solutions
    Seagate provides Intelligent Information Infrastructure solutions to meet the needs of “do-it-yourself (DIY)” organizations that want to select components and build custom systems to fully integrate solutions for object storage; these software independent systems can meet the capacity and performance demands of next generation workloads, including:

    • Engineered solutions for object storage
    • Reference architectures for open source and software defined storage
    • Private cloud appliances for backup and recovery
    • Modular, scalable components for DIY
  • Custom, modularized systems for OEMs
    Seagate has provided over 2 million enclosures and 17,000 petabytes of storage for our OEM customers. Seagate’s open Intelligent Information Infrastructure program provides private label systems and components for vendors that want to deliver the highest quality information infrastructure products to their customers.
