Monday, May 15, 2017 – San Jose, CA - Bright Computing, a global leader in cluster and cloud infrastructure automation software, will be exhibiting and presenting at Bio-IT World 2017, taking place May 23-25 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, MA. Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, Bio-IT World is the premier event showcasing IT and informatics applications and enabling technologies that drive biomedical research, drug discovery and development, and clinical and healthcare initiatives.

Today more than ever, advances in health, life sciences, and pharmaceuticals depend on the ability to run massive computations and interpret rich data sets across a clustered IT infrastructure. To achieve new breakthroughs in all health-related fields, today’s scientific and research teams must be equally adept in computer science and biological science.

The Bright Computing vendor presentation “Dynamic Data Center: Clustered Infrastructure in Life Sciences”, will explain how Bright software automates the deployment, monitoring and management of various types of clustered workloads on-premises and in the cloud - for HPC, Big Data, Machine Learning, and OpenStack applications.

At the event, Bright Computing will demonstrate how to automate the deployment, monitoring and management of HPC and Big Data environments to speed time to results for life science applications. Bright Booth 519 will also showcase some of the features and enhancements from the May 9 release of Bright Cluster Manager™ and Bright OpenStack™ 8.0.

Bright Computing demonstrations will include key updates in the 8.0 release including:

  • A new Web-based administrator interface – that operates well on any web-based device, including a tablet
  • A new monitoring subsystem – with a simplified and more sophisticated configuration that provides powerful metric collectors and more flexibility
  • Integration to Microsoft Azure – to create virtual clusters and the ability to extend an on-premises cluster
  • Support for OpenStack Newton – with improved logging of OpenStack events, performance improvements, and Ironic support for deployment of instances on bare metal
  • Integration with Mesos and Marathon – to allow cloud native workloads to be deployed on Bright clusters
