MeetTheCEO: Hedvig’s Avinash Lakshman Brings Distributed Systems Approach to Storage

A key designer of the infrastructures of Amazon and Facebook, Hedvig’s CEO, Avinash Lakshman brings a distributed systems approach to storage. Hedvig is a storage software company that delivers a highly distributed platform which is designed to run on off the shelf X86 servers. Through the platform they expose a single abstraction that they call a virtual disk. They allow compute instances to consume that virtual disk in a truly protocol agnostic fashion, meaning that Hedvig can provide that compute instance block, file or object storage. Join us for this CEO podcast to learn about Lakshman’s background, how he has applied that to Hedvig and what he predicts as the future of storage.
