The Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform provides a unified solution that lets you tailor a high-performance storage with low-cost commodity hardware to support any application, hypervisor, container, or cloud. It is said to provide storage for any compute at any scale for block, file and object storage with programmability and support for any OS, hypervisor or container. In addition, hybrid multi-site replication protects each application with a unique disaster recovery policy and delivers high availability with a storage cluster that spans multiple data centers or clouds. Finally, advanced data services let users customize storage with a range of enterprise services that are selectable per-volume.
“For Hadoop this is critical if you may want some features to be handled by HDFS, and other features to be handled by the storage platform,” said Avinash Lakshman, CEO and Founder, Hedvig.
