bright-cluster-manager-standardThis week at SC14, Bright Computing announced support for the new NVIDIA Tesla K80 dual-GPU accelerator. This adds the latest technology from NVIDIA to the list of GPUs Bright Cluster Manager has been preparing, monitoring and regulating since 2010. The new capability is available immediately.

Bright Cluster Manager now collects metrics (including health checks) specific to the NVIDIA Tesla K80 dual-GPU accelerator. Bright’s Cluster Management GUI (CMGUI) provides direct access to the most recent NVIDIA GPU Boost technology by setting clock speeds for individual GPUs as well as for logical or physical groups of GPUs. Bright’s support for CUDA 6.5 is available for the NVIDIA Tesla K80 accelerator right now.

Bright Computing has a strong track record of supporting the latest developments in GPU hardware and software,” said Duncan Poole, strategic alliances manager for Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. “Bright Computing customers have had access to CUDA 6.5 for over two months. Now they can use this latest release of the toolkit with the newly available NVIDIA Tesla K80 dual-GPU accelerator.”

The Tesla K80 dual-GPU, the new flagship of the Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform, provides hardware, software and an extensive supported ecosystem for GPU-accelerated applications in the data center. It delivers nearly two times higher performance and doubles the memory bandwidth of its predecessor and offers 10X  higher performance than today’s fastest CPU on hundreds of applications.
