Focused on creating better ways to take advantage of intrinsic capabilities of storage devices, while leveraging its system design and engineering capabilities, SEAGATE understands new technology solutions industries will bring to market must be a collaborative effort among suppliers, partners and end-customers. As a key contributor to such open innovation, it only made since for SEAGATE to become an Open Invention Network (OIN) member.

Originally an American-based company which began in 1978 as Shugart Technology and incorporated as SEAGATE Technology in 2010 in Dublin, Ireland, SEAGATE is recognized as a trailblazer in the data storage industry.
