WekaIO Satisfies Applications' Need for Speed

“It’s always important to understand what the application’s trying to do,” says Andy Watson, CTO of WekaIO. If it can’t get the data it needs, as fast as it needs it, you have a bottleneck and lousy performance. What’s required, Watson tells ActualTech Media CEO Scott Lowe in this RoadCast video, is a shared file system that ensures data is available to the applications. WekaIO delivers all the bandwidth those apps crave, speeding up your processes and making your organization more efficient.

WekaIO does this by providing a distributed, scalable, fully parallel filesystem that keeps file metadata from being that bottleneck that makes your systems crawl. What does that mean? Watch the video to find out!

In the second video below, Watson and Lowe dive into more particulars of WekaIO’s solution, including the ways that IO bottlenecks pop up all throughout a system. One time it may be the CPU, another time the RAM, yet another time the storage itself or the network. Watson says it’s like “Whac-A-Mole.” Implementing WekaIO and speeding up your storage dramatically may help alleviate some of your slowdown issues.
