JRTI to sell Bright Cluster Manager with high performance CPU and GPU clusters
SAN JOSE, Calif., and RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 28 -- Bright Computing, a leader in cluster management software and services for high-performance computing (HPC), and James River Technical, Inc (JRTI), specialists in accelerated and HPC solutions for the higher education and research, government and commercial market segments, have entered into a reseller agreement allowing JRTI to sell Bright Cluster Manager throughout North America. JRTI will offer Bright Cluster Manager on new and existing clusters, together with its installation, support and management services.
JRTI sells HPC solutions from Cray, Dell, NVIDIA and others, as well as their own custom hardware platforms. JRTI also provides a wide range of visualization solutions.
"Bright Cluster Manager offers our clients a uniquely simple and comprehensive cluster management tool, providing a faster, easier solution for their cluster management needs," said Jeff Fettig, vice president of sales and marketing for JRTI. "Whether laying over an existing collection of tightly integrated or highly disparate cluster nodes, or pursuing a leading edge heterogeneous Tesla based GPU cluster solution, Bright Cluster Manager takes the focus off building and managing clusters, and gets our clients' systems into productivity much more rapidly."
"JRTI delivers an impressive range of HPC platforms and visualization products," said Dr. Matthijs van Leeuwen, CEO of Bright Computing. "Bright Cluster Manager is a strong fit with their offerings and with their emphasis on providing an integrated, end-to-end solution that best meets the needs of their clients. Using Bright Cluster Manager, JRTI's customers benefit from easy-to-use and extremely efficient GPU cluster management, with a single daemon driving all of the functionality required to keep the clusters running smoothly. Their clients will get the most computing from their investment, with far less effort."
JRTI will feature Bright Cluster Manager in a free webinar on November 10th: "Eliminating Complexity in Managing GPU Clusters." For more information, click here.

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
