Use Cases

Together, Hedvig and Ethos enable a more effective storage solution for traditional applications while also delivering an optimal platform for new, modern applications.

Traditional Workloads

Server Virtualisation

Server Virtualisation

Hedvig software supports the widest breadth of hypervisors, operating systems, containers, and clouds. Hedvig and EthoScale provide a single, scale-out storage platform that supports a consistent, high-performance workflow for provisioning storage in large, highly virtualised environments.

Backup

Backup

Hedvig scales dynamically with EthoScale servers to provide an efficient platform for backup, archiving, business continuity, and disaster recovery. Built-in hybrid cloud support and storage efficiency features streamline on and off-site data protection with the ideal economics and flexibility for long-term secondary data retention.

VDI

VDI

Hedvig delivers fine-grained control of storage services to meet the unique demands of hosted virtual desktops. The software takes advantage of the latest high-performance flash storage options and the cost economics of EthoScale to ensure the success of your VDI project.

New Workloads

Production Clouds

Production Clouds

Hedvig’s cloud-like storage provisioning delivers simplicity for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). It plugs seamlessly into cloud orchestration and service catalog tools like OpenStack, and supports container technologies like Docker deployed with microservices environments.

Test/Dev Clouds

Test/Dev Clouds

Hedvig offers unparalleled simplicity and flexibility for storage provisioning in test/dev environments. By providing point-and-click provisioning with granular virtual disk policy selection as well as instant cloning, Hedvig makes it easy to deploy storage for development followed by a seamless move to production.

Big Data

Big Data

Hedvig and EthoScale provide the ideal storage platform for big data. The flexible storage architecture is a perfect match for the elastic nature of Hadoop and NoSQL. Hedvig’s tunable replication, built-in compression and deduplication enable organizations to virtualize big data applications and build a highly efficient “data lake” atop a single, unified storage solution.
