Department of Energy national research laboratory, and Avetec Inc., a Springfield, Ohio-based high-tech research organization, utilizing Bright Cluster Manager®...For many researchers, complicated interfaces present a barrier to using HPC, leaving them at a disadvantage...Bright Cluster Manager for the program, knowing that Bright does not require knowledge of operating systems to make Linux-based clusters easy to install, manage and use.
“Our academic courses focus primarily on Windows-based networking and cyber security, so our students don’t typically have a great deal of experience with Linux,” said Professor Heighton. “Interns working on our Linux-based HPC cluster team needed a management solution that was easy-to-use. Bright Cluster Manager enabled them to quickly configure and test their HPC cluster, before running Linpack benchmarking assessments and performance tests.”
“The Linpack benchmark is rigorous,” continued Professor Heighton. “It is used by the TOP500 project, which ranks and details the 500 non-distributed, most powerful known computer systems in the world. A key success factor for the team was to use a management solution that required little time to learn and implement, yet that was capable of ensuring we met our ultimate objectives.”
Concurrently, another team of interns worked at Avetec...Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
