In response to receiving this honor, Perry said, “This recognition from CRN is validation for Weka’s commitment to a channels-first strategy and the dedication from myself and the other channel leadership within the organization to scale the organization through the partner ecosystem.

WekaIO has established itself as an enabler of digital transformation and the accelerated datacenter, used by enterprise organizations across industries and supporting high-performance computing (HPC), AI/ML, and high-performance data analytics (HPDA) workloads.
