Bright Computing Sponsored the Rice Oil and Gas Conference


By Bright Staff | March 17, 2017 | Bright Cluster Manager



Bright Computing sponsored the Oil and Gas High-Performance Computing Conference hosted by Rice University in Houston, TX earlier this week. The Rice Oil and Gas event is the premier meeting place for networking and discussion focused on computing and information technology challenges in the oil and gas industry. It was an excellent event—Rice University sure knows how to put on a show.

We demonstrated Bright Cluster Manager for HPC, showing conference goers how easy it can be to deploy and manage the high-performance computing and big data IT infrastructures that underpin petroleum exploration.

We had great discussions with industry experts and learned of the many challenges oil and gas IT organizations face. Bright solves many of these challenges by enabling our customers to deploy and manage clustered systems for high-performance computing and big data workloads using Bright Cluster Manager. Bright’s platform makes it easy for IT organizations to deliver the computing resources and support that engineers, scientists, and researchers need so they’re free to focus on identifying and accessing energy sources. Whether standing up a high-performance computing cluster, managing a Hadoop-based big data environment, or deploying OpenStack to manage resources more effectively, IT organizations in the energy sector are leveraging Bright as the unified management platform.
