Weka.IO is Named Cool Vendor by Gartner

Weka.IO, the leader in high performance, scalable file storage for data intensive applications, has been named a Cool Vendor by Gartner, Inc., the world's leading research and advisory company, in the Gartner Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies, 2018 report. We feel that this is a highly prized distinction that recognizes companies disrupting the status quo with fresh ideas that enable digital transformation.

"In our view, it's been a great year for WekaIO and this recognition from Gartner is further confirmation that our exceptional software-defined storage technology is well positioned to support deep learning, analytics, and high-performance computing (HPC) workloads," said Liran Zvibel, CEO and Co-founder of WekaIO. "We believe that Gartner reports like the Cool Vendor kind can assist CIOs in filtering out hype and targeting new solutions that can catapult the digital transformation continuum. To us, it's an honor to be included in this year's report and to be recognized as one of the companies disrupting the status quo with fresh ideas that enable digital transformation."

WekaIO's flagship product, Matrix, is the fastest software-based, shared storage solution in the industry, on any server platform, on-premises or in the cloud. Performance is substantiated on SPEC SFS benchmarks, where WekaIO outperformed all previously submitted dedicated appliance results by 2X, reaching 1200 simultaneous software builds. Matrix is ideal for data intensive use cases where time to results is of paramount importance. Examples include artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, business analytics and risk analysis, genomics and bioimaging. Standard industry benchmarks and customer deployments have validated that WekaIO Matrix is delivers faster performance than state-of-the-art all-flash arrays, which we feel, means Matrix fully embodies the Gartner Cool Vendor premise of innovative, impactful and intriguing technology."
