Bitfusion’s Special Sauce

Bitfusion is a pioneer in virtualized software for accelerated computing aimed at helping business accelerate complex workloads on GPUs (graphics processor units), FPGAs (field-programmable gate arrays) and ASICs (application-specific integrated circuits). The startup’s architecture speeds up performance by offloading processing to accelerator chips.

Founded in 2015, Bitfusion provides better sharing of GPU resources among isolated GPU compute workloads, allowing sharing to happen across the customer’s network environment. The company offers a software platform that decouples specific physical resources from the servers they are attached to.

“For example, the platform can share GPUs in a virtualized infrastructure, as a pool of network-accessible resources, rather than isolated resources per server,” said Krish Prasad, senior vice president and general manager for VMware’s Cloud Platform Business Unit in a statement. “Bitfusion offers for hardware acceleration what VMware offered to the compute landscape several years ago. Bitfusion also aligns well with VMware’s “Any Cloud, Any App, Any Device” vision with its ability to work across AI frameworks, clouds, networks, and formats such as virtual machines and containers.”
