Bright and Dell EMC – Setting the Stage for SC18


By Grant Gustafson | November 09, 2018 | HPC, deep learning, AI, data science



With SC 18 in Dallas just a few days away, I thought I’d write a brief blog post to give our community an update on how Dell EMC and Bright are collaborating at the supercomputing industry’s largest event of the year.

Dell EMC HPC Community Meeting

Dell EMC is hosting a networking reception on Sunday, November 11, 6:30pm-9:30pm at the Reunion Tower, 300 Reunion Blvd. This will be a great opportunity for Dell EMC customers and partners to get together before SC begins. Bright will be there, and we hope to see you too.

On Monday, November 12, the Dell EMC HPC Community Meeting takes place from 8am to 2pm at the Fairmont Dallas. The event will feature keynote presentations from HPC experts which include Bright and Dell EMC customers, so we hope you can join us at what is always a highly interactive and educational event. Contact us to set up a meeting at this event, or visit the site to register.


Dell EMC has great plans for SC18. You can visit their booth #3218 to hear the latest on their AI and HPC strategy and learn more about the Dell EMC Ready Solutions. I’m delighted to say that Robert Stober, Director of Product Management at Bright Computing has been invited to present at the Dell EMC theater, booth #3218, on Wednesday November 14, at 12 noon. Robert will talk about "Dell and Bright - Infrastructure Solutions for AI".

We are really pleased that Adnan Khaleel, Global Strategist, HPC, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at Dell EMC, has once again agreed to present at the Bright booth #3025, on Tuesday, November 13 at 4pm. Adnan will take “A Look at Dell EMC’s Solutions for AI.” Everyone who attends Adnan’s session will receive a famous Bright t-shirt.

With our booths situated so close together, and with so many joint customers attending SC18, I look forward to a busy and collaborative few days with the Dell EMC team. I hope you can join us at the event. To book a meeting with me at SC18, please send an email.

Beers on Bright

We invite our Dell EMC colleagues and all Bright / Dell EMC customers to join us at the annual Beers on Bright, taking place on Tuesday, November 13, 5-7pm at WXYZ Bar, Aloft Hotel, 1033 Young St, Dallas. This is a great opportunity to unwind from a busy day at the conference, enjoy a beer on Bright, and hang out with Bright at SC18. Just a short walk from the convention center, take the opportunity to meet our executive and technical teams, network with other customers and partners, and get the latest news from Bright.
