Bright Computing and Intel

Bright Cluster Manager is now integrated with the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre (IEEL) software.

The enhancements offer significant value by making Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre configuration and setup easy, while also reducing the ongoing administrative burden through proactive diagnostics based on Lustre-specific metrics and tests, for example.

The integration is particularly compelling in establishing a unique solution that works for HPC, Big Data Analytics, or a hybrid environment. By replacing HDFS with Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre, as the native file system for both HPC and Big Data Analytics, the extremely appealing result is a single file system for HPC, Hadoop and Spark clusters.

Bright Computing, already Intel Cluster Ready compliant, has won a number of Intel Cluster Ready awards over the years. Bright Computing also provides support for Intel Xeon Phi, including native and offload modes, is part of Intel's Fabric Builders for Omnipath, and offers a comprehensive suite of software packages for developers, including Intel Compilers, Intel MKL and Intel MPI.
