Computerome – A Life Sciences Supercomputer of National Significance, Underpinned by Bright



The Center for Biological Sequence Analysis (CBS) comprises a team of more than 90 scientists in Denmark, who carry out research in the field of bioinformatics.

In 2014, the systems management team at CBS set about upgrading its supercomputer to cater for increasingly sophisticated requirements in high performance computing. A key requirement was for a sophisticated infrastructure management platform to automate the day-to-day administration of the powerful supercomputer.

The team evaluated a number of competing cluster management software solutions, and after a detailed analysis, chose Bright technology as it was the most effective at managing the cluster with as little human intervention as possible.
