Bright Cluster Manager 7

Bright Cluster Manager for HPC lets customers deploy complete HPC clusters on bare metal and manage them effectively. It provides single-pane-of-glass management for the hardware, operating system, HPC software, and users. With Bright Cluster Manager for HPC, system administrators can get their clusters up and running quickly and keep them running reliably throughout their life cycle – all with the ease and elegance of a fully featured, enterprise-grade cluster manager.

With the latest release, we've added some great new features that make Bright Cluster Manager for HPC even more powerful. 

New Feature Highlights

Image Revision Control – We've added revision control capability which means you can track changes to software images using standardized methods.

Integrated Cisco UCS Support – With the new integrated support for Cisco UCS rack servers, you can rapidly introduce flexible, multiplexed servers into your HPC environment.

Native AWS Storage Service Support – Bright Cluster Manager 7 now supports native AWS storage which means that you can use inexpensive, secure, durable, flexible and simple storage services for data use, archiving and backup in the AWS cloud.

Intelligent Dynamic Cloud Provisioning – By only instantiating compute resources in AWS when they're actually needed – such as after the data to be processed has been uploaded, or when on-site workloads reach a certain threshold – Bright Cluster Manager 7 can save you money.
