Avoiding cloud computing storage lock-in: Does Hedvig have the answer?

Santa Clara-based storage company Hedvig has launched what it believes is the first universal answer for storage issues -- the Universal Data Plane. Intended to overcome the "rigidity, economics, and lack of data portability endemic to traditional storage", it offers a single, programmable data management layer that "spans across workloads, clouds, and storage tiers", the company says.


It does this by running on commodity servers in the public cloud, and offers a virtualised abstraction layer which enables any workload to store and protect its data across any location. The company is the brainchild of its CEO Avinash Lakshman, a man with an impressive track record in developing new storage systems.
