Bitfusion Integrated Into vSphere
VMware will integrate Bitfusion into its flagship data center virtualization platform vSphere. The integration roadmap between Bitfusion and VMware could change the way companies leverage hardware accelerators in their data centers as VMware is hoping to create a standardize virtualized accelerated computing solution both in the cloud and on-premises with Bitfusion technology. Combining vSphere with Bitfusion Flex Direct will “deliver a cloud operational model to an emerging part of the data center as well as bridge the gap between the traditional CPU-only infrastructure and infrastructure featuring hardware acceleration technologies,” said VMware’s Prasad.
Bitfusion vendor- and hardware-agnostic technology will allow customers to virtualize their GPUs and share processing power across multiple virtual server.
VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger said in a recent tweet, “Delighted to welcome @bitfusionio to the family. We will address #AI and #MachineLearning as never before making GPU a proper element of computing fabric.”
