Bright Computing, the vendor-independent provider of cluster management software, has announced that China’s Tsinghua University is using Bright Cluster Manager to support research on climate change.
Located in Beijing, the university’s Centre for Earth System Science develops software based on the Community Earth System Model and the Flexible Global Ocean-Atmosphere-Land System. Bright is used to manage the centre’s Hadoop and Hive data warehouse cluster, an advanced development and benchmarking platform for modelling and studying changes in the earth’s climate.
Tsinghua University selected Bright Cluster Manager as a solution for deploying, testing, provisioning, monitoring and managing its cluster while minimising staffing requirements.
'We needed a solution that would provide deep insights and better visibility into every aspect of our cluster. Bright’s highly intuitive interface gives us a complete view, including the ability to drill down to examine specific issues,' said Dr Xue of the Center for Earth System Science.
Paratera, a leading professional HPC software and services provider in China, led the cluster project.
