San Jose, California — Bright Computing, a leading provider of management solutions for clusters and clouds, today announced support for the latest versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL 7) and Community Enterprise Operating System (CentOS 7). Full support for these operating systems is now available in Bright Cluster Manager®, enabling customers to deploy, manage, and monitor RHEL 7 clusters using the familiar Bright interface.

RHEL 7 brings a long list of new capabilities such as using systemd for service startup and management, and using XFS as the default file system allowing storage up to 500TB. It also brings a number of performance-related features such as enhancements to NUMA that optimize performance on a per-process basis by reducing cross-node communication. These enhancements will benefit any HPC or Hadoop cluster built using Bright Cluster Manager.

“RHEL 7 offers many new capabilities that our customers want to take advantage of,” said Bright Computing CTO, Martijn de Vries. “We strive to incorporate support for the latest enhancements to the operating system into Bright Cluster Manager, and now the full capability of RHEL 7 is available in Bright clusters.”

RHEL 7 and CentOS 7 support is available in the latest version of Bright Cluster Manager now. It can be obtained directly from Bright Computing, or from its extensive network of resellers and systems integrators.
