was acquired by Walmart in 2018

What Happened?

The decision to sell to Walmart did not come easily. With millions using the service, suddenly competition from larger players offering “free” use to include Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and NVIDIA created a challenge fundraising for server growth. Selling became the only strategy in the face of “free services” offered from the deep pocketed competition.

Verizon, Samsung, and Walmart were using LiquidSky's GPU Cloud. Reportedly Samsung, Apple, Amazon, and Walmart began competing discussions to acquire LiquidSky.

What's Next?

Some members of the LiquidSky team got together to start a new platform called "REAL" - is owned and managed by fans of LiquidSky and is in no way affiliated with LiquidSky Software, Inc.
