Mobile storage problematic and how Seagate can help

In a Production environment where media files have to move from OB trucks to Studio fixed facilities or Post-Production, Mobile storage has always played an important role. In the history of XFile, removable disk canisters have been used a lot. But this model forces our customers to invest a lot of money in removable disks that can stay unused on a shelf for months. In some cases, the storage capacity also reached its limits.

The launch of Seagate Lyve Mobile represents a true shift in the way mobile storages are used. Seagate Lyve Mobile is a ‘Storage As A Service’ (SAAS) solution where a customer subscribes to storage capacity, without having to invest in expensive equipment. Seagate will ship all the required components to reach that capacity when it is required. Once the event or the production is finished, the customer will ship the components back to Seagate.

Seagate Lyve Mobile Array, for instance, is a high-performance storage array, delivering a fast, reliable, and secure way of transporting content and metadata from a LiveCeption environment to post-production or archive. It helps the customers to get access to storage in a service-model and guarantees the performance in comparison to regular storage systems available in the market.

Seagate Lyve Shuttle and Lyve Mobile Array have been tested with different XFile3® versions to ensure compatibility and that performance is at the level each XFile platform can reach.
