Seagate Gets Into Cloud Hardware Solutions Business

After a series of vendor acquisitions, the company says it will build cloud solutions for OEMs.

Seagate announced a new Cloud Systems and Solutions division that will build solutions for original equipment manufacturers.

This summer Seagate picked up assets of LSI's Accelerated Solutions division and Flash components division from Avago. Last year it acquired EVault and hard drive test equipment maker Xyratex.

With a reported 2 million drives and 17,000 petabytes sold, Seagate says its open Intelligent Information Infrastructure program caters to OEMs and offers hard drives, SSDs and hybrid data enclosures and embedded server modules.

For cloud services Seagate and its partners provide public disaster recovery and backup cloud solutions. Seagate says its EVault Enterprise Backup and Recovery Appliance now accommodates up to 100TB of usable capacity.

Seagate also unveiled ClusterStor 9000, a fully integrated Lustre-based scale-out solution designed for HPC and Big Data workloads.

The system received U.S. government certification for meeting Intelligence Community Directive requirements.

The company said the Hamburg, Germany, climate center DKRZ has selected the Seagate ClusterStor 9000 to deliver 45 PB of Lustre-based scale-out storage to support climate simulation and modeling.
