Today, many companies are struggling to keep their computer infrastructure fully utilized - a pain felt most acutely by the large GPU farms being deployed for Machine Learning (ML) where large amounts of data must be shared across application servers. At scale, the compute environments become IO-bound, starving applications and wasting expensive GPU or CPU resources and resulting in long application run times. Due to the high costs and inefficiencies associated with managing these workloads on legacy storage systems, organisations are choosing to adopt WekaIO's Matrix high-performance, massively parallel, shared file system.
