Modernized HPC infrastructure delivers more services to larger end-user communities for less cost
At the heart of NIPM’s supercomputer is Bright Cluster Manager, providing single- pane-of-glass management for the hardware, the operating system, a mixture of open source HPC software, and users.
CHPC embarked on a multi-year project to upgrade its entire HPC environment. Their existing estate, comprising four HPC clusters with a combined compute power of approximately 114 Teraflops, were to be enhanced with the edition of a new peta-scale supercomputer.
The Met Office is a world leading weather forecasting and climate prediction organization that conducts research designed to protect lives and increase prosperity. The institution’s 500 scientists conduct research using data-intensive, high-resolution models to increase forecast accuracy and provide a deeper understanding of climate change.
The largest use of Univerity of Leicester's HPC service comes from the Science and Engineering departments, but there is significant use in other areas such as Economics, Health Sciences, Genetics, and Cardiovascular Science. Learn why the university selected Bright to manage its campus-wide HPC service.
This European electronics company has been a long-term user of Bright Cluster Manager, having started with a modest 4 node HPC cluster back in 2013. With hundreds of nodes now in production, Bright is working closely with the company to drive innovation and agility by leveraging Bright’s Big Data and Bright OpenStack solutions.
A Research Fellow from the University of Exeter’s campus in Penryn approached Bright to discuss planning and re-vamping an old cluster within their college. This old cluster comprised of a mixed variety of servers and hardware, at all stages of lifecycle.
By selecting Bright’s HPC infrastructure management technology, EURO/CFD benefitted immediately from Bright Cluster Manager’s advanced configuration and automation, which enabled the installation and deployment of the new Linux environment to be rapid and pain free.
Dana Holding Corporation is an American worldwide supplier of driveline, sealing, and thermal-management technologies for passenger vehicle, commercial truck, and off-highway equipment markets. The Ohio-based automotive supplier is on a mission to innovate – with a focus on developing advanced designs for driveline, sealing, and thermal-management products.
The Computational Chemistry Research Group is part of Scuola Normale Superiore and is led by Professor Vincenzo Barone. The HPC environment that runs the Computational Chemistry Research Group’s projects is complex, with over 100 servers and multiple architectures. This case study discusses how a team of three people manage it; taking care of installation, management and maintenance.
