Bright CEO Matthijs van Leeuwen to Present “Extending HPC Clusters into Amazon EC2” at HP-CAST
Bright Computing today announced that Matthijs van Leeuwen will present the Bright Cluster Manager® solution for cloud bursting, as part of the Cluster and Workflow Management track at HP-CAST in Hamburg, Germany.
Alternatively, Bright users can create an entirely new cluster in Amazon EC2, and manage these resources using Bright.
Dr. van Leeuwen will also present the use of Bright’s data aware scheduling capability for the cloud. Bright automatically makes the data required for compute jobs accessible in the cloud before the start of computation, and then moves the results back to the user upon completion. This capability eliminates the need to manually initiate and then monitor data movement, saving both time and cloud computing costs.
The Hewlett-Packard Consortium for Advanced Scientific and Technical (HP-CAST) computing users group works to increase the capabilities of HP solutions for large-scale, scientific and technical computing. HP-CAST provides guidance to HP on the essential development and support issues for such systems. No membership is required to attend HP-CAST conferences.
