Vote for Hedvig as we blaze the software-defined storage (tech) trail

by Rob Whiteley on January 20, 2017

We’re honored to be named a finalist in the Storage Trailblazers award for the second year in a row. Here at Hedvig we take trailblazing pretty seriously. It’s part of our DNA. In fact, our founder — Avinash Lakshman — is a recognized trailblazer in distributed systems. He’s the co-inventor of Amazon Dynamo and later invented Apache Cassandra while at Facebook. In both cases, he built a new approach to storing and managing data for some of the largest, most successful web companies.

Your_Vote_Counts_Badge.jpgAt Hedvig, we’re applying Avinash’s experience building these hyperscale platforms to enterprises looking to blaze their own trails. Our goal? Transform traditional data centers into clouds.

And that’s where we’re asking for your help. Until Friday, Feb. 17, you can vote for Hedvig to win storage trailblazer of the year.

Please Vote!

Voting for Hedvig will help get the word out about our innovative software-defined storage solution. This award underscores our philosophy of applying a new, disruptive approach to solving storage problems in the modern data center. We believe this approach is the industry’s first storage platform that can:

  • Collapse multiple storage tiers: Set policies and run different hardware profiles in a single, consolidated software-designed storage platform.
  • Eliminate storage silos for any workload: Provide block, file and object storage for any hypervisor, container, or private cloud platform.
  • Unify data across hybrid and multi-cloud architectures: Unlock application portability and avoid cloud lock-in by replicating data among hybrid or public clouds.

Vote_Banner_Image.jpgAlongside the latest iteration of our award-winning Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform, we also owe the nomination as a finalist to our outstanding customers and partners that continue to help us in creating the best software-defined storage product possible.

We invite all our customers and partners (and fans, of course) to take a moment and vote for Hedvig to win. We thank you in advance and appreciate the opportunity to develop storage innovations that reimagine today’s data centers.
