When our CEO, Avinash, was starting this company, one of the biggest concerns he had was understanding the motivations and concerns of real world storage admins and architects. He believed that without a solid understanding of everyday challenges, Hedvig could easily fall into a trap of selling a product that sounds fantastic but doesn’t really meet the needs of the intended audience.
This week, we’re proud to report that this focus on our
core customer base has been validated again – we won the People’s Choice Stevie Award in the Cloud Backup and Storage category. We’re flattered to stand alongside such respected and valued names as Dell, Tableau, Clearslide and others.
Since exiting stealth in March of last year, we find ourselves quickly running out of storage space… in our award cabinet. We’ve earned recognition from Gartner, Best in Biz, Tech Trailblazers, Storage Magazine and Cloud Computing among others. This list of accomplishments is a testament to the talented team I have the pleasure of working with as well as to the need to challenge the status quo in the storage industry.
Winning the “People’s Choice” in our category is particularly gratifying coming after our other accolades. It shows us that the market is recognizing the value of a software-only approach to storage and in particular with the Hedvig solution, offering customers the highest level of flexibility for storage for both traditional workloads as well as newer, modern distributed applications.
A huge thanks to all those who voted for us as well as our colleagues and partners who have made our success possible! To learn more about the Hedvig solution, check out our technical whiteboard series videos. Just click below for instant access.
