Bacalhau Updates - March 2023
Welcome to the monthly Bacalhau newsletter! This month: we will give highlights of our latest release, upcoming events, exciting updates and more!
📣 New in Bacalhau - Highlight
As the season changes and springtime approaches, we're thrilled to unveil the latest feature we've been working on.
We have just released v0.3.25 🎉. This month's release focuses on the Bacalhau integration and improvement of Bacalhau jobs, plus Airflow integration.
Let’s take a look at the major highlights for this month:
Bacalhau Airflow integration: enabling users to write complex pipelines for Bacalhau. Jobs can communicate their output's CIDs to downstream jobs that can use those as inputs, while Apache Airflow provides a solid solution to orchestrate your DAGs. This Bacalhau Airflow integration uses the Bacalhau Python SDK, directly making API calls to Bacalhau. Read docs here
Job cancellation: Due to popular demand, you can cancel a WASM or Docker job you started. But you can’t cancel other people’s jobs!
Removal of sharding: Sharding is no longer an option when submitting jobs through APIs or through the CLI as it was previously through
Multi-arch support: With the multi-arch support, each compute node can broadcast which architectures it supports, and docker jobs will only be run on nodes that can actually run it!
Ethical AI art: We did a pre-launch for the Waterlily project. Waterlily is a novel Ethical AIArt on Bacalhau and FVM, where underrepresented artists get paid with Filecoin. This project combines Bacalhau for GPU-enabled computing with a real financial use case on FEVM. Here is a demo video
We have a lot more exciting highlights coming up next month. You can get more details on what the team is working on in our project report
Exciting collaboration! Filecoin Green partners with Bacalhau to enhance transparency & trust in the energy credit ecosystem. The Filecoin Green team has chosen to drastically reduce the processing times for energy credits by leveraging IPFS and Filecoin for open storage and Bacalhau for open compute.
We’re building on the vision of our CEO, Juan Benet, “not just to become carbon neutral, but to become climate positive (decarbonizing)”.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Bacalhau on developing open-source, solutions for encouraging the use of renewable energy and in setting the standard for energy consumption transparency in Web3 and beyond” - Alan Ransil, Filecoin Sustainability Lead.
