Bright and Dell EMC Collaborate on Joint Development of Machine Learning Solutions


By Grant Gustafson | March 23, 2018 | HPC, machine learning, Dell EMC



Hot on the heels of the Dell EMC HPC Community Meeting which took place earlier this week, we’re gearing up for NVIDIA GTC, March 26-29 in San Jose, and I’m pleased to say that Bright will be present on the Dell EMC booth at the event.

With so much going on between Dell EMC and Bright now, it’s set to be a great week. Bright Cluster Manager for Data Science is now an integral part of Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI, Machine and Deep Learning, and together we are focused on providing data scientists with unparalleled ease of use to accelerate the adoption of machine learning. 

Bright Cluster Manager for Data Science integrates and includes dozens of the leading machine learning frameworks and key big data platforms, enabling data scientists to focus on their work rather than their infrastructure. It also provides best-in-class management and uniquely provides deep integration with Dell EMC PowerEdge servers to simplify management and operation of Dell EMC’s Machine Learning Ready Solutions.

Bright and Dell EMC are making it faster and easier for organizations to begin using machine learning within their businesses, and just as important, automatically scale their machine learning programs as they become more sophisticated.

One such customer is Fayetteville State University, who built an image recognition system using a Dell EMC Ready Solution for HPC with Bright Computing. The system associates textual data, compares the inputs, and identifies anomalies without human intervention. This research is of relevance to defense and security applications. Sambit Bhattacharya, PhD, Professor of Computer Science at Fayetteville State University, has said; “Bright software provides a user-friendly approach to managing a cluster which is being used for machine learning, deep learning, and simulation on our campus. The complex dependencies between software and operating systems are managed by Bright with a lot of built-in automation. This allows our researchers to quickly reach the point where they can code and run the code on the cluster.”

Bright and Dell EMC have jointly tested and validated optimal settings for the Dell EMC Machine Learning Ready Bundle with NVIDIA and other cluster configurations to ensure that customers deploying Bright software with Dell EMC hardware can spend more time on the data science. This extensive testing and optimization maximizes cluster uptime and accelerates IT service delivery by automating and centralizing key functions, such as workload and infrastructure management. The Dell EMC and Bright integration benefits data analytics, high performance computing (HPC), OpenStack private clouds, and hybrid clustered environments for multiple workloads.
