On November 19th at the Supercomputing Conference in Denver, Bright Computing announced a free version of Bright Cluster Manager software for clusters up to 8 nodes, which we’re referring to as “Easy8”. This is the same award-winning, full-featured Bright product in use by thousands of organizations, with free support provided by Bright’s newly launched “BEACON” user community.
We chose this moment in time to launch Easy8 for several reasons:
Perhaps above all of this is the fact that urgency to deploy high-performance clusters to quickly reap the competitive advantages they can afford has never been greater. In the mounting arms race for A.I. and digital supremacy, the old business adage of “time is money” is being replaced with “time is life or death” for businesses. The notion of taking the time and effort to cobble together scripts and disparate open source tools into a fragile cluster management system that adds no strategic value to your business is a dated and dangerous mindset in today’s world.
By making Bright Cluster Manager available to every organization on the planet free of charge for up to 8 nodes, we’re giving everyone the opportunity to use it and see for themselves what it can do for their business. And while clusters of 8 or fewer nodes will be more than enough for many organizations today (e.g., imagine what a cluster of 8 NVIDIA DGX servers is capable of), we believe that organizations will want to use Bright Cluster Manager for larger clusters as their needs increase.
