Why Workloads Matter More Than IOPS or Streaming

As hard drives and solid state drives (SSDs) get faster and faster, I think it is time we stop and look at what really matters, namely, how much work gets done, not how fast a device is. A key point of discussion among data architects is the importance of workflow over bandwidth or IOPs. This ...

The Implementation of Life Critical Data in the Transportation Sector

With the increasing availability and life-critical nature of big data, we are already in the early stages of a significant shift in our reliance on data to improve automotive safety and transportation infrastructure. As a participant in the recent Data Age 2025 panel, we discussed how, when ...

KISS: Keep It Seagate Simple

“Genius is the ability to reduce the complicated to the simple.” ― C. W. Ceran “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” ― Clare Boothe Luce Notice a theme here? There’s no arguing that data storage is hard. The complexity involved in designing an efficient system with reliability to achieve ...

Seagate and SAGE Project Innovate to Boost HPC and Big Data Community

We are seeing a dramatic increase in worldwide data volumes. Seagate recently announced and has been discussing IDC’s new Data Age 2025 report which finds that data creation will swell to a total of 163 zettabytes (ZB) by 2025, 10x more than today. We are entering what is called the Exascale ...

Advances in Life Sciences Place Intense Demands on Data Infrastructure

At Seagate, we see every day how data continues to evolve from its past role as static information stored and forgotten, into its new state as a living organism, touching every interaction of modern life. Nowhere has this impact been greater than in helping advance the life sciences, where the ...

Multi-Level Security Storage – From Concept to Reality

Across the globe, industries and consumers alike are experiencing a massive increase in the volume of data created, and it’s no different in government-related industries like defense and intelligence. However, one issue these sectors face that’s perhaps quite unique is the way their data is ...
