Bright recently launched Version 8.2 of their product portfolio which incorporates new capabilities for managing edge computing, improved workload accounting/reporting, and support for 64-bit ARMv8 processors. The new release also comes with PythonCM2 - an all-new way to interact with Bright Cluster Manager using Python - and features some big increases in performance.
Bright 8.2 also features some significant under-the-hood improvements that deliver a five-fold reduction in the amount of inter-node traffic generated for management. This frees up more bandwidth for job-related communications and improves the overall performance footprint of the entire cluster. Bright OpenStack 8.2 now includes the 18th release of OpenStack, Rocky. This release of OpenStack addresses the new demands for infrastructure - driven by use cases like AI, machine learning, and NFV - and delivers enhanced features and support for diverse hardware architectures including bare metal. Bright 8.2 also includes support for Ceph v13.2.0 (Mimic).
Bright Cluster Manager for Data Science has been expanded, adding the ability to schedule containerized Spark service through Kubernetes with an NGINX proxy server as ingress controller, and the ability to deploy and manage multiple Kubernetes clusters in a single Bright cluster.
Bright empowers organisations to gain actionable insights from rich, complex data. To achieve this, Bright offers a comprehensive deep learning solution that includes:
