Bright Computing announced that Cray will offer their CX1 and CX1000 systems with the Bright Cluster Manager management stack. The systems can be purchased directly from Cray or from one of the several CX-series resellers.
Using Bright Cluster Manager is a completely different experience from using the open source cluster management solutions that you can download off the web. Its GUI is very intuitive to use and offers all functionality I need as an administrator on a day-to-day basis,” says Erik Smeets, Systems Administrator at the Technical University of Eindhoven.
Our vision for the Cray CX line of supercomputers has always been focused on expanding the customer base of HPC users by designing and delivering a product based on the tenets of ease-of-use computing,” says Ian Miller, Senior Vice President of the Productivity Solutions Group and Marketing at Cray. “Bright Cluster Manager manages cluster computing systems in a simple and intuitive way that reinforces our goal for the Cray CX line, and we are excited to offer Bright’s cluster management solution to Cray customers through our expansive network of resellers.”
If you’re interested in hearing more about the new integration, Bright Computing and Cray will hold a webinar on Wednesday May 19th to go over all the juicy details.
