Elastic block storage for Microsoft Hyper-V

Hyper-V technology has gained significant traction in many virtualized computing environments with customers across a wide spectrum - from small to medium business to large enterprise companies. By building its virtualization platform directly into Windows Server, Microsoft has fostered Hyper-V adoption and made it easy for customers to create and manage a virtualized computing environment.

Hedvig is a scale-out distributed storage platform with real-time multi-site replication, providing protection of data and also delivering maximum availability in the event of server or data center outages. Hedvig’s hyperscale architecture is ideal for Hyper-V virtualization deployments, providing highly elastic and flexible storage that can be scaled independently of compute. The Hedvig software-defined solution runs completely on commodity hardware, reducing enterprise storage costs while modernizing businesses.


Hyper-V Problems Hedvig Solves

  • Costly and complex storage provisioning slows virtualization workflows.

  • Traditional storage limitations including lack of native multisite-support presents risk of excess downtime.

  • The cost of traditional VMware-focused storage solutions based on proprietary hardware/software is expensive.


Hedvig's Unique Hyper-V Value

  • Reduce costly and complex storage provisioning times that slow down virtualization workflows.
