Profiler Evaluates Performance, Detects Limitations, Suggests Better Configurations for Compute-Intensive Application Workflows
Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 15, 2015
Bitfusion, a developer of advanced optimization technologies for high-performance and hardware-accelerated applications, today announced Bitfusion Labs, a collaborative proving ground for new research and development efforts. The company also announced its first Labs project, Profiler. Profiler is available starting today as a free beta.
Profiler quickly evaluates application performance across a variety of hardware and software configurations. It automatically detects limitations and whether a particular application might benefit from larger memory footprints, multiple sockets, more cores, larger disk drives or even a different cloud provider. Then Profiler suggests optimal configurations, helping users determine which instance types are fastest and which offer the best value.
“Bitfusion Labs gives us a novel way to collaborate with our install base on new frontiers and prove out bleeding-edge products. Profiler is a great example of our roadmap adapting to vocal needs in the market,” said Bitfusion co-founder and CEO, Subbu Rama. “We developed Profiler to meet our own benchmarking needs and because our customers had been asking us about a benchmarking solution for some time. We’re all eager for Profiler to see wider use now.”
End users working on everything from 3D modeling and graphics rendering to scientific computing will benefit from Profiler. Until now, there has not been a comprehensive way of understanding how workflows stack up. Any benchmarking requires time-intensive manual scripting based on trial-and-error.
To get started with Profiler, users access a complete Linux environment directly from their browser and use Bitfusion’s Workload Builder to install programs and utilities and write scripts, just as they would on a home system or server. Bitfusion provides sample workloads and detailed documentation.
After analyzing application stacks across a vast pool of systems and configurations, Profiler returns results that are easily accessible from an interactive dashboard. These reports deliver high-resolution performance data and detailed runtime information, giving developers, end users and organizations the information they need to optimize their cloud infrastructure.
“Which machine configurations give optimal performance? Which instance types offer the best value?” asked Bitfusion co-founder and COO Maciej Bajkowski. “Which cloud provider should one choose? Can an application benefit from faster hard drives, a larger memory footprint, multiple sockets or more cores? Until now our customers could only answer these questions ad hoc.”
Key Features and benefits of Bitfusion Profiler include:
- Automatic benchmarking of applications across different machine types
- Interactive reports with key performance indicators
- Ability to compare and combine various reports
- Pre-installed development tools and OpenCL support
- Online interface for easy workload creation and management
- On-premise solutions for enterprise customers
Coming Soon to Profiler:
- Comparison across multiple cloud providers
- Docker repository integration
- Command-line interface
- Continuous integration support
Bitfusion Profiler is free and available in public beta as of today. Anyone can get started at: https://profiler.bitfusionlabs.com. For a fee, Profiler can also be used as an on-premise solution for enterprise customers who want to install Profiler directly onto their own infrastructure. To find out more about using Profiler on-premise, please contact: info(at)bitfusion(dot)io.
“Profiler is just the first in a long line of innovative new products that we expect to launch under Bitfusion Labs,” said Mazhar Memon, CTO of Bitfusion. “With Bitfusion Labs, we’re collaborating closely with our customers and others in the market to develop new products, experiment with new technologies and iterate quickly.”
The Bitfusion team plans to continue making the technologies developed in Bitfusion Labs publicly available to users after a period of testing. A few upcoming releases are:
- Fast R, a distribution of the R statistical programming language with automatic hardware-acceleration baked-in.
- Bitfusion Boost, which automatically accelerates compute-intensive applications.
- An experimental solution for personal computing that runs Bitfusion software on a small, external hardware accelerator.
Bitfusion is a developer of advanced optimization technologies for the world’s most compute-intensive applications. We deliver unprecedented speed and automatic acceleration on any infrastructure.
