Their Story

CyArk is on a mission to digitally preserve the world's cultural heritage.

By creating highly detailed 3D models of significant historical sites, CyArk empowers researchers, historians, educators, conservators, and the public to continue studying and learning about the history of human civilization.

Their Goal

CyArk wanted to manage its ever-growing library of human history more efficiently.

To ensure humanity retains access to the stories and details of historically significant places, CyArk must do more than capture data. Efficient management of its ever-growing stores of project data was a necessity for the organization.

Their Problem

CyArk was struggling to maintain an accessible library of cultural site data.

Every preservation project CyArk takes on generates multiple terabytes of unstructured data. The organization used to rely on its on-premises server for data storage, but a growing global team and the adoption of a fully remote work model underscored an urgent need for centralized cloud storage.

Their Solution

Lyve Cloud enables CyArk to have full control of and efficient access to its data.

CyArk chose Seagate Lyve Cloud because it provides the organization with full control of its data while enabling remote collaboration and better productivity. CyArk also leveraged Lyve Mobile—Seagate’s data transfer service—to move its enormous cache of data into Lyve Cloud without having to wait for bulk transfers over the network.

Their Success

Lyve Cloud simplifies data management for CyArk employees while increasing access for researchers.

Lyve Cloud has enabled CyArk to provide employees, heritage site managers, historians, researchers, and educators with immediate, secure, and complete access to cultural heritage site data sets. Now, the organization can digitally preserve historical sites efficiently while supporting ongoing research and education.

“With Lyve Cloud, we have full control to manage all our data—and it’s much simpler to share our files with external research and educational partners for the common good.”
