Bright Computing Cluster as a Service for VMware

This whitepaper, “Bright Computing Cluster as a Service for VMware,” from Bright Computing discusses how through advanced automation, Bright Cluster Manager eliminates the complexity of building and managing high-performance Linux clusters, enabling greater organizational efficiency and flexibility. And now, Bright Cluster Manager also supports clusters in VMware vSphere—and goes one step further to enable high-performance […]

ASC 2021 Student Cluster Competition:  Wrap Up

The final awards were handed out at the ASC20-21 Student Cluster Competition and what a competition it was! This was really a dual event this year, with a set of 21 teams working out of a stadium at Southern University of Science & Technology (SUSTech) in Shenzhen, China, and seven additional teams working on AWS cloud clusters from their home countries. Both sets of teams ran the same applications during the same time period. The applications were very challenging, ranging from natural language processing to astrophysics to quantum computing simulation. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the applications.

Energy Efficiency Comparison: Air-Cooling vs Liquid Cooling

In this sponsored article, David Craig, CEO of Iceotope, discusses how a paradigm shift, from air to liquid cooling has become the favoured solution – already the standard for high performance computing (HPC). The discussion for all workloads has moved on from whether to stick with traditional air-cooling systems to one of how to practically evolve to precision immersion liquid-cooling.
