TensorFlow is the machine learning (ML) framework you use with Bitfusion.

Install TensorFlow by using pip3, which is the package installer for Python 3.


  1. If you install TensorFlow on Ubuntu 20.04, install additional Python resources.
    sudo apt-get -y install python3-testresources
  2. Install pip3 by running the command sequence for your Linux distribution and version.
    • Ubuntu 20.04
      sudo apt-get install -y python3-pip
    • CentOS 8 and Red Hat Linux 8
      sudo yum install -y python36-devel
      sudo pip3 install -U pip setuptools
  3. Install TensorFlow by using the pip3 install command.
    sudo pip3 install tensorflow-gpu==2.4

What to do next

You can run TensorFlow benchmarks to test your vSphere Bitfusion deployment's performance. See Install TensorFlow BenchMarks.
