SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA — Bright Computing, a specialist in cluster management software and services for high-performance computing (HPC), was launched today to offer a fundamentally new approach to the technical challenges posed by HPC cluster management. Its innovative software product — Bright Cluster Manager® — makes HPC Linux clusters of any size easy to use, manage and scale.

"Our latest studies on HPC end-user requirements have shown that software has become the number one road block due to the growing complexity and shifting server technologies, and users still find clusters hard to use and manage," says Earl Joseph, IDC HPC Program Vice President. Bright Cluster Manager® solves this challenge and fulfills the following goals:

  1. Make clusters really easyBright Cluster Manager® makes Linux clusters of any size really easy to install, manage and use.
  2. Scale clusters to thousands of nodesBright Cluster Manager® was designed to scale to thousands of nodes. Its Advanced Edition includes many features for managing very large and complex clusters.
  3. Be completeBright Cluster Manager® is complete. It includes everything a user or administrator would expect from a professional cluster management software stack.

Bright Cluster Manager® was developed over many years by Europe's most successful HPC cluster company, ClusterVision. ClusterVision engineers have installed it under its previous name, ClusterVisionOS, on hundreds of clusters — including several TOP500 clusters — across Europe, the Middle-East and Africa. Customers include universities such as Cambridge and Oxford; research laboratories such as the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and the Max-Planck Institute (MPI); as well as companies such as Schering-Plough and CD-adapco.

Bright Computing is an independent company that offers its products and services through authorized resellers across the world. Its head office is in San Jose, California, USA.
