Accelerating Virtualized & Distributed Cassandra databases with FPGAs


Introduction Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) as accelerators for data center workloads are beginning to cross the chasm of broader adoption. FPGAs have been around for more than twenty-five years and have successfully accelerated IO-centric applications such as network routers and storage controllers. FPGAs are reconfigurable hardware that offer software-like flexibility while delivering hardware-like performance Read more...

Scaling Distributed Machine Learning leveraging vSphere, Bitfusion and NVIDIA GPU (Part 2 of 2)


In part 1 of this blog we introduced distributed machine learning and virtualized infrastructure components used in the solution. In this part, we will look at the testing methodology and the results. The scalability of worker nodes and fractional GPUs leveraging Bitfusion will be analyzed.     5 Testing   5.1        Running the Distributed TensorFlow Read more...
