Self-service, API-driven storage for DevOps

On-demand infrastructure in test/dev environments is a must for achieving a fast time to market for business applications. Unfortunately, a majority of organizations report that it takes days or weeks to provision or acquire storage capacity – see Forrester study. Software-defined storage offers software development shops a key advantage, increasing the flexibility of storage provisioning using commodity infrastructure.

Hedvig offers unparalleled simplicity and flexibility for storage provisioning in test/dev environments. By providing point-and-click provisioning with granular virtual disk policy selection as well as instant cloning, Hedvig makes it easy to deploy storage for development followed by a seamless move to production.

Hedvig was designed to meet the needs of developers and DevOps engineers looking to directly provision and program storage. The Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform provides a full set of RESTful APIs that control all aspects of provisioning, configuration, maintenance, and monitoring.
