Bright Computing at SC15

At the 2015 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC15), in Austin, Texas, Bright Computing was recognized in the annual HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards. Bright Computing’s Cluster Manager for HPC was named the Editors’ Choice for Best HPC Cluster Solution or Technology.

The annual HPCwire Readers’ and Editors Choice Awards are determined through a nomination and voting process with the global HPCwire community, as well as selections from the HPCwire editors. The awards are an annual feature of the publication and constitute prestigious recognition from the HPC community. These awards are revealed each year to kick off the annual supercomputing conference, which showcases high performance computing, networking, storage, and data analysis.

Also at SC15, Bright Computing announced their release of Version 7.2 of their Cluster Manager Software solutions in January 2016. This includes Bright Cluster Manager for HPC, Bright Cluster Manager for Big Data, and Bright OpenStack. The updates will include more than a dozen features that simplify OpenStack deployment, add built-in integration functionality, and greatly improve Big Data integration, including support for the latest releases from Apache, Cloudera, and Hortonworks. Among other enhancements, the updates to Version 7.2 include improved integration with Puppet to simplify fine-grained control over individual nodes, ZFS support to provide a robust alternative to BtrFS for software image revision control, support for Intel Omni-Path, and integration with Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenStack Liberty.
