HPC Servers, Clusters Integrated with Bright Cluster Manager Developed by Koi Computers

CHICAGO, Nov. 13, 2020 — Koi Computers, recently awarded Bright Computing’s Advanced partner status, is integrating their leading-edge HPC servers and clusters with Bright Cluster Manager for powerful performance that delivers a significant competitive advantage.  Bright Cluster Manager, designed by Bright Computing, automates the process of building and managing modern high performance Linux clusters, eliminating complexity and enabling flexibility. Features include:

  • Automated Cluster Provisioning and Setup: provisions nodes from bare metal; sets-up network, user directory, and security; deploys workload managers and frameworks; runs pre-checks across the entire cluster prior to deployment
  • Automated Problem Detection and Isolation: provides detailed monitoring metrics and health-checks; reports resource usage by job and user; allows automated corrective actions to be taken; automatically detects and images replacement nodes
  • Automated Change Management: 1-step propagation of updates; auto-update nodes without reimaging; can easily add more servers and new components; replaces failing nodes without disruption; prevents image-drift among 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; hosts HPC, machine learning and data analytics applications on the same cluster; extends to the public cloud for additional resources; provisions and manages edge compute as part of the central cluster; dynamically allocates resources where they're needed based on demand

Bright Cluster Manager enables Koi Computers’ clients to administer servers and clusters as a single entity, provisioning the hardware, operating system and software from a single interface. It provides everything needed to quickly deploy a complete AI, deep learning environment with fast access to ML libraries, frameworks, notebooks, and analytics applications.

Jack Hanna, Director Alliances at Bright Computing, commented, “Koi Computers has been a valued Bright reseller for over a decade, and we enjoy a dynamic relationship, working together to provide leading edge technology solutions for the HPC industry across America.”  Bright Computing will have a virtual booth at SC20 Nov. 16-20, along with a dynamic microsite just for the event.
