“Building the World’s Fastest File System: Weka.IO”

Abstract: For decades, folks all over the world who use computing to solve problems or conduct business, have had to grapple (near physical wrestle) with problems relating to solving the data storage issues. From demands of all end users (scientists, engineers, business, students, government, etc.) – all of them require fast access to the data, growing sizes of data, ever wide variety or type of data: text, databases, video, audio, graphic images, etc.  IT folks have struggled to make this an easy thing but without much success.

There is a new kid on the block – with the name of Weka.IO(ask them how they came up with that name), which seems to have addressed this in an innovative manner. Created by the original founders of storage sold by IBM – they have used their experience to vastly improve many of the old issues, IT leaders, analysts, support persons, automotive engineers struggling to save all that data from those Self Driving vehicles, data capture systems, etc., all will benefit from checking this out. Weka.IO has built the world’s fastest parallel file system, designed to solve the performance challenger in AI deep learning and technical computing.
