Realize the Massive Potential of your AI Infrastructure

By Tim Ranagan | July 03, 2019

With an ever-expanding array of future-focused use-cases and solutions, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has rapidly become an essential business and research tool for enterprise, academic, and government end-users. Organizations everywhere are investing incredible amounts of resources into the development of these solutions, and while these AI capabilities are proving to add significant value to our lives, they are also proving to be some of the most demanding workloads in modern computing history. It should come as no surprise that the high-performance computing (HPC) clusters required to run AI workloads place significant strain on traditional (and in some cases “legacy”) IT infrastructure, as businesses struggle to keep pace with ever-expanding sets of hot and warm data.

Managing Linux Clusters: Everything old is new again

By Bill Wagner | June 11, 2019

It’s becoming clearer every day that the world is racing towards a state of constant, insatiable need for more and more computing power to make sense of the growing sea of data all around us – and we’ve barely scratched the surface.  Just wait until IoT and machine learning kick into high gear.  Not surprisingly, Linux clusters – in various evolving forms – continue to be the preferred approach for providing the computing horsepower to tackle these jobs, yet Linux clusters are notoriously complex and difficult to manage.  For this reason, Bright Computing commissioned a market survey through Hyperion Research to understand how organizations are grappling with the challenges of Linux clusters in the face of growing demand.
