Reduced Time to Results - Due to High Performance and Microsecond Latency
HPE Solutions for Weka is designed for flash using NVMe SSD technology, WekaFS software accesses the underlying flash media directly in its native 4KB format, so that both small files and large data sets can be processed in record time.
Low latency InfiniBand or 100GbE support means that data does not have to be local to the client for best performance. Data is dynamically distributed across the cluster for parallel access, resilience, and consistent performance and scalability.
The WekaFS software from HPE can leverage a single infrastructure to work on-premises or in the cloud (public or private) and elastically scale to match the requirements of your CPU or GPU resources.
Reduced CAPEX and OPEX - Through Improved Resource Utilization
HPE Solutions for Weka's full POSIX compliance means applications won't need to be rewritten to take advantage of WekaFS performance.
This architecture allows shared POSIX-based access to all your data without the requirement for unnecessary copies for data protection, providing full storage resource utilization.
Multiprotocol support - POSIX, NFS, Object/S3, NVIDIA GPUDirect Storage (GDS), Camera Serial Interface (CSI), and Server Message Block (SMB) allowing one platform to serve your data lifecycle needs.
The WekaFS supports expansion of the global namespace by tiering to any S3-compatible object store (HPE provisioned, third party or public cloud) for cost-effective storage at massive scale.
Cloud Scale and Economics for Increased ROI
HPE Solutions for Weka's innovative Snap-to-S3 feature enables cloud bursting, remote backup to the cloud, and cloud-based disaster recovery.
Supports private or hybrid cloud environments without modification.
With WekaFS software from HPE, you can create a flexible infrastructure tuned for HPE hardware that can not only handle peak workloads but also scales for performance and capacity growth as system requirements evolve.
Complete Feature Set and Outstanding Performance for Demanding Enterprise Workloads
HPE Solutions for Weka's native flash implementation and support for high-performance interconnect fabrics helps eliminate the bottlenecks associated with legacy storage approaches, and the solution can be easily monitored, tuned, and managed using an intuitive browser-based administration console.
The solution supports Ethernet and InfiniBand of up to 200 Gbps and beyond, allowing full use of existing network, while accommodating future upgrades for improved performance and low latency. The software-defined platform enables flexible adaptation to future generations of infrastructure.
The WekaFS software from HPE supports small and large files, random and sequential access, and accelerates metadata access with distributed parallel access.
WekaFS delivers many enterprise features that are mandatory, including snapshots, clones, encryption (at rest and in-flight), key management, user authentication, client authentication, tiering, cloud-bursting, quotas, Kubernetes persistent storage, network high availability, and much more.
