By consolidating and modernizing your backup storage, you can provide a more efficient, cost-effective, and scalable solution that grows with your organization.

Hedvig’s Distributed Storage Platform supports two of the most popular backup strategies: on-premise and hybrid cloud storage. Hedvig can serve as a backup target or enterprise backup application. Our unique enterprise storage capabilities, including snapshots, clones, deduplication and compression, enable you to manage all of your primary and secondary workloads on a single platform.

 

Benefits of Our Backup Storage & Archive Solutions

  • Reduce backup target costs by 60% or more
  • Eliminate costly upgrades and application maintenance fees
  • Decrease your backup storage footprint and accelerate restore times

 

How Hedvig Works As a Backup Target

Hedvig provides backup storage using a backup-optimized virtual disk as a target. Data is easily copied and made available in multiple locations so you can rapidly restore it from another data center. This allows for unlimited scalability across data centers. In addition to using backup disks, you can also archive data from the same location, using the full benefit of the entire storage cluster.
