Seagate&s new Lyve Drive modular storage system includes a full range of individual storage solutions for enterprise, cloud and edge applications from SD card to large mobile RAID systems. It is designed for a variety of deployment scenarios from the connected home to autonomous vehicles to the connected city. At CES 2020, Seagate will also be demonstrating how its next-generation data management solutions accelerate post-production processes with a set of films.
Seagate Lyve Drive Workflow in a film production
For example, during a film production, the material recorded on the camera&s Lyve Drive memory cards can be read using Lyve Drive card readers. In a modular Lyve Drive Array, the card readers can also be combined with memory modules in a system to automatically receive backups, which can then be passed on as copies during the course of further production. The data can also be automatically uploaded in encrypted form to Lyve&s own storage solutions on the network after a successful integrity check.
Seagate Lyve Drive System
The Lyve Drive System includes the following elements:
- Lyve Drive Cards and Lyve Drive Card Reader: 1TB CFexpress cards and a portable card reader to capture data sources at the endpoint
- Lvye Drive Shuttle: An autonomous data storage and transport solution for easy data transfer from external storage devices, including DAS and NAS systems. It offers up to 16 TB of storage space - depending on the configuration with HDDs or SSDs - as well as an e-Ink touch screen display to copy data without a PC.
- Lyve Drive Mobile Array: A sealed, high-performance 6-bay array that is rugged and easy to transport. The mobile array includes six Seagate Exos hard drives with HAMR (Heat-assisted Magnetic Recording) technology, each with a capacity of 18 TB - for a total storage capacity of 108 TB.
- Lyve Drive Modular Array: A powerful 4-bay array with flexible configuration to allow organizations to adapt it to their individual workflows. The modular array has high capacity thanks to Seagate&s integrated Exos 2X14, the first hard drive with MACH.2 multi-actuator technology.
- Lyve Drive Rackmount Receiver: A high performance 4U rackmount storage system for data centers, featuring two Lyve Drive Arrays
