Manage Your Clusters by Category


By Lionel Gibbons | August 24, 2016 | Cluster Manager




Everyone knows how important it is to be organized. There are books, magazines, and entire websites devoted to the topic. Googling the phrase, “getting organized,” returns over 15 million results preaching the benefits of reducing the clutter in your home, your office, or your computer’s hard drive. But what about your cluster?

Modern clusters typically contain many server types that may be running running different images, and playing different roles. Staying on top of each one can be a challenge, particularly in a large cluster.

It can be helpful to think of the various components of your cluster by category. That is, groups of nodes that share the same configuration. For example, “OpenStack Nodes,” or “Storage Nodes.”  Categorizing things this way helps keep your cluster in order, and makes it easier to manage efficiently.

Bright Cluster Manager lets you create categories and manage the items in a given category as a group. Watch this demo video to see how helpful that can be.
