San Jose, California — San Jose, California – Bright Computing today announced that the company will present at the Cray User Group conference beginning Sunday, 29 April in Stuttgart, Germany. Matthijs van Leeuwen, CEO, will team up with Martijn de Vries, CTO, to discuss how Bright Cluster Manager® provides system administrators with a comprehensive view of Cray HPC systems, manage these resources, and extend their reach into the Amazon EC2 cloud. The audience will hear how Bright increases system throughput while reducing the need for human intervention, freeing system administrators to work on other priorities.

Bright Cluster Manager provides comprehensive cluster management in one integrated solution, spanning deployment, provisioning, scheduling, monitoring, and management. Its intuitive GUI provides complete system visibility and ease of use for multiple clusters simultaneously, including automated tasks and intervention. Bright also provides a powerful cluster management shell for those who prefer to manage via a command-line interface.

Bright includes advanced cluster management capabilities that are of particular interest to Cray’s customers, including image-based provisioning, built-in redundancy via automatic failover, support for diskless nodes and proven scalability to TOP500 class configurations.

Bright Computing and Cray have a longstanding partnership. Cray uses Bright Cluster Manager for its external servers (large-scale Lustre file systems, login servers, data movers, pre- and post-processing servers), and Cray storage solutions. Cray has also used Bright Cluster Manager to create additional services for its customers.
