SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 9, 2018--WekaIO, the innovation leader in high-performance, scalable file storage for data intensive applications, today announced that it has been awarded its ninth patent in the United States; this one for “Congestion Mitigation in a Distributed Storage System.” The patent was filed on June 15, 2017 and awarded on July 10, 2018 under patent number 10019165.

This freshly patented technology is at the core of WekaIO’s ability to offer the kind of high data availability that is making it the de facto first-choice of leading AI innovators as well as enterprises with data-intensive applications. Indeed, the company owes its status as the world’s fastest parallel file system to this patented ability to mitigate congestion in a distributed storage system.

Recently, independent SPEC SFS 2014 test results, revealed that using off-the-shelf industry-standard components, WekaIO’s software achieved 1200 simultaneous software builds and 600K IOPS at 1 millisecond overall response time, outperforming a combination of IBM Spectrum Scale™ 5.0 with NVMe-over-fabrics appliance by 2X.
