Seagate Levels Up Data Creation At CES With Storage Solutions To Fit Any Digital Life

New products empower consumers and the changing ways they interact with data

LAS VEGAS, NVCES 2019 - Sea­gate Tech­no­lo­gy plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world lea­der in data solu­ti­ons, today announ­ced an exci­ting exten­si­on of its port­fo­lio with several new models, inclu­ding new solid sta­te dri­ve offe­rings at CES® 2019. From gung-ho gamers to Insta­gram gurus, pho­to-collec­ting par­ents, or visio­na­ry crea­ti­ves, Sea­gate offers the data sto­rage solu­ti­ons that empower users to live their best digi­tal lives in today’s fast-chan­ging data-hea­vy land­s­cape.

Today, con­su­mers have more ways than ever to con­su­me con­tent, dri­ving the need to crea­te, dis­tri­bu­te and mana­ge data effi­ci­ent­ly. Accord­ing to a recent IDC white­pa­per spon­so­red by Sea­gate, five bil­li­on con­su­mers are cur­r­ent­ly inter­ac­ting with data every sin­gle day. By 2025, that num­ber will jump to six bil­li­on, or 75 per­cent of the world’s popu­la­ti­on. Each of tho­se six bil­li­on peop­le will have at least one data inter­ac­tion every 18 seconds, bum­ping the amount of data crea­ted world­wi­de to 175 zetta­bytes by 2025. Con­su­mers increa­singly need reli­able ways to collect, pro­tect, mana­ge and access a good por­ti­on of that data, and Seagate’s latest pro­duc­ts – inclu­ding the cut­ting-edge LaCie® Mobi­le Dri­ve, LaCie Mobi­le SSD, Sea­gate Back­up Plus HDDs, Fire­Cu­da® 510 and Bar­ra­Cu­da® 510 inter­nal SSDs, and Iron­Wolf® 110 NAS SSD – are desi­gned to fit a varie­ty of data sto­rage needs and digi­tal life­styles.

Today’s digi­tal world impac­ts busi­nes­ses and con­su­mers glo­bal­ly. Com­pa­nies are increa­sing digi­tiza­ti­on and con­su­mers are embra­cing per­so­na­li­zed, real-time data inter­ac­tions. With the­se chan­ges come hig­her expec­ta­ti­ons for mana­ging data,” said Jeff Fochtman, vice pre­si­dent of mar­ke­ting for Sea­gate. “With over 40 years’ expe­ri­ence in data manage­ment, Sea­gate is con­ti­nuous­ly inno­vat­ing to pre­pa­re custo­mers for this new era of data resi­li­en­ce. Our new lin­eup of data sto­rage solu­ti­ons empower con­su­mers to effi­ci­ent­ly mana­ge their video, pho­tos, and docu­ments, at home, in the office, or on-the-go.”
