How do I transition to a hybrid world taking advantage of public cloud? The HPE Complete Hedvig Software provides a software-defined storage fabric solution that enables the IT transformation for primary and secondary data - one platform that is workload agnostic to support virtualization, containers, and backup. It stores and protects the data with encryption at rest and in flight, and multisite replication across private and public clouds. The Hedvig platform lets you tailor a scale-out, elastic storage solution on HPE server products and public cloud to support emerging applications, hypervisors, or container deployments. Customers experience improved speed of delivery, automation, technology flexibility, and simplified deployment and operations while improving TCO. It is ideal for block, file, or object storage when the customer is aiming to simplify their infrastructure stack to support VMware®, microservices (Docker, Mesosphere, Kubernetes, OpenShift) and backup above 50 TB and up.

Multisite awareness: everything from racks in the same data center to multiple data centers to public clouds.

Clones can have replication volumes that differ from the base volume delivering increased flexibility.

Enables migration to and from the cloud, as well as cloud arbitrage.

Software-defined Scale-out Backup Repository, Compatible with any Backup Application

Hedvig's backup solution provides an option of deploying a hyperconverged or hyperscale backup solution. This enables us to compete with Rubrik and Cohesity.

Hedvig’s scale-out backup target can work with any backup application, such as Veeam, NetBackup, and Commvault. Hedvig is already NetBackup and Veeam certified.

Hedvig’s advanced global deduplication and compression algorithms provide significant storage reduction.

Enables hybrid cloud and multicloud backup deployments.
