WEKA Delivers the X Factor Resellers Need to Fuel Their Customers’ AI, ML, HPC, and Cloud Initiatives and Close Deals Faster
CAMPBELL, Calif., February 16, 2023 – WekaIO (WEKA), the data platform provider for performance-intensive workloads, today announced the launch of its new global channel partner program, WEKA X, renewing its commitment to a channel-led, partner-first sales strategy. The new program gives value-added resellers (VARs), system integrators (SIs), and managed service providers (MSPs) a comprehensive toolkit of training, certifications, exclusive pricing, and incentives to streamline deal registration and help them build a profitable business with WEKA.
Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), high-performance computing (HPC), and other performance-intensive workloads are reshaping how organizations store, manage, process, and analyze their data; at the same time, cloud adoption is accelerating globally. These next-generation technologies are straining traditional data architectures, intensifying the need for significantly higher performance, extreme scalability, better data portability, and a simpler, more sustainable approach to data management. The WEKA® Data Platform was purpose-built to meet the performance and scale demands of performance-intensive workloads in the cloud, at the edge, on-premises, and in hybrid cloud environments.
“The market has reached an inflection point. Organizations want to use next-generation technologies like AI and ML to solve previously insurmountable challenges and achieve critical breakthroughs in research and discovery. They quickly realize their legacy data architectures are holding them back,” said Jonathan Martin, president at WEKA. “This is driving a complete rethink and replacement of the enterprise data stack as we know it, presenting a significant opportunity for the channel. WEKA is the x-factor they need to capitalize on it.”
As the industry’s only software-defined, hybrid cloud solution for performance-intensive workloads, the WEKA Data Platform delivers a significant technology advantage to channel partners that want to help their customers harness next-generation technologies and run them in a hybrid cloud or multicloud configuration. Its advanced architecture helps to solve complex data challenges and can eliminate the data silos and latency caused by traditional data architectures, replacing them with highly efficient streaming data pipelines capable of unleashing the full potential of their AI, ML, and HPC investments and unlocking maximum value from their data.
