Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (April 5, 2022) - Atempo, Data Protection and Data Management independent software vendor, today announced a collaboration with Seagate® Technology Holdings plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in data storage and infrastructure solutions, to provide enterprises with a combined offering that simplifies and accelerates the migration of large volumes of data with Seagate's Lyve™ edge-tocloud mass storage platform.
The combination of Miria, the Atempo Data Management platform, and Seagate's Lyve Mobile and Lyve Cloud, provides an efficient, highly scalable, and competitive solution for organizations looking to reduce storage costs and improve operational performance by migrating large volumes of files from a data center to Seagate’s Lyve Cloud.
“The combined expertise of Atempo and Seagate will result in a high added-value solution that is reliable, agile and sustainable for our clients and partners,” stated Ferhat Kaddour, Vice President, Sales and Alliances, Atempo. “This collaboration is an excellent conduit for businesses to migrate their data efficiently and securely while respecting governance restraints and managing both cost and operational constraints.”
With the exploding volume of data, the challenges for organizations are to optimize their storage and keep costs under control. CIOs (Chief Information Officers) in 2022 have a wide range of options when it comes to hosting their data at a reasonable cost. Yet moving several hundred terabytes (TB), or even petabytes (PB) of file data, remains a problem for many.
Limited bandwidth between data centers is a considerable limitation, making it difficult to relocate data within a target timeframe. Migrations are frequently imposed by the end of storage equipment maintenance or by operational and geographical constraints.
Atempo and Seagate provide answers to technical challenges that come with almost every migration project:
“Seagate’s mass data storage and migration platform, Lyve Cloud and Lyve Mobile, enables frictionless and cost-effective data flow for today’s enterprise,” said Jeff Fochtman, senior vice president of business and marketing for Seagate Technology. “Adding Atempo’s data management platform to Seagate’s Lyve solutions elegantly solves mass data management, protection, availability challenges and cost complexity, allowing the enterprises to store, mobilize, and activate data at unprecedented volume and speed.”
IN 2022, TRADITIONAL SOLUTIONS ARE FALLING SHORT OF EXPECTATIONS
The joint solution proposed by Seagate-Atempo combines the Miria platform which manages the secure and rapid transfer of large file data volumes, and Lyve Mobile from Seagate, that manages the physical transport of very high-capacity volumes.
The data migration process:
The benefits are as follows:
The Seagate - Atempo collaboration enables organizations to migrate up to several petabytes of data in a few days, whatever the distance or connectivity difficulties, while keeping control over key data and infrastructure choices.
This joint solution shines a light on the advanced technologies of two major players in the Data Management and cloud storage arenas including for markets requiring very high storage: HPC (High Performance Computing), Genomics and Biotech, Life Sciences, Industrial Modelling, Connected Vehicles, Media and Entertainment etc.
