Bitfusion’s New Cloud Adaptor Lets Developers Use GPUs And FPGAs In The Cloud

Disrupt Battlefield alum Bitfusion wants to help developers get to best compute performance out of their hardware, be it their legacy desktops or specialized high-performance compute clouds.With Boost, Bitfusion showed how it can speed up existing applications by optimizing their libraries for the hardware in a given machine. After testing Boost in private alpha for the last few months, Bitfusion has now moved the service into beta and you can sign up for it here. Bitfusion co-founder and CEO Subbu Rama and CTO Maciej Bajkowski tell me that a lot of its early users were especially excited about using Boost for machine learning and data science projects. For now, Boost only works with a number of specific applications (Blender, ImageMagick, Octave, Matlab, Torch, for example), but the team plans to add more over time. The company sees…
