University of Nevada Las Vegas selects winning combination of Bright Cluster Manager and Advanced HPC


2 Nov 2017 San Jose - The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) has selected Bright technology to manage its latest supercomputing environment, and Advanced HPC for the design and implementation.

UNLV is a public research institution committed to rigorous educational programmes and the highest standards of a liberal education. The Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine (NIPM) is an institute of the University that works to improve individual and systemic health care through translational clinical scientific research, education and workforce training, commercialization of technologies, and job creation.

NIPM has awarded the design and implementation of their new supercomputer to high performance computing specialist, Advanced HPC, because of Advanced HPC's deep understanding of NIPM's requirements and a strong relationship that is underpinned by trust.

NIPM has selected Bright Cluster Manager to provide single-pane-of-glass management for the supercomputer's hardware, operating system, mixture of open source HPC software, and users. Bright has been chosen over competing cluster management solutions as the technology has proved itself to be the easiest to use, and the most comprehensive in terms of technical capability. Bright's ability to support Cloud bursting, and its powerful and flexible image management tool also influenced NIPM's decision.

Richard Young, System Engineer at NIPM, commented: "We had very specific requirements for the new supercomputer and we are delighted we put our trust in Advanced HPC and Bright Computing. Advanced HPC got the new system up and running in just a few hours, and the Bright technology offers a zero-touch management solution that frees our researchers to focus on data analysis."

"From project inception, we understood the need to not only develop a customized solution for NIPM, but to also move quickly and efficiently", stated Toni Falcone, Advanced HPC President. "We felt fortunate that UNLV gave us the latitude to do so and Bright Cluster Manager provided all of the enterprise-grade technical horsepower and ease of use we needed to execute."

Dan Kuczkowski, VP Worldwide Sales at Bright Computing, added: "This is a great example of Bright working with a valued partner to deliver a stellar solution. Together, we have empowered NIPM to carry out research projects more quickly, more efficiently, and more cost-effectively than before."
