In August 2019, VMware acquired BitFusion, a pioneer in the virtualization of hardware accelerated devices with a strong focus on GPU technology. BitFusion offers a software platform that decouples specific physical resources from the servers they are attached to in the environment. The acquisition of BitFusion will bolster VMware’s strategy of supporting AI- and ML-based workloads by virtualizing hardware accelerators. These accelerators can be used regardless of location in the environment – on-premises and/or in the cloud.
