Multicloud storage mitigates risk of public cloud lock-in

Multicloud storage strategy allows for the shifting of data across public clouds so you can avoid lock-in to a single provider, reduce cost and improve workload efficiency.

Hedvig Takes Your Storage to Hybrid and Multi-Cloud

With data growth exploding and on-premises IT costs creeping ever higher, an increasing number of organizations are taking a serious look at adopting cloud infrastructure for their business data and applications. Among other things, they are attracted to benefits like near-infinite scalability, greater agility and a pay-as-you-go model for consuming IT resources. These advantages are already driving new infrastructure spending on public and private clouds, which is growing at double-digit rates as spending on traditional, non-cloud, IT infrastructure continues to decline.


While most companies we speak with are already developing cloud-native apps in Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure, a much smaller number have actually deployed typically backend business apps in the public cloud. What’s preventing them from taking this next step? As it turns out, one of the biggest hurdles is productively deploying existing data storage in the cloud. Public clouds don’t have the compatibility to fully support the range of storage protocols, data services and use cases that companies’ key business apps tend to rely on, making it difficult and less useful to move these workloads to the cloud. Some organizations consider reengineering their applications for cloud-native storage, but this is both costly and time consuming, and in fact may not lead to the results they are looking for. Based on recent Taneja Group research, IT buyers want a simple path for lifting and transferring their app data to the cloud, where it can be supported for both primary and secondary use cases. They are also looking to run many workloads flexibly in a hybrid cloud deployment while maintaining the level of data security and governance they enjoy on premises.


In addition to these technical requirements, companies must also weigh potential business costs, such as the risk of getting locked into a single provider. Our research reveals that customers are increasingly concerned about this risk, which is exacerbated by a lack of data mobility among various on-premises and public cloud infrastructures.


Fortunately, the founding team at Hedvig understands these customer needs and set out more than five years ago to address them. The result of their initiative is the Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform (DSP), a unified programmable data fabric that allows customers to simply and securely deploy any type of workload and application data in a hybrid or multi-cloud environment. Based on software-defined technology, Hedvig DSP enables your existing workloads, whether based on block, file or object storage, to take advantage of cloud scalability and agility today, without the expense and delays of a major reengineering effort. With Hedvig, IT teams can automatically and dynamically provision storage assets using just software on standard x86 servers, whether in your own private cloud or a public cloud IaaS environment. Hedvig enables your workloads to move freely between different public and private cloud environments, avoiding lock-in and allowing you to choose the cloud best suited for each application and use case. Hedvig can support your primary storage needs, but also supports tier-2 storage so that you can backup your data on the same platform.


In this piece, we’ll learn more about what IT professionals are looking for in cloud storage solutions, based on our research findings. We’ll then focus specifically on Hedvig storage for hybrid and multi-cloud environments to help you decide whether and how their solutions can meet your primary and secondary storage needs.

Multi-cloud Primary Storage: Avoid lock-in while shifting apps to the cloud

As the result of extensive primary end-user and multi-vendor research, including responses from 700+ IT decision makers, Taneja Group has learned that an increasing number of organizations are more motivated than ever before to move their applications in the cloud. However, they prefer to easily move those applications between on-premises and multiple clouds without having to modify the underlying storage infrastructure. 

Join us as we unpack this emerging market category along with SoftNAS, one of the vendors at the forefront of this trend.

In this webinar we’ll cover:

  • How multi-cloud primary storage can span multiple cloud environments and mitigate the risk of moving to the public cloud
  • Lifting and shifting applications to a single public cloud or multiple public clouds without re-engineering the applications
  • Why the SoftNAS Cloud Data Platform enables enterprise on-premises file services to be collocated in public clouds

About your hosts:
Taneja Group’s Senior Analysts Jeff Kato and Jeff Byrne will discuss the research behind the Taneja Group’s Multi-Cloud Primary Storage market category. They will be joined by Rick Braddy, CEO of SoftNAS, who will describe how the SoftNAS Cloud Data Platform provides the best pathway to shift applications among on-premises, AWS, and Azure clouds.
