Brazil's UNIVAP taps Scherm and Bright Computing for new astrophysics and molecular physics cluster

18 Jan 2012 São Paolo - Instituto de Pesquisa & Desenvolvimento - Universidade do Vale do Paraíba (IP&D-UNIVAP) is running Bright Cluster Manager on its new high performance computing (HPC) cluster. This system is being used to support astrophysics and molecular physics research at UNIVAP's São José dos Campos Urbanova campus. The cluster, comprising Intel Xeon 5660 CPUs and NVIDIA Telsa GPUs was installed by Bright partner Scherm Brasil.

UNIVAP's Astrophysics department is using its new cluster to simulate the dynamics of colliding galaxies, as well as to test theories of cosmological structure formation. The Molecular Physics department is researching semiconductor nanoparticles, absorption of organic molecules on flat surfaces and simulating the structure and optical properties of plasma membranes.

"We were looking for a cluster management solution that would remove the complexity of managing our CPU/GPU cluster", stated Dr. Irapuan Rodrigues, professor of Physics at UNIVAP. "We are researchers, not sys admins, and prefer to spend our time on science. We chose Bright because it's efficient, easy to learn and use, and takes little of our time to get the most out of our HPC cluster. Further, we needed a solution that would easily scale as we expand our system. Bright's unified environment is a big advantage for us."

UNIVAP was Scherm Brasil's first installation of Bright Cluster Manager. Guilherme Friol, Scherm's CIO, installed, configured and tested the cluster in less than five hours, enabling him to hand-over the cluster to UNIVAP's scientists the same day he unpacked the components.

The next day, Guilherme Friol installed an HPC cluster for another client, also in less than a day.

"Bright is fantastic. It's the ideal cluster management solution for us, and for our customers", stated Guilherme Friol. "Bright is intuitive to use and very efficient. We are quickly able to meet all of the needs of our clients, and to provide additional value by minimizing ongoing management costs and effort."
