Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform
commodity servers

Storage for Any Compute, Any Scale

Simplify your infrastructure with a unified solution for block, file, and object storage with full programmability and support for any OS, hypervisor, or container.

Predictably and dynamically scale storage performance and capacity with off-the-shelf x86 and ARM servers.

  • Start with as few as three nodes and scale to 1000 or more
  • Provision Block (iSCSI), File (NFS), and Object (Swift, S3) storage
  • Support any hypervisor including vSphere, Hyper-V, KVM and XenServer
  • Support any container technology including Docker, CoreOS RKT, LXC
  • Integrate directly with a complete set of RESTful APIs
data services

Advanced Data Services

Customize your storage with a full range of enterprise storage services, fully selectable per-volume for a perfect fit with your applications.

Choose the features that deliver the performance, efficiency, resliency, and data protection you require.

  • Thin provisioning
  • Client-side flash/SSD caching
  • Zero-impact snapshots & clones
  • Disaster recovery (DR) replication
  • Inline deduplication & compression
  • Pin-to-flash & hybrid volume options
  • Storage virtualization
multi-site replication

Hybrid Multisite Replication

Protect each of your applications with a unique disaster recovery policy and deliver seamless high availability with a storage cluster that spans multiple data centers or clouds.

Deploy software on-premise and in public clouds to create an implicitly hybrid storage system.

  • Replicate up to six copies of data across sites
  • Logically manage any number of locations as a single storage system
  • Integrate public clouds like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform
  • Support active/active stretched clusters
  • Failover automatically to ensure your applications are up 24 x 7
