The sophisticated node provisioning and image management system in Bright Cluster Manager® allows you to do the following:
Bright Cluster Manager Advanced Edition expands these capabilities to very large clusters, by using multiple, load-balanced provisioning nodes that can share load and take over from each other in case of hardware failure.
The cluster management daemon (CMDaemon) plays a central role in the coordination of the node provisioning process. It ensures that all required information is available to the head node and regular nodes, and that all required steps are taken in the correct order. It also takes corrective action if something goes wrong in the provisioning process.
