Seagate® Lyve™ Cloud won the award Cloud Storage Innovation of the Year at the 2022 Storage Digitalization and Cloud (SDC) Awards.

Now in its 13th year, the SDC Awards are one of the most highly regarded in the IT industry and focus on recognizing and rewarding successful solutions and services that form the foundation for digital transformation. With a record number of nominations across all categories this year, the awards were voted on by the readers of the Angel Business Communications publications, including Digitalisation World, SDC Channel Insights, Datacentre Solutions, and Transportation-as-a-Service magazine.

Lyve Cloud was honored for its many recent innovations including Lyve Cloud Marketplace and Lyve Cloud Archive storage service. These advances reinforce Seagate’s commitment to solving today’s data complexity challenges and serving the mass data ecosystems with the object storage service designed for multicloud freedom.

With Lyve Cloud Marketplace—a one-stop shop for validated partner solutions—customers can easily purchase tailored Lyve Cloud solutions and enjoy an integrated procurement and billing process from a single platform.


Lyve Cloud Archive offers a unique, independent cloud storage service that delivers a breakthrough total cost of ownership (TCO) without complex data management tiering or hidden fees. With uncompromised features of Seagate’s flagship Lyve Cloud object storage service, this archive solution supports data security, mobility and durability. The archival-only cloud storage is ideal for large-scale video and image repositories, secondary data sets, backup copies, and any data that lives outside of an analytics or transaction-intensive workflow. 
Additionally, Lyve Cloud’s reach has expanded to new regions, including  Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Washington, DC, and Dallas, Texas in the United States (U.S.), as well as the United Kingdom, Germany, India, and Japan. The growing list of locations strengthen the company’s existing Lyve Cloud presence in the U.S. and Singapore for a total of 10 regions featuring 16 availability zones. 
As part of the expansion, Seagate is working to secure a Health Information Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance certification in the U.S. This will allowSeagate to extend Lyve Cloud service to the healthcare industry and medical service providers who must follow stringent data privacy and compliance requirements. 
“To better serve customers' data management challenges, we are expanding the cloud regions, increasing data accessibility at metro edges, and offering Lyve Cloud Archive with predictable and compelling cloud economics for customers’ mass data growth,” said Ravi Naik, executive vice president of storage services and CIO at Seagate. “Lyve Cloud Marketplace bolsters our offerings by making it easy to find and shop partner applications that integrate with Seagate Lyve Cloud. We are looking forward to growing the marketplace with more partners to come.”
