When SGI announced earlier this year that they expect their public cloud business to start declining, they countered with a promise to double-down on HPC and Big Data. Towards that end, today the company announced it has acquired the assets of FileTek, Inc., a global provider of Big Data storage virtualization, large-scale data management, and Active Archive.

This acquisition also reflects our strategy to build on SGI’s leadership in High Performance Computing, expertise in Big Data, and experience delivering over 600 petabytes of storage capacity annually, to become a global leader in petascale storage solutions.”
