Hedvig’s Evolution

When he first saw Hedvig in 2016, Dan Frith already thought they had a good story around scalable, software-defined storage. After seeing them again at Storage Field Day this month, he found increased maturity around their interface and data protection features. Instead of having to drop into the CLI, all tasks during the presentation were easily handled in their GUI. He thinks the improvements shown demonstrate a company that listens to the needs of their customers.


A look at the Hedvig distributed Hybrid Cloud storage solution

Chan Ekanayake had been familiar with Hedvig for some time, and knew them to be a flexible, truly distributed software-defined storage company. After getting some updates from the company at Storage Field Day, his takeaway: They are a good hybrid SDS solution that can cater for a mixed workload across the private data center as well as public cloud platforms.


Data Mobility – Global/Scale-out Data Platforms

Chris Evans published another post in his ongoing series about data mobility in hybrid cloud. In this post, he looks at Global NAS and other distributed storage solutions, and includes a consideration of how to deal with data consistency. Solutions from NooBaa, Qumulo, Weka, Elastifile, Hedvig and Datera are included in this overview.


My dilemma of stateful storage marriage

Chin-Fah Heoh has been thinking about stateful data in stateful storage containers and how they would interact with distributed applications containers and functions-as-a-service. This led to a consideration of what a distributed data systems would look like, wherein the idea of a “data center” seems like an oxymoron. He’s seen some past Storage Field Day companies offer pieces on how to get to a distributed data system. Chin-Fah will be at Storage Field Day next month, and looks forward to seeing how Hedvig and WekaIO will offer more pieces to this puzzle.
