Bright Computing and Huawei partner to accelerate HPC with ARM and AI

Bright Computing and Huawei, a global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, announced that the two companies are collaborating to offer intelligent HPC solutions accelerated by ARM and AI technology.

Xie Haibo, HPC Business Director of Huawei IT Product Line, said; ‘AI and ARM technologies are bringing new vitality to HPC. Huawei has been committed to building an all-scenario, powerful HPC and AI converged computing platform. We believe our partnership with Bright Computing can help customers cope with the deployment and management of diverse computing resources, streamline business processes, and accelerate product development and research progress.’

Under this partnership, Bright Computing and Huawei will develop ease-of-system-integration by running Bright Cluster Manager on Huawei’s Atlas intelligent computing platform and Taishan series ARM-based servers. This collaboration will empower joint customers to manage HPC, big data, and deep learning resources from a central point of control.

In the next phase, Bright Computing and Huawei plan to strengthen their cooperation and offer HPC solutions across hybrid cloud deployments to fully leverage heterogeneous computing and ARM-based architectures for HPC workloads.

Martijn de Vries, CTO at Bright Computing, added: ‘Bright Computing is committed to support Huawei’s go-to-market strategy and their strong focus on research and development. AI and ARM technologies are very important to our customer base, and I am confident that our partnership with Huawei will continue to go from strength to strength.’

Organisations wishing to find out more about the partnership can visit Bright Computing at Huawei’s Eco-Connect Europe Event, taking in place at La Nuvola in Rome, November 8-9, and visit both Bright Computing (booth #3025) and Huawei (booth #3047) at Supercomputing in Dallas, November 12-15, 2018.
