GMP rust swap disks

On the web page Computing billions of π digits using GMP
I found this line:

"One needs around 250 top-capacity rust swap disks in order to compute 1
quadrillion digits,"

I know what a 'swap disk' is, and I suspect 'rust' refers to a programming
language, but I do not understand the connection. Why 'rust swap disks' as
opposed to just 'swap disks'?
