Elastic, multi-site NFS storage for VMware

Virtualization transforms enterprise IT, increasing productivity, lowering costs, and improving business continuity. With VMware vSphere, enterprises dynamically provision and manage applications, transforming data centers from static, inflexible infrastructures to dynamic and agile business enablers. The challenge? Traditional storage infrastructure is a mis-match with the unique requirements that a dynamic virtual server environment brings.

The Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform provides VM-aware storage that simplifies data management for virtualization administrators. Hedvig cost-effectively supports the needs of organizations as their environment grows and business requirements change and provides the flexibility to meet the needs of any application.
