cluster with Bright Cluster Manager to ensure that researchers minimize time spent managing their cluster, while gaining maximum advantage of Bright’s integrated MPI and mathematical libraries. Bright-Cluster-Manager.php">Bright Cluster Manager® to manage computing clusters in its Laboratory for Computing and Applied Mathematics (LAC). The center, focused on applied research for aerospace engineering, uses the HPC cluster to simulate spacecraft control and orbit guidance. Bright Cluster Manager because its unified solution for provisioning, job scheduling, monitoring and management reduced both complexity and workload for the center’s systems administrators. Bright: Intel’s HPC development team used Bright throughout the Sandy Bridge development process, ensuring strong compatibility between the hardware and the cluster management solution. Bright partner Scherm Brasil, in conjunction with 12 research scientists from multiple academic departments, built and installed the new cluster in a single day.

“Bright Cluster Manager is a powerful tool for building and testing HPC clusters,” said Guilherme Friol, CTO at Scherm Brasil. “We installed Bright on bare metal in under an hour, including our choice of workload manager that Bright provides as a pre-configured option. With Bright, we were able to quickly configure and test the system far faster than what is possible with other cluster management software. We also felt good about providing our customer with Bright for ongoing cluster management...The scientists needed to quickly access and manage compilers, the message passing interface (MPI) libraries, and the mathematical libraries. Bright Cluster Manager makes it fast and easy for the researchers to access and use multiple libraries and compilers.

“We needed a solution that minimized the time and expense of cluster management. With Bright, we are able to spend nearly all of our time simulating and investigating complex aerospace engineering models,” said Dr. Elbert E.N. Macau, professor of Computing and Applied Mathematics. “We chose Bright because its highly intuitive, integrated approach for managing our HPC cluster and associated libraries saves us a lot of time, and eliminates the need to hire staff to manage our cluster.”
