About Us

Swarm64 took on what experts consider the most valuable contribution to big data analytics: Enabling customers to extract maximum value from their data in real time by adding FPGA-accelerated analytics processing (OLAP) to the native transaction processing (OLTP) of popular open-source databases.
We believe our continued excellence is the result of well-functioning teams who innovate by predicting and executing customer’s needs. Swarmers are motivated individual contributors who embrace challenge, enjoy the discovery process, are effective and exercise intellectual humility.
