Putting the right workloads in the right Cloud Global storage is essential for data center operations. By using a multi-region deployment, you can make your data redundant across two different geographic places. With geo-redundancy, objects may stored in two geographical regions separated by at least one hundred miles. By default, geo-redundancy is enabled for 99.9% of newly written objects within an hour.
Lyve Cloud from Seagate
A new storage as a service platform from Seagate Technology makes it easier to store mass amounts of data on demand. Available in multiple locations in the US, the Lyve Cloud powered by modular hardware and software that streamlines data access, transport, and management. It also offers privacy and no egress fees.
Seagate’s Lyve Cloud is an edge-to-cloud mass storage platform that may designed for distributed enterprises. With S3 compatibility, it enables always-on, high-capacity data storage with ease. It also works in conjunction with Equinix and its extensive interconnect capabilities. This partnership allows enterprises to access the data they need with a single, simple interface. The Lyve Cloud offers a low TCO compared to traditional storage solutions, saving companies up to 70 percent on data storage costs.
Expand into Additional Regions
In a recent announcement, Seagate announced that its Lyve Cloud platform will expand into additional regions. It currently offers data center services in the U.S., United Kingdom, Germany, India, and Japan. The Lyve Cloud platform will support up to 16 availability zones across these regions.
Procurement and Billing Process
It will expand its Lyve Cloud Marketplace to enable customers to purchase tailored solutions from partners. The Marketplace will integrate the procurement and billing process to make it easy for customers to select the right solution for their data storage needs.
Annual Growth Rate
Seagate’s Lyve Cloud solution is relatively new, but it’s already an important player in the cloud object storage market. According to Market Research Future, this market will reach $15.3 billion by 2030 at a compound annual growth rate of 13.5%. Competitors include Google Cloud, AWS, and Dell Technologies. By 2025, Seagate expects that its Lyve products and services will generate $50 billion in revenue. This is much closer to aggressive estimates of the SDS market.
Easy to Use and Affordable
Lyve Cloud may a trusted storage-as-a-service solution that’s both easy to use and affordable for enterprises. It can use at metro edge locations, which means it’s closer to the data, and it offers per-terabyte pricing with no API extras. It also offers S3 compatibility, no egress fees, and ransomware protection along the entire data path.
Objects Stored in a Multi-Region are Geo-Redundant
Multi-regional storage is a type of geo-redundant storage that is ideal for frequently accessed data, such as data for mobile applications. Its geo-redundancy ensures maximum data availability in case of a large-scale disruption. Multi-regional storage is also ideal for highly available data, such as hot objects, which require frequent access.
In a multi-region, all Cloud Storage data may replicated to two geographical places, separated by a distance of more than one hundred miles. This provides a redundancy of 99.9% for newly written objects. In addition, data in the same bucket is duplicated across multiple data centers in the same geographic place.
Same Level of Redundancy
By using multi-regional data storage, you can maximize availability of your data and minimize latency. By storing data in more than one location, you can achieve the same level of redundancy as a standard GRS. Azure GRS provides geo-redundancy by enabling users to read data from the secondary region at any time.
