Hybrid Edge-to-Cloud Storage Solutions

Seagate® enterprise storage systems with Lyve™ Cloud hosted storage combined with the OSNEXUS QuantaStor supports unified block, file, and object storage with scale-out and scale-up architectures that serve a broad spectrum of workloads.

All bundle configurations include OSNEXUS QuantaStor with a three-year gold subscription non-locking license for the capacity of the bundle and a one-year license for 250TB of Lyve Cloud object storage. OSNEXUS QuantaStor supports tiering NAS file storage to Seagate Lyve Cloud storage at no additional license cost. Storage tiering technology enables automatic backups from QuantaStor to Seagate Lyve Cloud and tiering of files based on file age. Tiering retains a 1:1 identical copy of files in the Seagate Lyve Cloud object storage tier and is ideal for a variety of use cases like media asset management, archiving, and content management.

There are three bundles to choose from to meet your customer’s needs…


High Performance NAS/SAN Storage System Ideal for mission critical use cases including databases, virtualization, transcoding, media editing, and more, bundle 1 includes OSNEXUS QuantaStor on the highly available Seagate Exos® AP 2U24 all-flash system with dual server controllers.


High Density Hybrid Flash Plus HDD NAS/SAN Storage System Optimal for media asset management, unstructured data, backups, archive, research data, and general NAS use cases, bundle 2 includes OSNEXUS QuantaStor on the highly available Seagate Exos AP 5U84 hybrid system with dual server controllers.


Two-Node Building Block for Scale-Out and Rack-Scale Hybrid Flash and HDD Storage The third bundle provides scale-out file and object storage clusters that deliver both standard protocol access (S3, NFS, SMB) and native direct filesystem access for HPC and other highperformance use cases. A minimum of four nodes are required per scale-out cluster, with six or more nodes recommended. Each two-node building block bundle includes a Seagate Exos AP 2U24 high density 24-bay storage array with integrated dual AMD servers and two Seagate Exos CORVAULT™ data protected HDD direct attached arrays (each with 1.91PB raw capacity).

The Seagate and OSNEXUS bundles offer both companies’ best pricing on systems, software, and services. Seagate systems pricing is offered at the Diamond Tier level for all resellers, regardless of their Seagate partner tier status. An approved deal registration is required through Exertis.

Seagate and OSNEXUS

OSNEXUS QuantaStor has validated Seagate Lyve™ Cloud and Seagate Systems, including Storage Servers (Exos® AP 5U84, Exos AP 2U12, Exos AP 2U24), Expansion Systems (Exos E 4U106, Exos E 5U84, Exos E 2U12, Exos E 2U24) and Exos CORVAULT™, which is a high-performance, self-healing block storage system. QuantaStor scale-out configurations can be deployed with Exos CORVAULT and the Exos AP 2U24, featuring two-layer erasure coding. Exos CORVAULT built-in, system-level Autonomic Distributed Allocation Protection Technology (ADAPT) erasure coding and QuantaStor second-layer, cluster-based erasure coding increases data durability up to 149’s. This configuration also lowers the solution TCO by reducing server resources up to 50%.
