Zebware, Wasabi to Deliver Ultra-Performant Datalakes at a Disruptively Affordable Price

The Swedish software company Zebware and Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, join forces to enable low-cost, scalable, and ultra-performant cloud-based data lakes.

Zebware’s cloud data memory bridge, ZebClient, delivers an outstanding boost to cloud data access speeds. ZebClient uniquely disaggregates storage from compute and maximises the utilisation of local persistent memory to provide an exceptional performance where up to 500 times faster access speeds were demonstrated in tests performed at Intel’s 5G Innovation Centre in Stockholm, Sweden.

Wasabi provides low-cost, fast, and reliable cloud storage on-demand. Its high-performance storage is 80% less expensive than traditional cloud providers with no fees for egress or API requests. The combination of ZebClient and Wasabi cloud storage is a perfect match for data lakes as data access speeds, availability and scalability are all significantly accelerated.

With its proprietary erasure code at its core, ZebClient increases the speed of reads and writes by maximising and optimising the utilisation of PMEM/NVMe/SSD. The built-in tiering algorithms safeguard the performance. ZebClient also provides a unified access for object and file data and is available for deployments on bare metal, hypervisors, Docker and in a beta version for Kubernetes. For businesses, this enables placing data including data used for advanced operations, such as AI, ML and Analytics applications in the cloud and maximising the potential of a hybrid strategy – maintaining high performance at a lower cost and with the unlimited scalability the cloud offers.

“Applications being served data via ZebClient can operate as if the cloud data were present on-prem,” said Richard Czech, VP of EMEA Sales for Wasabi. “The joint ZebClient and Wasabi solution truly provides the best of the two worlds of on-prem and cloud to secure a high-performance, cost-efficient, durable and scalable IT infrastructure solution.”

“Traditionally, boosting performance is a matter of chasing and removing bottlenecks in the infrastructure. Our product eliminates the need for this and what ZebClient also does is to facilitate a new type of data management architecture resulting in radically improved performance, cost cuts, flexibility and scalability”, says Zebware CEO Marie Johansson.

“We see Wasabi as a perfect match for us, with a pioneering offering that is superbly created to capture the opportunities that our joint ultra-high performance hybrid-cloud solutions offer. We look forward to opening the ability to use the low-cost and durable cloud storage to serve data to advanced applications on-prem. Together, we can make an even greater difference in boosting the adoption of cloud-based data lakes, concludes Marie Johansson.

ZebClient is available for download and is offered on a subscription basis where the price is based on the actual usage of the product.
