GPU Cloud - VMware moves ahead?


Since I wrote about GPU cloud a week ago, I met another two software companies which are interested in this issue.

Is there any change in the foreseen future? The following post by Michael Larabel reveals a possible answer: "Tungsten Graphics has been acquired by VMware. Open source graphics technology development will continue as part of VMware's engineering team". VMware is the leading virtualization player in the market (but weaker in the cloud market) and this move will probably lead to "improving the 3D support within virtualized environments".

Probably, a move of a key technology player will enable cloud service providers provide better GPU support in the future.
