PRESS RELEASE

Bright Cluster Manager enhances support for Nvidia GPUs and Cuda 5.5

Bright Computing has announced the general availability of enhanced support for Nvidia GPU accelerators in Bright Cluster Manager. Enhancements include support for the Nvidia Cuda Toolkit version 5.5, the most recent version of the Nvidia Cuda parallel programming platform.

The fully integrated and comprehensive support in Bright Cluster Manager includes metrics specific to Nvidia GPU accelerators; programmability environments for applications utilising Cuda, OpenCL or directives-based OpenACC; configuration of GPU accelerator settings through the Bright command-line as well as graphical-user interfaces; Bright instructions for making exploratory use of the Multi-Process Service (MPS); and recognition of Nvidia GPU accelerators as computational resources available through the workload management (WLM) system.
