We had the chance to sit down and have a chat with the Hedvig EMEA guys last week. They gave us a very good presentation on what Hedvig can bring and what they are working on. As we recently got to know Hedvig and their software defined storage solution, we were pretty amazed with their view on SDS and their long list of supported platforms and enterprise storage features and services. Although it is pretty hard to explain all the goods Hedvig brings in one post, we will give it a try! 🙂
Not too long ago, Hedvig Inc came out of stealth after a period of developing since June of 2012. They are opting for a slightly different approach with the general availability (GA) status compared to other SDS start-ups. When their software will be GA with version 1.0, it will be a fully developed, full feature solution which is already running production at several enterprise early adopter customers! It is likely version 1.0 is released next week (week 23)!!
Okay, so let us focus on what makes Hedvig unique. They introduce themselves using the quote below.
Put simply: Hedvig gets better and smarter as it scales. Hedvig defies conventional wisdom, transforming commodity hardware into the most advanced storage solution available today. Hedvig accelerates data to value by collapsing disparate storage systems into a single platform, creating a virtualized storage pool that provisions storage with a few clicks, scales to petabytes, and runs seamlessly in both private and public clouds.
