The data storage leader said Lyve Cloud from Seagate Technology enables always-on mass capacity data storage and activation.

Lyve Cloud is currently offered at multiple locations in the US and will arrive in other countries in the future.

Seagate said it is collaborating with Equinix, the world’s digital infrastructure company, to make Lyve Cloud accessible to more customers.

“Lyve Cloud is an extension of Seagate’s leadership in mass data solutions, combining our mass capacity HDD innovation with deep storage industry knowledge to help customers activate more of their valuable data,” said Ravi Naik, executive vice president, storage services, and chief information officer at Seagate.

Lyve Cloud offers privacy, no lock-in, and no egress fees, allowing customers to retain full control of their data while lowering TCO for storing massive datasets.

Leveraging Lyve Cloud and Platform Equinix, customers have an optimized, cost-effective object storage option to make their cloud truly composable, said Eric Schwartz, chief strategy officer of Equinix.
