Installation on Bare Metal

Bright Cluster Manager installs on bare metal without the need for additional software - even for the operating system. Software compatibility is therefore guaranteed.

The Bright Cluster Manager Installer spins up all infrastructure components you may require, including your chosen distribution of Linux, Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark, and OpenStack. Installation on top of an existing Linux installation is possible in certain circumstances. Contact us if you need this.

Multiple Installation Methods

Bright Cluster Manager offers a choice of installation methods for maximum flexibility and efficiency. All methods start with the booting of the head node from the Bright Cluster Manager DVD. This loads the installation welcome screen (see screenshot), from which three different installation options are available.
