National Chemical Laboratory invests in Bright Cluster Manager
Scientists at the National Chemical Laboratory (NCL) in India have selected Bright Cluster Manager to help streamline the process of installing, integrating and managing new clusters for polymer-based research. Specialising in chemical sciences and engineering, NCL is a globally recognised research and development organisation. Its newest cluster, installed by Bright partner Hinditron, comprises 19 AMD dual-socket nodes. NCL scientists, who run complex molecular dynamics simulations on HPC clusters, previously relied on scripting Rocks with other open source tool kits to manage their clusters. The team has now chosen Bright to eliminate the need for Linux expertise or custom scripting.
