The latest version of convergence – blending traditional HPC and big data computing into a ‘single’ environment – dominates much of the conversation in the HPC today, including within HPCwire. Elegant unified solutions, certainly at the very high end, are still in the making. That said, Bright Computing is in the thick of efforts to Read more…
Remember “Cherry Creek,” the Intel-designed supercomputer that ran for the duration of SC13 Supercomputing Conference? This “demonstration” system achieved a 400 ranking on that November’s TOP500 list based on a Linpack performance of 131.5 teraflops and a 41st ranking on the subsequent Green500. Intel built the supercomputer in partnership with Supermicro and Bright Computing as Read more…
This week Dell announced a tailored offering for the genomics set with its Active Infrastructure for HPC Life Sciences offering. Outfitted with up 32 nodes in a single rack, the company is pitching Infiniband, Lustre, Terascala and Bright Computing options at the sequencing set that they say wants to focus on science, not servers. The Intel-powered…
It all starts as a perfectly good day. Suddenly a compute job crashes without warning, and then seconds later the whole job queue flushes. You push aside that cup of coffee you just poured and let out a stream of expletives. Yes, the Black Hole Node Syndrome has struck again.
Bright Cluster Manager 6.0 allows users to extend on-site clusters or create entirely new clusters using the Amazon EC2 cloud, but what company officials are perhaps most proud of is the addition of data-aware scheduling. This set-it-and-forget-it job submission feature adds significant value to the cloud bursting model by boosting productivity and cycle times.
There’s a buzz in the HPC community about Bright Computing, a young company whose integrated cluster management software is attracting deals with hardware majors, investors, and customers. HPCwire asked Bright Computing CEO Matthijs van Leeuwen to explain his strategy and give us an update on what’s going on at the company.
