How do you choose the right storage platform?

As early as 2020, according to IDC, 90% of data in companies was poorly structured and therefore poorly used.* 2 years later, the phenomenon has intensified further.
Why is this data so poorly organised? The answer lies directly in the multi-layered structure of corporate IT architectures! In the past, IT vendors developed architectures that met each workload requirement separately. For example, one for the SAN, another for NAS and yet another for storage. Then there is an additional layer with hybrid or multi-cloud strategies. Management then becomes complicated due to incompatible tools and processes as well as different architectures.
But there is a better solution. And at Bechtle, we opted for Weka.

What is Weka?

Today’s workloads require a new category of storage. This must provide the performance, manageability and scalability required to achieve or maintain a company’s competitive edge.

The Weka data platform was designed and optimised for modern data-intensive workloads. It is specifically designed to take data storage and availability to the next level as the performance requirements in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) continue to increase.

Its architecture and performance are designed to optimise GPU utilisation in cloud, on-premise or hybrid deployments, delivering data that can accelerate EPOCH Comprehension Time by up to 80x.

The 3 must-haves of an excellent storage platform

When selecting the best possible storage platform, it is necessary to focus on three strategic elements: Simplicity of management, speed of execution and scalability. The ideal is to choose a solution from the intersection of these three elements.





Indeed, ease of management, system performance and scalability to meet demand are the most important considerations when selecting a storage solution. Weka’s solutions represent the intersection of these 3 criteria and thus meet the actual needs of the market in the best possible way.
