This is the ninth patent for this innovative company with the world's
fastest parallel file system

the innovation leader in high-performance, scalable file storage for
data intensive applications, today announced that it has been awarded
its ninth patent in the United States; this one for "Congestion
Mitigation in a Distributed Storage System." The patent was filed on
June 15, 2017 and awarded on July 10, 2018 under patent number 10019165.

This freshly patented technology is at the core of WekaIO's ability to
offer the kind of high data availability that is making it the de facto
first-choice of leading AI innovators as well as enterprises with
