Atempo deploys Seagate’s Live Mobile for bulk data migration to the cloud and data centers. The target group is companies that want to reduce their storage costs.
Atempo partners with Seagate Technology Holdings plc to provide enterprises with a combined offering that simplifies and accelerates large data migrations with Seagate’s Live Mobile.
Miria, Atempo’s data management platform, and Seagate’s Live Mobile provide an efficient, highly scalable, and competitive solution for organizations looking to reduce storage costs and improve operational performance by moving large amounts of files into low-cost data centers migrate to the cloud.
“The combined expertise of Atempo and Seagate will result in a high-value solution that is reliable, flexible, and sustainable for our customers and partners,” said Ferhat Kaddour, vice president of sales and alliances at Atempo. “This collaboration is an excellent way for companies to efficiently and securely migrate their data while respecting governance mandates and addressing cost and operational constraints.”
With data exploding, organizations are challenged to optimize storage and control costs. CIOs (Chief Information Officers) have a wide range of options in 2022 for hosting their data at a reasonable price. But transferring hundreds of terabytes or even petabytes of file data remains a problem for many. Limited bandwidth between data centers presents a significant constraint that makes it challenging to move data within a given time frame. Migrations are often forced by the end of storage device maintenance or by operational and geographic constraints.
Atempo and Seagate answer the technical challenges encountered in almost every migration project.
Preserve file integrity and associated access rights to files, folders, and shares.
Less impact on users and less disruption to critical applications. Storage data stays in production with a progressive migration solution.
Full compliance with budget constraints and no vendor lock-in. There are no limits to the number of data companies can store and activate.
Streamlined and efficient IT architectures resulting from data storage consolidation improve network transmissions and cloud uptake. The end of data silos scattered across multiple clouds and edge locations will increase opportunities for innovation.
“Seagate’s data storage and migration platform enable today’s business to seamlessly and cost-effectively flow data,” said Jeff Fochtman, senior vice president of business and marketing at Seagate Technology. “The addition of Atempo’s data management platform to Seagate’s Live Mobile elegantly solves the challenges of managing, protecting, and availability of big data and cost complexities and enables organizations to move data at an unprecedented scale and pace save, mobilize and activate.”
In 2022, traditional solutions will fall short of expectations
Seagate and Atempo’s joint solution combines the Miria platform, which manages the secure and fast transfer of large amounts of data, with Seagate’s Live Mobile, which contains the physical transport of very high-capacity disks.
The process of data migration:
In the primary data center, incremental migration of batches of files or segments of the file tree structure to be moved from source storage to Live Mobile temporary storage is performed by Miria. Miria moves the data from Live Mobile storage to the final destination location.
The advantages are as follows:
Moving data from any file storage to the Live Mobile is done seamlessly and at high speed, reducing the impact on production and ensuring the integrity of the data being transferred to the Live Mobile and from the Live Mobile to the target data center or cloud.
Scalable, modular, and vendor-agnostic, Live Mobile provides an integrated solution that eliminates network dependencies, allowing organizations to move large amounts of data quickly, securely, and efficiently.
Seagate and Atempo’s collaboration enables organizations to migrate up to several petabytes of data in days, regardless of distance or connectivity difficulties, while maintaining control of critical data and infrastructure decisions.
This joint solution is suitable for markets with very high storage requirements: HPC (High-Performance Computing), Genomics & Biotechnology, Life Sciences, Industrial Modeling, Connected Cars, Media & Entertainment, etc.
