Bright Computing on board for Intel Xeon Phi Support at SC12

Bright Computing today announced that it will be demonstrating full support for the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors at the SC1 conference in Salt Lake City. Based on Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture, this new technology speeds up highly parallel technical applications while leveraging existing programming tools and methods.

We package everything that’s necessary to get the Intel Xeon Phi to work,” said Martijn de Vries, CTO at Bright Computing. “For starters, we put together the driver, runtime, SDK, OFED and flash utilities in easy-to-install packages. Our environment modules ensure that the user environment is set up perfectly. The driver recompiles automatically against the running kernel at boot-time. Bright’s intuitive set-up wizard takes care of the initial Intel Xeon Phi configuration, such as creating bridge interfaces, assigning IP addresses, etc. It’s fast and easy.”

With Bright, the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors can be easily configured, controlled and monitored through the Bright Cluster Management Shell, CMGUI and APIs. Bright automatically adds Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors to the workload management system as a resource, enabling compute jobs to request them.
