Who is Bitfusion?

Today, CPUs are not sufficiently addressing new workloads such as machine learning and AI, whereas GPUs and FPGAs are taking a larger share of the evolving Data Center, leaving businesses with challenges when incorporating AI into their business model. Bitfusion created the industry’s first elastic and virtual OS for GPUs and FPGAs. Using machine learning as our first use case, Bitfusion provides a platform for data scientists, developers, and IT managers to jumpstart innovation as well as accomplish the most effective mass deployment.

Bitfusion was founded with a vision to make at-scale heterogeneous computing accessible to any organization and build the operating system for the next generation computing. The company’s products allow data scientists, developers and IT managers to cluster, share, scale and manage compute resources to reduce the costs and complexity associated with the AI application lifecycle. Bitfusion has offices in Silicon Valley and Austin, Texas.

Leadership Team

Michael Zimmerman

Michael Zimmerman
Chief Executive Officer

Michael has more than 25 years of experience in building new businesses, innovating new products, and disrupting technology markets with his strong leadership. Michael held a range of executive positions in both public and private companies. Until Sep-2017, Michael lead the transformation of Marvell networking to a leading position in Enterprise and Data Centers. Before Marvell, Michael was an executive for 4 years for private companies considered as industry leaders such as Annapurna Labs, who develops high-performance Smart Network Interface Card (acquired by Amazon Web Services), and Tilera, the MIT-based many-core processor company, which was acquired by Mellanox. Between 2001-2003 Michael Zimmerman worked in Radlan, an Israeli private software company, which had a production network operating system used by several Tier-1 players as a standard across their portfolio. In 2003 Marvell acquired Radlan, and Michael served in a range of management positions including Vice President and General Manager. Michael is a Stanford graduate where he attended the Executive Business Program, as well as, holds an MS in Computer Science from NSU University, an MBA from Tel Aviv University and a BS in Electrical Engineering at the Tel Aviv University, where he earned Summa Cum Laude.
Subbu has extensive experience in leading large cross-functional teams building products and engineering from the ground up. He’s held various roles at Intel, shepherding various engineering programs, spanning across design, automation, validation, and post-silicon. He worked on Intel’s first Integrated GPU, their first low-power CPU Atom and its SOC, High-performance micro-servers (Intel’s first initiative on micro-servers using low power mobile phone processors), as well as Xeon servers. Then at Dell, he was first in the innovation lab leading multiple product initiatives, and then later managing numerous pan-Dell strategic technology initiatives at the intersection of software and cloud. Right before he founded Bitfusion, Subbu built an engineering team from ground-up and launched Dell’s first Cloud Infrastructure Marketplace Brokerage. Subbu received his MS in Computer Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
