Bright Computing to Present "Extending HPC Clusters into the Cloud" at ISC'12
Bright CTO Martijn de Vries will demonstrate how Amazon EC2 nodes can be accessed, provisioned, scheduled, monitored and managed as part of on-premise HPC clusters
San Jose, California
Bright Computing today announced that Martijn de Vries, Bright Computing CTO, will present a powerful approach to extending on-premise HPC clusters into EC2. The demonstration will step the audience through the few mouse clicks to open an EC2 session and then show how cloud-based CPUs and GPUs are provisioned, scheduled, monitored and managed as part of the on-premise cluster, using Bright Cluster Manager®. The discussion will include networking outside of the firewall, seamless GPU management, data-aware scheduling and cost containment; key capabilities that are particularly useful for running HPC applications in the cloud.
Martijn will also demonstrate how to create— with only a few mouse clicks— an entirely new HPC cluster in Amazon EC2, fully managed within the Bright Cluster Manager GUI and cluster management shell.
“Customer demand for HPC management solutions that include cloud-based computing has risen dramatically this year,” said de Vries. “We’re seeing particularly strong interest in our data-aware scheduling for the cloud— a capability that only Bright offers.”
The presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, June 19 from 3:45 PM to 4:30 PM at hall C2.1 at the Congress Center Hamburg.
About Bright Computing
Bright Computing specializes in management software for on-premise HPC, Hadoop, storage, database and workstation clusters, as well as the seamless extension of these clusters into the cloud. Its flagship product — Bright Cluster Manager — with its intuitive graphical user interface and powerful cluster management shell, makes clusters of any size easy to install, use and manage, including systems combining processors with accelerators (e.g., NVIDIA GPUs) or coprocessors (e.g., Intel Xeon Phi). Bright's minimal footprint enables systems to be utilized to their maximum potential, from departmental Hadoop clusters to large-scale supercomputers. Bright Computing partners include Amazon, Cisco, Cray and Dell, while Boeing, ING Bank, NASA, Roche, Saudi Aramco plus Stanford University and Tokyo Institute of Technology are examples of Bright customers. Bright Computing is a Red Herring 2013 Top 100 North America Award winner, and Bright Cluster Manager was a "Best of Show Award" winner at Bio-IT World 2013.
