Accelerated Solutions for WekaIO™ WekaFS™

WekaIO and Micron have created a scalable, software-defined storage architecture that brings the performance of Micron SSDs with NVMe™ together with WekaFS™ to energize your data-intensive workloads.

Why WekaFS and Micron SSDs With NVMe?

Starting as small as 30TB and scaling to hundreds of petabytes in a single namespace. Leveraging the performance of NVMe with the scale of cloud-centric object storage, WekaFS and Micron can provide the scalability modern workloads demand.

Simplicity is at the heart of WekaFS. Simple to understand, simple to deploy and simple to manage, WekaFS uses a single global namespace and supports only two tiers of persistent storage: NVMe SSDs for active data and a cloud-centric object store for a data lake. Decisions on where an actual file exists are automatically managed to ensure the best performance possible for each workload.

When the goal was to get the best possible performance results for three industry-standard benchmarks, WekaIO chose Micron 9000 series SSDs with NVMe; resulting in impressive performance metrics for the SPEC SFS® 2014, the HPC IO-500 and the financial industry’s STAC-M3™ benchmarks.


How It's Built

The WekaIO architecture offers a departure from legacy storage systems. WekaFS is a fully distributed, parallel file system that is designed to deliver high-performance file services. It leverages SSDs with NVMe while offering massive scalability using object storage. WekaFS supports a broad set of client access, file-based protocols via POSIX, NFS, CIFS and NVIDIA GPUDirect™ Storage.

Common WekaFS Deployment Models

  • On-Premises Storage – In local data centers using SSDs with NVMe and WekaIO-native object storage or any S3-compliant, on-premises object store.
  • Native Public Cloud – On Amazon Web Services EC2 instances with locally attached SSDs with NVMe and Amazon S3 object storage.
  • Hybrid Cloud – On-premises servers to host high-performance SSDs with NVMe in combination with public S3-compliant object storage services.
