Boston, MA – USA | September 21, 2021 — Seagate Technology Holdings plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in data storage infrastructure solutions, has just published a technology brief covering its collaboration with axle ai, the leading independent vendor of media search software. Your media is safer on Seagate storage; axle ai’s software makes it easily findable as well. The solution brief is available for download at https://learn.seagate.com/resources/public-cloud?search=axle. In addition, axle ai is exhibiting at the annual TechCrunch Disrupt conference today and tomorrow; details at https://techcrunch.com/events/tc-disrupt-2021; its Reg. CF equity crowdfunding round on Republic.co, https://republic.co/axle-ai, remains open through September 27th.
The recent collaboration between Seagate and axle ai is centered around the Seagate® Lyve™ edge-to-cloud mass storage platform, designed to offer a coherent data storage architecture extending from on-premise removable media through industry-leading cloud storage-as-a-service (STaaS), all from a single trusted vendor. Axle ai’s software is a browser-based front end that can be used across multiple storage devices and services, making it easy for media teams to remotely search and manage their content from anywhere. Together, axle ai and Seagate are broadening access to cost effective smart media solutions for real world applications.
There is a worldwide explosion of video content. The market intelligence firm IDC has estimated that the sum of data generated globally by 2025 is set to accelerate exponentially to 175 zettabytes. A growing, double-digit percentage of this storage is used to house media files. Meanwhile, approximately 400,000 video teams worldwide are responsible for capturing, editing, and managing this content, but much of it becomes difficult to leverage soon after capture; in a report commissioned by Seagate, IDC estimates that more than two-thirds of data stored is not readily searchable or available for access after initial use.
Video files have become large and numerous, while ongoing capture is so pervasive that most content storage requires a hybrid cloud strategy. Ideally, the most immediate media is captured on solid-state drive (SSD) and hard disk drive (HDD)-based storage solutions and then transferred to a cloud infrastructure allowing remote access and global search. This is ideally suited to Seagate’s new Lyve offerings, which span a wide range of media use cases with powerful and affordable capabilities.
Seagate and axle ai recently entered into a broad-ranging solutions agreement where a full range of Seagate products and services are now offered by axle ai in conjunction with their own media indexing, tagging, and search software. These joint solutions include:
1. Seagate direct attached SSD, HDD, and RAID solutions (https://www.seagate.com/products/external-hard-drives/)
2. Seagate’s Lyve Mobile solutions (https://www.seagate.com/products/data-transport/)
3. Seagate’s Lyve Cloud STaaS (https://www.seagate.com/services/cloud/storage/)
