Hedvig wins again!
Shortly after being declared a TiE50 award winner, one of Network World's 10 hottest enterprise storage companies to watch, and one of CRN's 10 Coolest Storage Startups of 2015, Hedvig has racked up another award. This time we've been named to The Channel Company's 2015 CRN Emerging Vendors List.

I'm particularly proud of this award given that it not only focuses on innovation and emerging technology, but also the opportunities it creates for partners.
Hedvig has had a channel-first mentality since launching the company in March of 2015. (Avinash does a great job of ringing the proverbial bell in this post.)
What do all of these companies have in common? First and foremost, they help their customers adopt and implement emerging technology to sustain competitive advantage. That might sound cliché, but it's critical in today's environments. Organizations are always seeking new ways to engage customers, enter new markets, globalize, streamline costs, and outcompete peers. It's no surprise technology is now at the forefront of that conversation, but for many of these organizations it's impossible to stay on top of all the new architectures and solutions that can help.
That's where partners come in.
We've selected boutique and forward-thinking partners that have established the vaunted "trusted relationship" status with their customers. They introduce new technologies that meaningfully impact business outcomes.
These partners work with Hedvig to drive infrastructure simplicity and flexibility. Whether organizations are implementing next-gen architectures like Docker, Hadoop, OpenStack, or more traditional environments like server virtualization and backup, storage is quickly becoming the keystone. Without the right storage platform these initiatives simply won't succeed in production environments.
This is just the start of the journey for Hedvig and our partners. We're honored that CRN has recognized us an emerging vendor and we can't wait to tackle this market with new and existing partners alike.
