Open Source

Innovating for the cloud will not happen in a vacuum. Cloud solutions brought to market must be the result of a collaborative effort among suppliers, partners and end customers. Seagate joined OpenStack and Open Compute Project to partner with industry leaders to define and promote open source standards for cloud computing. Learn More.

Data Centre Management Energy Costs

Seagate® PowerChoice™ technology

With massive data centre expansion and increasing concerns over both the financial and environmental costs of ever-increasing power use, the need for more energy-efficient storage in data centres has never been more apparent. Moreover, PowerChoice technology’s flexible, user-manageable options enable power savings without sacrificing performance, data integrity or reliability.

Data Centre Management Drive Retirement

Seagate Instant Secure Erase (ISE)

Traditional methods of retiring and repurposing drives are time consuming, costly and, despite a data centre management’s best efforts, may fail to entirely mitigate the risk of a data security breach. Seagate Instant Secure Erase dramatically reduces the time it takes to retire or repurpose a hard drive from days to mere seconds, thus lowering data centre operational costs.

Data Centre Management RAID Technology


Growth in disc drive capacities has resulted in even more time-consuming RAID recovery. It can take hours—and often days—to recover a high-capacity RAID set. Seagate RAID Rebuild technology’s partial-failure copy feature is faster and less error-prone, and lowers the TCO of deploying large RAID sets in data centre management.

Data Centre Management SED Technology

Self-Encrypting Drive Technology

Nearly all drives eventually leave the data centre and their owners’ control; Seagate estimates that 50,000 drives are retired from data centres daily. Corporate data resides on such drives, and when most leave the data centre, the data they contain is still readable. Seagate Self-Encrypting Drive technology helps data centre management reduce the risk of data breach.
