How To Configure Bright Auto-Scaler to Achieve True Convergence of HPC and AI

By Robert Stober | September 17, 2019

Auto-scaling HPC and Kubernetes

Bright CEO Bill Wagner’s recent blog post “The Convergence of HPC and A.I.” pointed out that creating HPC and Kubernetes silos within a shared HPC infrastructure is more like “coexistence than convergence”. The solution I will be highlighting  is Bright Auto-scaler, which automatically resizes HPC and Kubernetes clusters (workload engines) according to workload demand and configured policies. This post describes how to configure Bright Auto-scaler to achieve true convergence of HPC and A.I. through a scenario.

The Convergence of HPC and A.I.

By Bill Wagner | July 31, 2019

The convergence of HPC & A.I. is a hot topic right now, and for good reasons.  In practice, there is a symbiotic relationship between (for example) HPC simulations and machine learning.  HPC simulations generate tons of data, and as luck would have it, machine learning requires tons of data to train models.  If we turn the value proposition around, the quality and effectiveness of HPC simulations can be improved if we use machine learning to identify the parameters in simulation data that have a significant effect on the outcome and focus subsequent iterations of simulation on those parameters.

High efficiency HPC cluster management: Beginner to Expert

By Lionel Gibbons | July 10, 2018

 

Big Picture Efficiency

Efficiency as a business concept approaches an almost revered status for IT admins and bean counters alike. In an HPC (High Performance Computing) environment, cluster performance for discrete tasks represents the majority of actual work done efficiency, but most major HPC cluster providers remain fairly price competitive in the pay for processing market.
