IDC MarketScape names WekaIO as a major player in file-based storage


7 Jan 2020 Campbell - The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide File-Based Storage 2019 Vendor Assessment has recognized WekaIO as a major player in this sector. According to the IDC MarketScape, IDC believes that file-based storage (FBS) will continue to evolve to address the needs of traditional and next-generation workloads.

The IDC MarketScape noted: "WekaFS was developed from the ground up to utilize the performance of NVMe flash technology to deliver the optimum performance and minimum latency for demanding and unpredictable AI workloads. WekaIO's customers claim satisfaction and that the offering holds to performance promises made by the vendor."

The Weka File System, WekaFS, is the world's fastest file system and Weka's flagship product. Weka helps solve today and tomorrow's biggest computing problems. Weka FBS is designed to provide extreme performance at any scale. In its report IDC highlighted Weka as a solution for customers facing legacy storage bottlenecks that stall progress in data and compute intensive environments. Weka can help solve any high-performance problem and is ideal for all extreme technical compute and I/O-intensive workloads, including machine learning, GPU acceleration, genomics, life sciences, financial analytics, log management, and technical computing.

"Our solution has been developed with the future in mind. We recognize the value of equipping organisations with the tools they need to glean the maximum value from their emerging data applications in AI and data analytics, while continuing to support their legacy environment", stated Barbara Murphy, vice president of marketing at WekaIO. "We have built the most resilient enterprise-grade parallel file system that delivers the highest-bandwidth, lowest-latency performance to any application as proven with our #1 position on the IO-500. Combined with our integrated support for enterprise features and legacy protocols such as NFS and SMB, Weka is the most future-proof solution on the market, and with our extensive server vendor relationships, it is as easy to consume as any NAS appliance."

"A new digitized world demands an infrastructure that is extremely scalable and flexible in terms of delivery models and support of new high-performant uses cases such as analytics and content delivery", stated Amita Potnis, research manager on IDC's Storage team. "FBS platforms hold the promise and the potential to support end-users along this path of digitization."
