Seagate Lyve Cloud makes mass data storage easy for Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN

Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN is tackling its digital storage challenges head on
with Seagate Lyve Cloud <> ,
as the team announces a partnership with Seagate Technology. Seagate Lyve
Cloud is the always-on mass capacity object storage platform designed to
enable multicloud freedom at the metro edge.

In a sport generating gigabytes on gigabytes of data from sensors on the
cars and at the factory, data storage presents ongoing issues such as
increasing cloud storage costs, unpredictable total cost of ownership (TCO)
and data management complexity in the cloud. As Seagate becomes the official
Object Storage Service Partner of Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN, Seagate Lyve
Cloud will offer data privacy, no vendor lock-in, no API charges and no
egress fees, allowing the team to retain full control of their data while
lowering barriers for storing, moving and activating data at scale.

Faced with the challenge of scaling their factory data beyond an on-premise
storage appliance, Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN have chosen to deploy Seagate
Lyve Cloud and can now store, access and move their unstructured data easily
at scale without having to worry about the unpredictable costs pertaining to
data growth over the next few years.

the team’s drivers, Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu, race in the 2022
Formula One championship

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal of Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN: “The data
generated by our team has been growing on an exponential scale in the last
few years and managing, storing and accessing this information in a reliable
and secure manner has become an increasing challenge for our team. Seagate
Lyve Cloud allows us to fulfil all our needs in this regard without having
to worry about the how: Seagate Lyve Cloud gives our team the freedom to
focus our resources, time and attention on what we do best – delivering
results on track.”

Ravi Naik, Chief Information Officer and Executive Vice President of Storage
Services at Seagate Technology: “Seagate is excited to be a strong partner
of the Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN to futureproof its storage environment.
Seagate Lyve Cloud solves the cost and scalability challenges for storing
and accessing Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN’s massive unstructured factory data
sets.  After all, there is only one race the Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN needs
to focus on – the race on the track – with no limits to the amount of data
they rely on to support their team and their factory.”
