In this video, Mike Adams, VMware’s Senior Director CPBU, AI/ML Market Development, talks with us about a new, integrated VMware vSphere 7 feature enabling “elastic infrastructure” on-demand for AI and machine learning. VMware vSphere Bitfusion is a result of VMware’s 2019 acquisition of Bitfusion, developer of virtualized hardware accelerators, including GPUs, used to improve performance of AI/ML workloads.

VMware vSphere Bitfusion addresses the problem of accelerators becoming isolated islands — unable to be shared across various parts of the business. Adams explains that Bitfusion combined with vSphere is designed to help organizations “deliver the right hardware accelerator resource, like a GPU, to the right workload at the right time.”
