Weka Changes the Game on the AWS Cloud
Extreme Performance at Scale Without Breaking the Bank
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. But ultimately the level of support that WekaIO gave was the deciding factor.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, because of all these headaches, might have taken us 3 months, and now we can do these exact same experiments in less than 1 weekJon Sorenson, Vice President, Technology DevelopmentWatch the Webinar
We are using the Weka shared file system on AWS instead of Lustre for its stability and their stellar support for our geospatial workflows.Alessandro Menegaz, Cloud IT Manager, Tre AltamiraWatch Video
