Seagate Technology Holdings plc helped international non-profit organization CyArk overcome a major data management challenge with the company‘s Lyve Cloud, a simple and trusted storage-as-a-service platform that offers control of customers’ data without vendor lock-in or egress fees.
CyArk’s team also leveraged the firm‘s Lyve Mobile data transfer services to migrate their massive datasets from multiple on-prem storage devices and server to Lyve Cloud.
CyArk is dedicated to digitally recording, archiving, and sharing a world’s most significant cultural heritage sites with researchers, historians, and educators. Each project generates multiple terabytes of unstructured data. As a result of the pandemic, it went to a fully remote workforce, severely reducing access to their dedicated on-prem server that houses massive project datasets. They needed a solution that could provide their employees and stakeholders with always-on, secure, and timely access to their data regardless of location.

“Digital transformation is critical for BC through the pandemic,” said Jeff Fochtman, SVP, business and marketing, Seagate. “Lyve edge-to-cloud mass storage solution helps organizations like CyAr to overcome the common storage challeges related to cost and complexity. As a huge fan of CyArk’s mission to digitally preserve the world’s most significant heritage sites, I am excited and proud to support their passionate team with Seagate’s products, services, and expertise.”
