Overview

Building and managing high-performance Linux clusters for HPC applications is no easy task. With hundreds or thousands of hardware and software elements that must work in unison spanning compute, networking and storage, the skills, knowledge and experience required to do this is often more than an organization can cope with. Bright Cluster Manager software offers an integrated solution for building and managing HPC clusters that reduces complexity, accelerates time to value and provides enormous flexibility.
