No More Software License Fees

Licensing often exceeds the acquisition cost of actual storage capacity.

We’re revolutionizing enterprise storage with Lyve Drive Rack, a tightly integrated, converged infrastructure solution that bundles up to 1.7PB with CORTX object storage—giving you the storage capacity you need, without the expensive storage software license fees.

  • Bundles Seagate storage with CORTX 100% open source software, servers, and networking  
  • Enterprise-hardened, fully tested, and supported by Seagate
  • Up to 1.7PB of raw capacity in a single converged infrastructure solution

Exabyte Scalability

Hyperscale resilience, availability, and performance.

  • No global locks for scalable performance in consistent object, key value, file and clusters
  • Distributed metadata management: enabling maximum scalability and concurrency
  • Scalable data experience—add structure to unstructured data and enable easy, fast access, search, and analysis
  • Scalable health monitoring tracks performance metrics and identifies bottlenecks

Open at Last

Solve tough data challenges with easy access to object storage.

100% open source reduces vendor lock-in, future-proofing data access and flexibility for your unique and dynamic requirements.

  • Community-built and maintained on GitHub 
  • Cloud interoperability streamlines data movement between clouds and includes S3 compatibility for unstructured data
  • Open architecture allows core functionality to be added modularly, while streamlining code and preventing bloat
  • Vendor-agnostic management interface supports compatibility with SSPL and Redfish/Swordfish
