This week Bright Computing announced that the company’s Cluster Manager software is being on Drexel’s most powerful supercomputer — freeing scientists to focus on leading-edge cosmology research instead of managing their complex GPU-based system. The Drexel system is capable of delivering 176,514 GFLOPS of GPU performance, thanks to 68,352 NVIDIA GPU cores and 48 TB RAID disk storage.
Bright Cluster Manager was a good choice for us,” stated Dr. Steve McMillan. “I’m a scientist, not a system manager. The Bright GUI is intuitive and extremely easy to use. I can do everything I need to do on the system remotely — I almost never visit our cluster. I get alerts when attention is required, and am able to hand off much of the overall system management with confidence to an enthusiastic undergraduate.”
