Bright Computing, the leading independent provider of management software for high performance computing (HPC) clusters, big data clusters, and OpenStack clouds, announced today that they will exhibit at OpenStack Summit in Austin, TX, in booth # B13.  Visit Bright Computing anytime during exhibit hours for a personalized demonstration with the company’s technical experts.  Bright is also a co-sponsor of the Monday night Trivia Booth Crawl and Tuesday night community event.

At OpenStack Summit, Bright will demonstrate how its turnkey Bright OpenStack™ platform makes it easier than ever to deploy, manage, and monitor OpenStack from a single pane of glass.  Leveraging its ten years of experience in deploying, managing and monitoring HPC clusters, the company will also showcase how Bright OpenStack can be leveraged to spin up HPC and Big Data clusters “as a service” (CaaS) inside of an OpenStack private cloud.  

CaaS is an innovative concept that empowers end users of an OpenStack private cloud to easily create sophisticated, isolated, and secure clustered infrastructure within their private cloud. CaaS deploys a ready-to-use HPC cluster, preconfigured with all required HPC libraries (e.g. MPI, OpenMP, CUDA), compilers, workload managers (e.g. Slurm, LSF, Torque, Grid Engine) and other tools that users need to quickly start running HPC workloads.  HPC is only one application -- Bright solutions seamlessly deploy Hadoop/Spark, Ceph, OpenStack, and many other clustered environments “as-a-service”.
