Today Bright Computing announced a reseller agreement with SGI, a global leader in high-performance solutions for compute, data analytics and data management. Bright’s cluster management software is compatible with SGI ICE X and XA systems, and SGI Rackable systems.
SGI and Bright Computing have been working together for the last year to provide our joint customers with enterprise level clustered infrastructure management software for production supercomputing,” said Gabriel Broner, vice president and general manager of HPC, SGI. “By partnering with Bright Computing, our customers are able to select the cluster management tool that best suits their needs.”
Deploying Bright Cluster Manager on SGI supercomputers unlocks many benefits for users, including increased utilization due to health checks, reduced TCO, and single pane of glass management for a multivendor data center. A set of convenient SGI integration scripts allow users to easily install the Bright software on the SGI ICE X admin node or SGI Rackable head node out of the box and run scripts that use auto discovery to find and configure each blade, chassis and rack.
“SGI is a highly respected technology leader and we share many common customers,” added Rick Hill, VP Worldwide Channel Sales at Bright Computing. “We are delighted to formally collaborate with SGI to enable these customers to seamlessly integrate SGI supercomputers with Bright infrastructure management technology. With Bright, SGI customers will be able to deploy the most comprehensive and effective infrastructure management for the modern dynamic data center.”
