The platform is available in 48- and 96-terabyte configurations. They are aimed at enterprises deploying private, hybrid and multi-data center clouds. Hedvig also said the combination supports private cloud storage for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V and other hypervisors. The storage platform also supports hybrid cloud storage services running on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. 

The Hedvig software-defined storage technology merges disparate tiers of storage and unifies block, file and object interfaces in a single API-driven platform. The company said its software-defined approach is geared toward data-intensive cloud workloads.
