Five years after its launch, and $ 52 million raised to fund its development, Hedvig continues its momentum with Avinash Lakshman, the co-creator of the Cassandra database. The question is what is most meaningful today for customers to continue the development of the distributed storage solution and scale-out: hybrid and private clouds are now one of the avenues explored, especially with HPE.
The compatible solutions have grown considerably since our first visit. These include Cisco, HPE, Lenovo, QCT, SuperMicro and Dell for on-premises solutions and AWS Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform for cloud partners. For workloads, VMware, KVM, OpenStack and Microsoft Hyper-V are used for VMs, Mesos, Docker, CoreOS and Kubernetes for containers and finally Veeam, Commvault, Veritas and IBM Spectrum for backup.
