By Bright Staff | February 21, 2020 | Bright Cluster Manager, Bright Computing



This week, Bright announced the addition of more than 100 organizations to its client list in 2019. This new clientele list includes companies such as AMD, Caterpillar, Saab, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Samsung, Lockheed Martin, along with 19 government agencies and 28 leading universities.

It should come as no surprise that high-performance computing (HPC) is undergoing a significant change, one that is placing new demands on Linux clusters and making the task of building and managing clusters more complex than ever before. Some of these changes include new machine learning applications, new processors and accelerators, extending clusters to the public cloud and the edge, and the need to run applications on a combination of bare metal, VMs, and containers.

With so much hardware diversity and workload complexity, static and homogeneous HPC clusters are a thing of the past.  When you add to this the urgency that organizations have in getting systems deployed for a variety of HPC use cases, the need to maintain IT flexibility quickly becomes a top priority, and the notion of do-it-yourself cluster management is not only highly impractical but extremely risky.

Bright Cluster Manager automates the process of building and managing clusters that combine different processors and vendor hardware, span from core to cloud to edge and offer bare metal, VMs, and containers in the same centrally managed cluster. Bright efficiently addresses these challenges and is enabling the next generation of HPC.
