San Jose, California — Bright Computing, a leader in cluster management software, today announced that the company is now shipping Bright Cluster Manager® release 5.2. This latest version of the product includes multiple new features and a broad range of expanded capabilities for managing HPC clusters. These capabilities include enhanced multi-cluster support, full CUDA 4.0 support for NVIDIA GPUs, tightly integrated support for on-demand SMP, additional options for integrated workload management, support for the latest releases of Linux distributions, cluster reliability improvement and an enhanced web-based user portal.
Bright Cluster Manager continues to lead the industry in both removing complexity from cluster management and in providing advanced capabilities for improving operating efficiencies. For example, Bright Computing has enhanced its unique multi-cluster support beyond its ability to easily monitor and manage multiple clusters from a single GUI or CLI. Bright Cluster Manager 5.2 enables any cluster settings, including monitoring rules, health checks, user information and access roles, to be exported from one cluster to one or more other clusters. This new feature greatly reduces the complexity of managing multiple clusters and delivers operational efficiencies in geographically distributed data centers.
Other enhancements include:
“Bright Cluster Manager 5.2 is the latest milestone in our continued leadership of cluster management innovation, anticipating and delivering on the evolving needs of our customers and partners,” said Martijn de Vries, CTO of Bright Computing. “We’ve enjoyed an enthusiastic response from our customers who are using our new release. Our partners have already won some major Bright deals as a direct result of the new features, including the recently announced TOP500 system at the University of Bordeaux.”
