Bright Cluster Manager

Bright Cluster Manager software automates the process of building and managing modern high-performance Linux clusters, eliminating complexity and enabling flexibility. Bright Cluster Manager is a cluster management application built on top of major Linux distributions.

Bright Cluster Manager provides:

  • Automated cluster provisioning & setup
    • Provisions nodes from bare metal
    • Sets-up network, user directory & security
    • Deploys workload managers & frameworks
    • Runs pre-checks across the entire cluster prior to deployment
  • Automated problem detection and isolation
    • Provides detailed monitoring metrics & health-checks
    • Reports resource usage by job and user
    • Allows automated corrective actions to be taken
    • Automatically detects and provisions replacement nodes
  • Automated change management
    • 1-step propagation of updates
    • Auto-update nodes without reimaging
    • Easily add more servers & new components
    • Replace failing nodes without disruption
    • Prevents image-drift amongst nodes
  • Unparalleled flexibility
    • Supports mixed processor, accelerator and Linux combinations within the same cluster
    • Run jobs on bare-metal, VMs or containers in the same cluster
    • Host HPC, machine learning and data analytics applications on the same cluster
    • Extend to the public cloud for additional resources
    • Provision and manage edge compute as part of your central cluster
    • Dynamically allocate and de-allocate resources based on demand

BCM Cluster Extension Cloudbursting

In weather, a cloudburst is used to convey the idea that a sudden flood of cloud contents takes place. In cluster computing, the term cloudbursting conveys the idea that a flood of extra cluster capacity is made available when needed from a cloud computing services provider such as Azure. Bright Cluster Manager cluster extension allows administrators to scale their cluster quickly and seamlessly to Azure by making additional nodes available from within Azure.

This offer

This image is not intended to be used by itself, it instead requires an existing Bright Cluster Manager cluster. If you don't have an existing Bright Cluster, you will need to contact Bright Computing at sales@brightcomputing.com. This offer is used as the source for nodes to provision and perform cluster extension cloudbursting of a Bright Cluster Manager to Azure.
