VMware taps pros in the field to write the book on SD-WAN
Software-defined wide area networking is getting a lot of press. Some claim it’s the skeleton key to a number of vexing information-technology puzzles, like multicloud and internet of things, for example. Is there a way businesses can cut through the hype and find out if SD-WAN is really for them? “There is a lot of noise out there,” said Dave Twinam (pictured, left), director of systems engineering SD-WAN, VeloCloud Business Unit, at VMware Inc. The many vendors including VMware bringing SD-WAN solutions to market may not be dumb about the topic. But it might be preferable to hear from enterprise-IT practitioners actually using it day in, day out. “You don’t understand what the implementation’s going to be like until you’re in it,” said Rosa Lear (pictured, right), director of marketing of the VeloCloud Business Unit at VMware.

VMware Introduces Delivery of Elastic Infrastructure for AI/ML Applications with VMware vSphere 7

VMware | June 22, 2020

VMware, Inc. introduced a new integrated feature in VMware vSphere 7 that will enable enterprises to deliver elastic infrastructure on-demand for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) applications. This new feature—VMware vSphere Bitfusion—is developed out of VMware’s 2019 acquisition of Bitfusion, a pioneer in the virtualization of hardware accelerator resources including graphics processing unit (GPU) technology. Organizations use hardware accelerators such as GPUs to dramatically improve the performance of AI/ML workloads that may run several hours or longer. IT teams have come to realize that these hardware accelerators are isolated islands—unable to be shared across many parts of the business. The inability to share those resources leads to inefficient and poor utilization of both existing and newly purchased resources. The combination of Bitfusion and VMware vSphere will help organizations achieve cost savings, enable resource sharing out of the box, and deliver the right hardware accelerator resource, like a GPU, to the right workload at the right time.
