Have you ever wanted to see what it’s like to manage a Bright cluster but didn’t want the hassle of setting up a test cluster? Well, now you can. Our dev team has put together an interactive demo of Bright View that you can try out right from your browser. Instead of connecting to an actual cluster, it uses a simulated cluster, so all you need to get started is your browser and a link to the demo.Read More >
A Single GUI for HPC Cluster Management
Whether it’s force of habit, or from actual need, users of HPC environments crave interactivity. Because the impact of unmanaged interactive sessions can be significant, there exists the potential for concern. Is it possible to meet users’ need for interactivity while managing the potential for impact? In this first part of a two-part series on managing interactive impact, attention focuses on the introduction of login nodes to a cluster managed by Bright Cluster Manager. The second part in this series will focus on use of workload managers as a complementary means for managing the interactive impact on the compute nodes of a cluster.
