TAM WEBINARS @ VMWARE
November 2019 – Bitfusion Technical Overview
Date: Thursday, November 14th
Time: 11:00am EST/ 10:00am CST/ 8:00am PST
Duration: 1 Hour

Synopsis:
This session will provide a technical overview of the Bitfusion product along with a timeline of how the product will move forward at VMware. In the overview and demo, our tech team will discuss and show how Bitfusion’s FlexDirect provides network-attached GPUs (full or partial) in order to create an elastic infrastructure for today’s AI/ML workloads. VMware plans to integrate this technology into the core vSphere platform and use it as an entry point for integration with other hardware acceleration technologies (for example – FPGAs). Bitfusion was acquired by VMware in August of 2019.
Guest speakers:
Peter Buckingham – Director of Engineering, VMware (former VP Engineering at Bitfusion)
Jim Brogan – Technical Marketing Manager, VMware (former Technical Engineer for Bitfusion)
