Tencent will regard Seagate as a key supplier of storage solutions, and Seagate will treat Tencent as a Strategic Partner and set up a special service team for Tencent. Also, within the duration of the MOU, both companies will carry out an all-round and in-depth cooperation covering product, technology, and jointly impel the development of the market.

As one of China’s leading providers of Internet value-added services, Tencent is devoted to improving the quality of human life through Internet service. With a long history of innovation and technology leadership, Tencent has become one of the top three Internet companies in China. “Tencent has been providing a wide variety of innovative services since its inception,” said Tom Bie, general manager of system department at Tencent Technology.

“The extreme volume of data produced by instant messaging, online games, financial services and cloud services is directly correlated with these applications. The joint cooperation between Seagate and Tencent is an inevitable corollary of our business development. We look forward to a dramatic development of our products, services, and market, not only within China, but also in the international arena through this all-round deep collaboration.”

The product and technology cooperation between the two companies will cover Seagate’s full line of enterprise solutions including mission critical hard disk drives (HDD), near line HDDs, cloud drives, archive drives and solid state drives (SSD).

In order to consolidate the technical leadership of both sides, Seagate and Tencent will set up joint projects during their cooperation, including jointly testing new drives, researching and developing new storage technologies and products, high capacity and high performance HDDs, drive health management and conducting hard drive application analysis, tailor-made to specific Tencent businesses.

They will also communicate on new products and technologies on a regular basis to realize targeted product development and optimization, and expand market share based on new market trends.

“With the continuous development of digitalization, data will exert a huge positive influence on human society. New data is offering enterprises more effective operational capabilities, and changing every aspect of people’s lives,” said BS Teh, senior vice president of global sales and sales operations at Seagate Technology.

“Today, we take great pleasure in setting up a strategic partner relationship with Tencent. The two parties will collaborate with each other, constantly developing and optimizing storage solutions for Tencent specific applications so as to provide users with a better data application experience. We hope that the customized service and joint research and development activities covering various storage solutions can help Tencent perfect their data services, and at the same time, promote Seagate’s delivery capabilities from technology to service.”
