Cray CX1 and CX1000 now available with Bright Cluster Manager
Bright Cluster Manager was designed to make high-performance compute (HPC) clusters extremely easy to use. Its intuitive graphical user interface offers access to all cluster management functionality, without the need to use the Linux command line. An additional benefit for Cray CX1 and Cray CX1000 customers is Bright Cluster Manager's built-in support for GPU computing, including GPU drivers, CUDA & OpenCL libraries and GPU monitoring and management capability.
"Using Bright Cluster Manager is a completely different experience from using the open source cluster management solutions that you can download off the web. Its GUI is very intuitive to use and offers all functionality I need as an administrator on a day-to-day basis," says Erik Smeets, Systems Administrator at the Technical University of Eindhoven.
"Our vision for the Cray CX line of supercomputers has always been focused on expanding the customer base of HPC users by designing and delivering a product based on the tenets of ease-of-use computing," says Ian Miller, Senior Vice President of the Productivity Solutions Group and Marketing at Cray (NASDAQ:CRAY)
