Nvidia acquires SwiftStack

In the words of Joe Arnold:

Last year, when we announced SwiftStack 7, we unveiled our focus on the SwiftStack Data Platform for AI, HPC, and accelerated computing. This included SwiftStack 1space as a valuable piece of the puzzle, enabling data acceleration in the core, at the edge, and in the cloud.

To our existing customers — we will continue to maintain, enhance, and support 1space, ProxyFS, Swift, and the Controller. SwiftStack’s technology is already a key part of NVIDIA’s GPU-powered AI infrastructure, and this acquisition will strengthen what we do for you.

Building AI supercomputers is exciting to the entire SwiftStack team. We couldn’t be more thrilled [...]

Highlighting 1space as the centerpiece of the acquisition seems strange. All I knew about it was a cloud-to-cloud data pumping service. Hardly any HPC stuff. I could see how Nvidia might want ProxyFS to replace Hadoop, but not this.

The core Swift continues unchanged for now.
