Hedvig has proven to be a good channel and technology partner, said Gautam Shah, president of Colfax International, a Sunnyvale, Calif.-based solution provider and Hedvig channel partner.
"We like how Hedvig allows customers to use commodity servers--anybody's machines--to deploy scale-out storage," Shah told CRN. "This means more business for us."
The new round of funding shows that Hedvig is maturing as a company, and should be here for the long-term, Shah said.
"As it matures from being a startup, and as its customers, talent, and funding grows, Hedvig becomes more effective as a partner to the channel," he said. "This helps the channel feel more comfortable working with Hedvig in return."
