Today Bright Computing announced that the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory’s Research Center for Galaxy and Cosmology (CGC) is using the company’s software to manage its HPC clusters. Since CGC astronomers and scientists manage their own clusters without the support of an IT team, Bright Cluster Manager was ideal because it offers a single, integrated solution that minimizes the complexity of deploying, scheduling, monitoring and managing HPC systems.
Our computational team focuses on developing numerical simulations using HPC computing, while our observational team gathers a tremendous amount of data from both spaced-based and land-based telescopes,” said Professor Weipeng Lin, Associate Director at the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory’s Research Center for Galaxy and Cosmology. “Bright helps us manage our cluster with much less effort, so that we can concentrate on our investigation to better understand the formation and evolution of cosmic structures by comparing computational simulations with observational data.”
