WEKA on OCI delivers 2 terabytes per second performance

Pinkesh Valdria, Principal Solutions Architect, Oracle

Oracle and WEKA are proud to announce the availability of WEKA on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Both companies have been working together to validate that WEKA can run on OCI bare metal instances to deliver the highest level of performance that customers demand for their critical workloads. Along with performance, we’ve also validated transparent storage tiering for WEKA by using S3-compatible Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Object Storage as a low-cost tier. This option enables customers to run at petabyte scale in a high-performance file system by using local NVMe SSDs for hot data and object storage for warm or cold data.
