Weka Named Finalist in 2021 Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards

Business awards program recognizes WekaFS for facilitating AI and solving real problems.

CAMPBELL, Calif., March 30, 2021 – WekaIO™ (Weka), the fastest-growing data platform for artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), life sciences research, enterprise technical computing, and high-performance data analytics (HPDA), today announced that it has been named a finalist in The Business Intelligence Group’s inaugural Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards program. The Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards recognizes those organizations and products that are truly unique and making an impact on the market.

Weka’s Limitless Data Platform™ is built on a shareable, scalable, and distributed file storage system (WekaFS™). Designed to help future-ready clients’ data centers and enable digital transformation, the breakthrough WekaFS solution was architected to leverage the performance benefits of flash, high-speed networking, and compute acceleration technologies (like GPUs) whether the data resides on-premises, in the public cloud, or as a hybrid model. WekaFS stands out as a leading solution because it gives clients the leverage to get more value out of their compute resources, providing a full enterprise-grade solution with advanced security and full cloud integration.

“AI is transforming nearly every aspect of our lives,” said Liran Zvibel, co-founder and CEO at WekaIO. “Companies are quickly discovering that successful AI initiatives depend on a storage infrastructure that delivers speed, simplicity, and incredible scalability. We launched Weka AI™ last year, a transformative solutions framework underpinned by WekaFS, to deliver production-ready solutions and accelerate MLOps by solving the storage challenges common with IO-intensive workloads such as AI. We are glad that Weka is recognized by The Business Intelligence Group for empowering chief data officers, data scientists, and data engineers to accelerate genomics, medical imaging, the financial services industry (FSI), and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) machine learning (ML) pipelines.”

“We are so proud to name Weka as a finalist in our inaugural Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer for Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that Weka is facilitating AI initiatives for their customers that are improving lives. Congratulations to the entire team!”
