Hedvig Raises $21.5M for Software-Defined Storage

Hedvig, a start-up based in Santa Clara, California, raised $21.5 million in Series C funding for its software-defined storage solutions.

Hedvig provides software-defined storage for enterprises building private, hybrid, or multi-cloud environments. The Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform consolidates block, file, and object into a single, API-driven platform that keeps pace with ever-growing data needs. Its Universal Data Plane technology forms a distributed, scale-out cluster that transforms commodity servers or cloud computing into a flexible foundation for bare metal, hypervisor, and container infrastructure.

The funding included new investments from Singapore-based EDBI and Hewlett Packard Pathfinder, part of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). The round also included expanded investments from Atlantic Bridge Ventures, including its Oman Technology Fund, and contributions from existing investors True Ventures and Vertex Ventures. The company has now raised a total of $52 million to date.

“All sectors of enterprise IT are being hit by new demands from the massive wave of emerging digital businesses. It’s a wake-up call for the storage industry and a signal that a flexible, simple software-defined storage solution is needed for primary and secondary storage in the era of cloud,” said Avinash Lakshman, founder and CEO of Hedvig.

Hedvig Raises $18 Million for Distributed, Software-Defined Storage

Hedvig, a start-up based in Santa Clara, California, announced $18 million in Series B funding for its software-defined storage solution designed to bring "the power of Amazon and Facebook-like infrastructure to any enterprise data center.".

Hedvig has developed a Distributed Storage Platform combines cloud and commodity infrastructure.  The system creates a virtualized pool that provisions storage with a few clicks, scales to petabytes and runs seamlessly in both private and public clouds. The company cited customers such as Intuit, Dovilo, Van Dijk and Paul Hastings LLP.

“We’ve identified the potential in a broken and fragmented storage market, and are not only looking to bring software-defined storage mainstream, but fundamentally change how companies store and manage data,” said Avinash Lakshman, founder and CEO of Hedvig. “Riding the wave of momentum from our recent company launch, this new investment round further validates our technology and approach, and will fuel our unwavering commitment to be the leading force of innovation in software-defined storage.”

The funding was led by Vertex Ventures with participation from existing investors True Ventures and Atlantic Bridge. Vertex Ventures General Partner In Sik Rhee also joined Hedvig’s Board of Directors. Hedvig has raised approximately $30.5 million to date.
