Bright Computing and CHPC Power Astronomical Research at China’s Purple Mountain Ob
Thanks to Bright Cluster Manager, scientists at China's Purple Mountain Observatory are able to focus their efforts on research, instead of managing their HPC cluster.
PMO, also known as the Zijinshan Astronomical Observatory, is China’s first modern research institute. Its graduate students are researching a wide range of topics relating to astronomy and physics, and are contributing to the knowledge base of both sciences.
The technology to support this research comes from the combination of CHPC and Bright Cluster Manager. CHPC provides software and services to address the high performance computing, complex data management, and storage needs of scientific, technical and business communities. CHPC’s technology helps users simulate climate changes, accelerate drug discovery, and assist with astrophysics simulations.
“High performance computing is an integral part of PMO’s research. It enables them to study and simulate dark energy, cosmology and high energy astrophysics,”
“Bright Cluster Manager helps us to serve our customers better,” continued Deng. “Bright makes it easy to install and manage clusters, while keeping operating costs down.”
