Hedvig Incorporated Company Overview

Recommended Posts

Avinash Lakshman founded Hedvig Incorporated (H.E.D.V.I.G. = Hyperscale Elastic Distributed Virtual Intelligent Granular) in 2012. That name may ring a few bells as Lakshman co-invented Amazon Dynamo in 2004. Lakshman worked at Amazon from 2004 until 2007. That year he invented Apache Cassandra. Initially invented to power Inbox Search feature at Facebook, Apache Cassandra's ability to search huge amounts of data and terrific fault tolerance has gone on to be used by giants such as Apple and Wikipedia. It was through the creation of Cassandra that Lakshman got the idea behind Hedvig.
