WEKA for the Cloud

Run any workload on any cloud, even the “impossible” ones


Learn how Preymaker uses WEKA to enable content production in the cloud.

The WEKA® Data Platform provides a cloud-native, unified approach to your data that gives you the economics and scale you expect in the cloud while delivering performance that enables even the most demanding workloads.

Run high performance applications in the cloud

The WEKA™ Data Platform unifies high performance flash storage and low-cost object storage in a single namespace ensuring every application you run in the cloud gets the performance it requires.

Control your cloud costs by optimizing resources

WEKA eliminates the need for multiple copies of your data across high performance and capacity tiers and seamlessly enables long term retention either in the cloud or on premises.

Elastically scale your data with your applications

WEKA automatically scales up to meet the changing performance needs of your applications. When complete, WEKA scales back down so you don’t pay for capacity you don’t need.

Easily run any workload on any cloud

WEKA provides the industry’s first multi-cloud data platform supporting on premises, edge, hybrid, and cloud deployments, so you can optimize where and how you use your data.

Build agile data pipelines

Enable every artist, researcher, and data scientist to seamlessly collaborate from any location using a single shared data set to deliver breakthrough results previously not possible in the cloud.

Wherever you cloud, we've got you


We needed to replicate our on-premises high performance computing environment in the cloud to be more scalable and more agile. WEKA and AWS enabled us to deliver a highly performant and compatible cloud environment which researchers could tell the difference in operations. By using the WEKA and AWS, we’re able to deliver breakthrough results for our customers faster.

I looked at a lot of storage systems in AWS and chose WEKA because of the ability to tier to S3 storage for best cost given the volume of data we are creating.

Samuel Reid, Head of Technology, Untold StudiosWatch Now

If you’re not utilizing S3 well in the cloud, then you are missing a trick. WEKA’s ability to provide seamless, fully automated tiering into S3 was one of the big selling points for us.

Alan McSeveney, Head of TechnologyLearn More

The ability to write to S3 and read back very quickly using WEKA, changed our game a lot. We can now consider experiments that earlier might have taken us 3 months, and now we can do these exact same experiments in less than 1 week

We are using the WEKA shared file system on AWS instead of Lustre for its stability and stellar support for our geospatial workflows. Using WEKA, we completed one of the most demanding analysis that we have ever made in less than two weeks with Matrix. In contrast, with the Lustre system we built, a similar analysis a year ago took two months and we spent three times as much.

Industry use cases

  • Life sciences
  • Media & entertainment
  • Financial services

Life sciences

Next generation genomic sequencing, bio-imaging, and microscopy require a combination of high throughput and extremely low latency. WEKA enables researchers and scientists to deploy their complex data pipelines to the cloud to improve their scalability and agility without sacrificing performance or overspending.

Media & entertainment

Content production houses, creative agencies, and studios are increasingly turning the cloud to develop content in a agile fashion and enable collaboration between artists. WEKA provides the industry’s only cloud-native, unified data platform that delivers the throughput, low latency, and high IO required to keep up with high frame rates and high bit-depth workflows. Artists can share a single data set across every application in the production pipeline including content creation, visual effects, color correction, rendering, and archival. Dropped frames become a thing of the past, play uncompiled or unrendered content without a hiccup.

Your cloud, your way

The WEKA Data Platform makes it easy to leverage the best of what the cloud has to offer, no matter how you want to use it.

Run natively on any cloud

The WEKA Data Platform provides seamless integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to give you a single, unified deployment option that performs consistently across edge, on-premises, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments.

Learn how
Tier data in the cloud

Integrated data management automatically and seamlessly moves data from the performance tier of flash-based storage to the native object storage capacity tier for massive scalability, all presented in a single namespace for the best economics at petascale.

Learn how
Move data to the cloud

The WEKA Data Platform’s Remote Backup feature sends snapshots of a filesystem – both full and incremental – including metadata, to an object store, so data can be restored on the original WEKA cluster or a new WEKA cluster of any size, on-premises and in the cloud.

Learn how
Burst to the cloud

The WEKA Data Platform makes it simple to maintain a usable copy of on-premises data in the cloud, where you can use elastic compute resources to run calculations and analyses and gain new insights.

Learn how
Migrate data between clouds

The WEKA Data Platform’s unique snap-to-object feature allows users to create a replica of production data and instantly push it to any S3 object store, both on-premises and in the cloud. The cloud copy can be used for workload migration to another application cluster, or to provide a fast recovery point objective (RPO) service guarantee.
