Episode 4 - SwiftStack
Updated: Nov 25, 2019
This week on Storage Intensity, Joe Arnold, Founder and Chief Product Officer at SwiftStack, Inc joins us to discuss SwiftStack's evolution from an object storage solution to a data platform. SwiftStack does well in traditional object storage use cases like backup and archiving. Still, the company's focus is on more production class workloads like feeding NVIDIA GPU-driven artificial intelligence clusters, serving data analytics applications like Splunk, and supporting several popular video streaming services.
In this episode, we talk about what makes SwiftStack different so it can support these non-traditional object storage workloads. We also discuss how SwiftStack works with multiple clouds and other more traditional on-premises storage solutions as part of their data platform. We end the podcast with a deep dive on erasure coding and geo-distribution.
