As scientists, we always are time constrained. Our priority is our research, not managing our clusters. Bright is intuitive to use and, with it, I can effectively manage my cluster without wasting time writing scripts, or synchronizing management tool revisions. Provisioning is fast and easy. I prefer this approach over open-source toolkits.
Bright’s use of open standards, availability of a rich API, plus ability to support customized HPC configurations, makes for a natural fit in our IaaS platform.
