Bright Computing has announced that Sandia National Labs has purchased their Bright Cluster Manager as a part of a new Cray CX-1 deskside cluster installation. The package deal will be delivered through SiCorp, a Bright Computing reseller in New Mexico.
Principal Member of the Technical Staff and computer scientist at Sandia, James H. Laros III, comments: “We are using several clusters of different size, architecture and complexity, and they are essential tools for our research. We require a cluster management solution that provides the flexibility to accomplish our diverse requirements, spanning from production to research and development.”
SICORP’s choice for cluster management is Bright Cluster Manager,” says SICORP Business Development Manager Craig Hendren. “A reliable and light-weight daemon, dynamic role-setting, and the ease of provisioning clusters are all key factors for us when we integrate clusters for our clients. The developers at Bright Computing have included all of the necessary functionality as well as many nice-to-have features for managing, scaling, monitoring, and supporting clusters.”
