WEKA, an Israeli startup that offers a data platform for AI, raised $73 million in funding led by Hitachi Ventures. This raise brings the total amount of funds raised by WEKA to $140 million to date. Other investors participating in this round were strategic investors, including Hewlett Packard Enterprise, NVIDIA, Micron, and Cisco. The company will use the funds to accelerate go-to-market activities, operations, and engineering.

Founded in 2013 by Israeli entrepreneurs Liran Zvibel, the CEO, Maor Ben-Dayan and Omri Palmon, Weka offers WekaFS, a modern file system that “empowers organizations to solve the newest, biggest problems holding back innovation.”

Optimized for NVMe and the hybrid cloud, Weka states that it handles storage challenges in the most data-intensive technical computing environments, delivering truly epic performance at any scale. NVM Express (NVMe) or Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface Specification (NVMHCIS) is an open, logical-device interface specification for accessing a computer’s non-volatile storage media usually attached via PCI Express (PCIe) bus.

Weka says that its modern architecture “unlocks the full capabilities of today’s data center, allowing businesses to maximize the value of their high-powered IT investments.”
