Virtual Stack

Jul 16, 2020

vSphere Bitfusion delivers elastic infrastructure for AI/ML workloads by creating pools of hardware accelerator resources, such as GPUs. VMware has acquired Bitfusion in late-2019 and it has been recently announced that Bitfusion will be an integrated feature of vSphere 7.0.

On the 36th episode of Virtual Stack Podcast, I'm joined by Mike Adams (Sr. Director Cloud Platform Product Marketing at VMware) and we discuss about vSphere Bitfusion, its technology and use cases.

You can reach out to Mike on Twitter and LinkedIn, and you can learn more about vSphere Bitfusion via mailer. 

Virtual Stack is available on all major apps: Apple Podcast, Spotify, Google Podcast, Stitcher and more. As usual, feel free to share your feedback via Twitter (@emregirici), LinkedIn or
