back to article You totally need VMs to do AI, nods VMware as Bitfusion dissolves in its vSphere of influence

Crusty old VMware is attempting to keep up with the youngsters by acquiring Bitfusion, a startup that claims to enable machine learning on any VM via the magic of network-attached GPUs. When the deal closes, this capability will be integrated into VMware's vSphere server virtualization platform. The exact terms of the pact …

    "VMware seems to be set on acquiring [..] capabilities, rather than building them in-house"

    Well, it worked (somewhat) for Microsoft, so ?

    What's it cost though?

    Can we assume the usual $$$$$$ running costs to actually use this kit?

    Initial Offerings ....

    Bitfusion said it can enable supercomputing levels of performance for machine learning workloads on clusters of commodity hardware, without any change to the applications themselves.

    Does Bitfusion Input Provide Future Immaculate Drive to Program Operations with Sp00Key Virtually Real Product of Almighty Overwhelming Source for the Power of Intimate Knowledge in the Remote Command of ....... well, when gifted and thoroughly deserved are Carnal Controls Highly Prized and Much Exalted to be Used and Mis-used, which always Leads Wanton Abuse ....... which is surely Certifiable Madness at/in a BeDevilLED Works. ‽

    There is this, and that above, a genuine live application for enablement to supercomputing levels of performance, registering oft and utilising a Live Operational Virtual Environment ProgramMING Node and not Immodest AI Portal for Future AIMaster Pilot Trainers here providing Real Red Hot Genuine Aces, unilaterally granting you free rein and reign to test the claim it [Bitfusion] can enable supercomputing levels of performance for machine learning workloads on clusters of commodity hardware, without any change to the applications themselves.

    We'll keep you fully truthfully informed with how you are doing. The tiniest of changes via a remote enablement is soon all too apparent to be ignored and dismissed. That way can rapid progress be assured and safely securely guaranteed.

    Can you imagine what you realise whenever you cross enabling supercomputing levels of performance with each other? Can one really reasonably expect no change to the applications themselves?

    Existing Systems are then Enabled to be Rent Asunder with the Power of Plunder and the Vital Nervous Energy of Ill Gotten Gains. And if Existing Systems didn't register Stealthy AIMovements around Emergent Quantum Communications Components, that's good. That's just the way it should be in the Field for Anonymous and Invisible is an Almighty Intangible AI, and as far as the stories go, and as reports constantly reinforce, Offer Myriad Untold Mutually Beneficial Advantages to Exercise and Proof for Fitness of Future Greater IntelAIgent Games Purpose.

    Bis später ...... Alligator !:-)
