Phoenix Analysis & Design Technologies (PADT) established a new Cores on Demand infrastructure as a service (IAAS) product offering in response to its customers’ need for a more affordable way to gain access to the compute power needed for these massive modeling efforts. This case study describes why PADT chose Bright Cluster Manager to manage this service.
Van Andel Institute Integrates Traditional Grid and Cluster Computing with Cloud Computing using Bright Cluster Manager
THis study describes how Bright OpenStack lets the Van Andel Institute manage both high-performance compute (HPC) grid and cluster computing and cloud computing within the same infrastructure, greatly reducing the labor and effort needed for management and change control.
Designing Materials Using GPU-based HPC Clusters at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology
This case study describes how engineering researchers at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) use Bright Cluster Manager to focus their efforts on materials science, not the management of IT infrastructure.
Virginia Bioinformatics Institute scientists use Bright Cluster Manager to achieve optimal results with their hybrid compute cluster
This case study describes how Virginia Bioinformatics Institute (VBI) scientists use Bright Cluster Manager to achieve optimal results with their hybrid compute cluster. it shows how Bright Cluster Manager allowed VBI to build out a complex hybrid compute cluster in just 5 days
International Pharmaceutical Company uses Bright Cluster Manager to Effortlessly Integrate the Cloud Into Existing IT Infrastructure
This case study describes how a large international pharmaceutical company uses Bright Cluster Manager to extend their existing IT infrastructure into the cloud. Now their cloud instances can be provisioned, monitored and managed as easily as their physical servers.
Industrial Manufacturer Consolidates Servers Into Mega Data Centers To Reduce Cost
This case study describes how a major manufacturer used Bright Cluster Manager to dramatically reduce the number of required servers and to maximize utilization of the consolidated infrastructure.
Consortium of Austrian Universities Chooses Bright to Power its Supercomputer
This case study explains why a consortium of Austrian universities chose Bright to power its supercomputer, to reduce energy consumption and empower collaboration. This study looks at how the University of Vienna, TU Vienna (TUW), the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences Vienna, the Graz University of Technology, and several universities in Austria’s southern provinces collaborated to build a 2000+ node cluster, VSC-3, using Bright Cluster Manager.
Computerome – A Life Sciences Supercomputer of National Significance, Underpinned by Bright
When the systems management team for the Center for Biological Sequence Analysis (CBS) at the Technical University of Denmark set about upgrading its supercomputer to cater for increasingly sophisticated requirements in high performance computing, they enlisted the expertise of more than 50 top researchers. They spent a year designing and testing an HPC environment that was robust enough to support the rigorous demands of Life Science research, and chose Bright Computing to manage it.
Why MARIN Continues to Choose Bright over Competing Cluster Management Technology
The Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) has a dual mission: to provide the nautical industry with innovative design solutions; and to carry out advanced research for the benefit of the sector as a whole. This study will show you how MARIN relied on Bright to expand their cluster without adding personnel, reduced the risk of downtime, and future-proof your its cluster.
A Cluster That Builds Community at the National Institute of Aeronautics
In late 2013, the National Institute of Aeronautics was tasked by the local Hampton Economic Development Authority to design, procure, deploy, and provide ongoing management for an HPC cluster that would become a shared resource for local researchers and students.
