Announcing Fungible GPU-Connect - Connect Any GPU to Any Server Over Ethernet

Fungible, Inc., the composable infrastructure company, today announced a new product offering, Fungible GPU-Connect (FGC ), an innovative solution engineered to revolutionize how data processing power is accessed in enterprise and service provider infrastructures. Fungible GPU-Connect solves the challenges caused by the growing demand for AI/ML, especially in Edge Data Centers with stranded and underutilized GPUs. FGC leverages the Fungible DPU to dynamically compose GPU and CPU resources across an Ethernet network. This provides significant economic benefits and agility to organizations that provision, allocate, and manage expensive GPU resources. For the first time, organizations can create a GPU-powered infrastructure free from the physical limitations of PCIe.

FGC allows data centers to centralize their existing GPU assets into a single resource pool to be attached to servers on demand. Instead of dedicated GPUs sitting idle most of the time, data centers can provide new users with access to the GPU pool, making greater use of existing assets. This disaggregated solution also removes the constraints of having GPUs and CPUs physically co-located. They can be located anywhere within the same data center, eliminating the stranding of expensive GPU resources. The Fungible DPU creates a secure, virtual PCIe connection between the GPU and the server that is transparent to the server and to applications - no special software or drivers are needed. This connection is managed in hardware by the DPU, ensuring a high-performance and low latency connection. This transparency means FGC can be easily retrofitted into existing environments, and can scale with growing demand, ensuring GPUs are always available when they are needed.
