Commercial enterprises, research universities and government agencies are turning to Bright Cluster Manager to reduce complexity and increase flexibility of their high-performance clusters. Along these lines, the company just announced the addition of more than 100 organizations to its client list in 2019, including AMD, Caterpillar, GlaxoSmithKline, Saab, Northrop Grumman, Trek Bicycles, Samsung, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin and BAE, as well as 19 government agencies and 28 leading universities.

High-performance computing is undergoing a significant change that’s putting new demands on Linux clusters, making the task of building and managing clusters more complex than ever before. New machine learning applications, new processors and accelerators, extending clusters to the public cloud, and to the edge and the need to run applications on a combination of bare metal, VMs and containers is a far cry from the static and homogeneous HPC clusters of the past. Bright Cluster Manager automates the process of building and managing clusters that combine different processors and vendor hardware, span from core to cloud to edge and offer bare metal, VMs, and containers in the same centrally managed cluster.

Cluster complexity has always been an issue in high-performance computing, but all of the new requirements and opportunities increase that complexity exponentially,” said Dan Kuczkowski, Senior Vice President of Sales at Bright Computing. “When you add to this the urgency that organizations have in getting systems deployed for A.I. and the need to maintain IT flexibility, the notion of do-it-yourself cluster management quickly becomes not only impractical but very risky. Bright Cluster Manager addresses these challenges and is enabling the next-generation of high-performance computing.”

Bright Cluster Manager software is available from leading server manufacturers, including DellEMC, Cray, Fujitsu, HPE, Huawei, Atos, and others. Bright also offers a free version of Bright Cluster Manager for clusters up to 8 nodes, with support provided by the Bright BEACON user community.
