WekaIO: Making Machine Learning Compute-Bound Again

We are going to present WekaIO, the lowest latency, highest throughput file system solution that scales to 100s of PB in a single namespace supporting the most challenging deep learning projects that run today. We will present real life benchmarks comparing WekaIO performance to a local SSD file system, showing that we are the only coherent shared storage that is even faster than the current caching solutions, while allowing customers to linearly scale performance by adding more GPU servers.”

WekaIO Unveils Industry’s First Cloud-native Scalable File System

Today WekaIO, a venture backed high-performance cloud storage software company, today emerged from stealth to introduce the industry’s first cloud-native scalable file system that delivers unprecedented performance to applications, scaling to Exabytes of data in a single namespace. Headquartered in San Jose, CA, WekaIO has developed the first software platform that harnesses flash technology to create a high-performance parallel scale out file storage solution for both on-premises servers and public clouds.
Data is at the heart of every business but many industries are hurt by the performance limitations of their storage infrastructure,” said Michael Raam, president and CEO of WekaIO. “We are heralding a new era of storage, having developed a true scale-out data infrastructure that puts independent, on-demand capacity and performance control into the hands of our customers. It’s exciting to be part of a company that delivers a true revolution for the storage industry.”
