A successful HPC cluster is a powerful asset for an organization. The following essential strategies are guidelines for the effective operation of an HPC cluster resource:

  1. Plan To Manage the Cost of Software Complexity
  2. Plan for Scalable Growth
  3. Plan to Manage Heterogeneous Hardware/Software Solutions
  4. Be Ready for the Cloud
  5. Have an answer for the Big Data/Hadoop Question
A commercial cluster management platform like Bright Cluster Manager addresses the above strategies remarkably well and allows HPC and Big Data clusters to be easily created, monitored, and maintained using a single comprehensive user interface. Administrators can focus on more sophisticated, value-adding tasks rather than developing homegrown solutions that may cause problems as clusters grow and change. The end result is an efficient and successful HPC cluster that maximizes user productivity.
