Seagate is stepping up its datacenter game with the rollout of the Cloud Systems and Solutions group, which will offer enterprise-grade, scalable cloud service architecture.

The Cupertino, Calif.-based company says the new division makes Seagate the first company to deliver hard drives, solid-state hybrid drives, SSDs, external storage solutions, recovery services, cloud services and fully integrated cloud systems.

Seagate's CSS product update will include offerings for integrated high performance computing, scalable, modular components and solutions, custom systems for OEMs and cloud backup/restore, disaster recovery and rapid archive storage solutions. 

The company also released a new ClusterStor option. With the 9000 iteration, Seagate said HPC and big data customers will be able to reliably plan, deploy and sustain maximum app performance. The Seagate EVault EBA was also tweaked to accommodate up to 100 terabytes of usable capacity. 

"Organizations are looking for cost-effective ways to harness data and create actionable information," Jamie Lerner, president of Cloud Systems and Solutions at Seagate, said in a statement. "Seagate is bringing an open approach to the Intelligent Information Infrastructure program. We are applying our experience working with cloud service providers worldwide to create systems and solutions that manage next generation workloads with the scale, performance and economy aligned to business needs."
