Seagate presents an array of new solutions to equip Enterprises for the new Data Economy

Seagate Technology plc introduced revolutionary open-source object storage software, a reference architecture powered by it, and a corresponding developer community. All three were built to manage the massive surge and sprawl of unstructured enterprise data. The announcement was part of the company’s first annual Datasphere event.

 

“We live in a data economy,” said Seagate’s CEO Dave Mosley. “The value of enterprise data is too often untapped. Businesses struggle to access their data’s full potential. Seagate tailored its offerings to match the new information-hungry reality. The cost-effective, frictionless, and reliable data management innovations that Seagate unveiled will help companies get more value out of their data.”

 

Solutions announced today include the 100% open source-based software CORTX: the collaborative open source CORTX Community; and the open, flexible reference architecture deployed as converged infrastructure Lyve Drive Rack, powered by CORTX.

 

The CORTX Software

 

CORTX is hardware-agnostic open-source object storage software that gives developers and partners access to mass capacity-optimized data storage architectures. CORTX use cases include artificial intelligence, machine learning, hybrid cloud, the edge, high-performance computing, and more. Given customers’ preference for freedom from vendor lock-in, CORTX is open source-based and developed with the community. Several early adopters began testing the software and participating in the CORTX Community ahead of the launch.

 

Scientific communities with mass-scale data storage requirements cheered CORTX’s arrival.

 

An early adopter, The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Agency (CEA), has been testing a development version of CORTX for several years. The agency concluded that it is “now proving to be very powerful and flexible object storage, which can be used very effectively to implement very large-scale data storage,” in the words of Jacques-Charles Lafoucriere, Program Manager, CEA. “CORTX can very nicely work with storage tools and many different types of storage interfaces. We have effectively used CORTX to implement a parallel file system interface (pNFS) and hierarchical storage management tools. CORTX architecture is also compatible with artificial intelligence and deep learning (AI/DL) tools such as TensorFlow.”

 

Another early adopter, the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA), a leader in fusion energy research and development, sees CORTX as a welcome and needed solution. “CORTX is novel in its very concept,” said Dr. Debasmita Samadder, Exascale Algorithms Specialist at UKAEA. “It is very exciting to try our application and explore its performance using this unique object data storage system.”

 

Early adopters of CORTX also include Toyota Motor Corporation and Fujitsu Limited, among other enterprises.

 

The CORTX Community

 

CORTX Community is a group of open source researchers and developers working together to enable mass capacity object storage for the world’s proliferating data sets.

 

While CORTX and CORTX Community are Seagate’s latest contributions to object storage, the company has long played a key role in its collaborative development. In the late 1990s, Seagate was a pioneering member of the industry consortium that created the very first object storage specification: the SNIA OSD standard. Seagate's commitment to innovation and collaboration in object storage continues in CORTX and its many architectural optimizations.

 

Both offerings drew praise from Intel and WekaIO.

 

Lyve Drive Rack

 

Lyve Drive Rack is an open, flexible converged storage infrastructure that provides users with a ready-made reference architecture with which to deploy CORTX and build their own mass capacity-optimized private storage cloud. The solution democratizes hyperscale storage architectures. It offers economical and fast deployment of object storage, enabling discovery of valuable insights through rich data labeling of massive amounts of data. The enclosure’s capacities start at 1.34PB.

 

The Datasphere event featured a demo for Lyve Drive Rack. It was furnished with Seagate’s next-gen hardware innovation, the 20TB HAMR hard drives, showing that CORTX and Lyve Drive Rack enable fast adoption of mass-capacity drives for hyperscale applications. Shipments of Lyve Drive Rack and the 20TB HAMR drives are scheduled to begin in December.

 

Public cloud hyperscale storage infrastructures rely on the cost efficiency of mass-capacity devices to reduce the cost of storage. With today’s announcements, Seagate is bringing that same capability and economic benefit to the enterprise in an open architecture mode—the open-source data management software coupled with a multi-vendor reference architecture ecosystem.

 

The Datasphere Event

 

The virtual Datasphere event also included two panel discussions centered around tapping more enterprise data and open source solutions. The panels featured industry leaders from Seagate, ServiceNow, RISC-V International, Equinix, GitHub, AT&T, and IDC. Other Seagate and industry experts also led deeper dives into the new technologies and use cases.
