Bright CTO Martijn de Vries will demonstrate how Amazon EC2 nodes can be accessed, provisioned, scheduled, monitored and managed as part of on-premise HPC clusters
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 15 — Bright Computing today announced that Martijn de Vries, Bright Computing CTO, will present a powerful approach to extending on-premise HPC clusters into EC2. The demonstration will step the audience through the few mouse clicks to open an EC2 session and then show how cloud-based CPUs and GPUs are provisioned, scheduled, monitored and managed as part of the on-premise cluster, using Bright Cluster Manager. The discussion will include networking outside of the firewall, seamless GPU management, data aware scheduling and cost containment; key capabilities that are particularly useful for running HPC applications in the cloud.
Martijn will also demonstrate how to create – with only a few mouse clicks – an entirely new HPC cluster in Amazon EC2, fully managed within the Bright Cluster Manager GUI and cluster management shell.
"Customer demand for HPC management solutions that include cloud-based computing has risen dramatically this year," said de Vries. "We're seeing particularly strong interest in our data aware scheduling for the cloud — a capability that only Bright offers."
The presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, June 19 from 3:45 PM to 4:30 PM at hall C2.1 at the Congress Center Hamburg.
