Bright - Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre integration

The latest version of the Bright Cluster Manager software is now integrated with the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre (IEEL) software, enabling systems administrators to deploy, use and maintain Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre using Bright. Because Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre metrics and diagnostics are included, admins have access to a comprehensive view of Lustre file systems, servers, and clients as managed resources through Bright’s GUI.

The enhancements offer significant value by making Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre configuration and setup easy, while also reducing the ongoing administrative burden through proactive diagnostics based on Lustre-specific metrics and tests, for example.

Designed to enable fully parallel I/O throughput across thousands of clients, servers, and storage devices, the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre software enhances the performance and scalability of the Lustre parallel file system for HPC workloads. End users who need the benefits of large-scale, high-bandwidth storage can easily access all of Lustre’s capabilities through the integrated combination of IEEL and Bright Cluster Manager.

The Bright - Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre integration will enable customers to automate the installation of Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre, while providing access to Bright-managed technologies from a central point of control.
