When you change jobs and join a new team, you may ask your peers questions like, “what is your favorite thing about the culture here?” or “What do you think makes our product stand out?” By month 2, you begin to develop your own answers to those questions.
Of course, it’s much easier to learn a technical topic like software-defined storage when you have an influx of recognition and awards from industry experts. It speaks oodles to Hedvig’s accomplishments and how the market is reacting. Not to mention, it makes backyard BBQ explanations of Hedvig a bit easier. “Oh, we’re the award winning new storage product."
In less than a year since launching from stealth, Hedvig has already garnered numerous awards. The most recent feather in our cap was being awarded Silver in the Storage System Software category by Storage Magazine. This is a huge accomplishment considering the competition—the Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform was among 146 other entrants, including veteran enterprise storage players and other emerging startups. From that group, Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.com editors whittled it down to 70 finalists before selecting only three winners (bronze, silver and gold) from each category.
Within the Storage System Software category, the Hedvig product was a standout. Out of 13 finalists, Hedvig received the top score in three out of the six judging criteria: functionality, innovation and ease of use. Our product ranked second in value and ease of integration. One judge even deemed Hedvig the "best new competitor.”
In addition to this win, last week Hedvig was named a Cloud Computing Product of the Year and a runner-up in the Tech Trailblazer Awards. We’re honored that panels of industry experts around the world are recognizing the Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform. There’s little doubt that these awards have set the bar high for us to continue delivering on our promise of providing modern storage for modern businesses. We’re more than up for the challenge. With a growing partner ecosystem and an expanding base of fantastic customers, we’re looking forward to even greater things ahead.
