Linux clusters deployed on-premise and Linux clusters in the cloud each offer advantages and disadvantages leading many organizations to pursue a hybrid approach that includes both. Building an effective hybrid cluster involves the daunting task of building the on-premise cluster and then enabling that cluster to seamlessly extend to the public cloud for additional resources when needed. Given the latency between on-premise and cloud, the goal should be to have a cluster with resources in your datacenter and in the cloud – each servicing local workloads – yet centrally managed as a single logical entity. Administratively combining these different and disparate environments is incredibly complex and can lead to costly consequences if cloud resources are not provisioned and terminated in a timely manner. Bright software automates the process of building and managing your Linux cluster, and also automates the process of extending your on-premise cluster to the public cloud. After building and deploying your on-premise cluster, a wizard guides you through the process of enabling your cluster to extend to either AWS or Azure for additional resources.
