NVIDIA Scoops Up Bright Computing

Bright Computing, a provider of software for managing high performance computing, is now part of NVIDIA. Its product, Bright Cluster Manager, becomes the latest addition to NVIDIA’s software stack for accelerated computing.

Companies in healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, and other markets use its tool to set up and run HPC clusters, groups of servers linked by high-speed networks into a single unit.

Bright Computing, founded in 2009 and headquartered in Amsterdam, has customers that include household names such as Boeing, NASA, Johns Hopkins University, and Siemens.

NVIDIA has been working with Bright for more than a decade as they integrated their software with its GPUs, networking, CUDA and most recently DGX systems.

According to the company, combining NVIDIA and Bright’s system software capabilities will make HPC data centers easier to buy, build, and operate, creating a much larger future for HPC.

VIDIA’s partners will take Bright’s software to more markets. And Bright’s software and expertise will enhance NVIDIA DGX and its data center businesses.

Bright’s flexible software can run at the edge, in the data center and across multiple public or hybrid clouds. It automates administration for clusters whether they’re made up of a handful or hundreds of thousands of servers. And it supports Arm and x86 CPUs, NVIDIA GPUs and Kubernetes containers.

“NVIDIA is changing the world as we know it, and we couldn’t be more excited for our team and software to play a part in that,” said Bill Wagner, CEO of Bright Computing.

Bolstered by Bright Computing’s team and software, NVIDIA will continue to democratize access to HPC and accelerated computing.
