WekaIO™ (Weka), the innovation leader in high-performance, scalable file storage for data-intensive applications, today announced that the Weka File System (WekaFS™) has been selected as a finalist in the “Storage System and Application Software” category of Storage Magazine 2019 Product of the Year awards.
This is the 18th annual Storage magazine and SearchStorage Products of the Year awards. The entries were judged on the following criteria: performance, innovation, ease of integration, ease of use and manageability, functionality and value.
WekaFS, Weka’s flagship product and the world’s fastest file system, delivers the industry’s best performance at any scale. WekaFS is a shared, parallel file system that delivers the highest bandwidth, lowest latency performance to any InfiniBand- or Ethernet-enabled GPU- or CPU-based cluster. The POSIX-compliant file system leverages an innovative, highly optimized software stack that leverages modern architectures such as low-latency NVMe-oF and massively distributed metadata. Built for enterprise-grade HPC, it tightly integrates object storage for best economics at scale and supports features such as snapshots, encryption, authentication, high availability, and cloud backup. Weka fully supports legacy protocols such as NFS and SMB to provide end-user access.
“In this era of I/O intensive workloads, such as machine learning and high-velocity analytics, enterprises with high-powered infrastructure need to get the most out of their investment,” said Liran Zvibel, co-founder and chief executive officer at WekaIO. “Poor storage performance results in wasted compute cycles and delays in innovation. Storage today should deliver fast results, low latency, high throughput, and performance at any scale. WekaIO is pleased to be recognized by TechTarget for delivering such an innovative solution.”
