launched Version 8.2 of their product portfolio which incorporates
new capabilities for managing edge computing, improved workload
accounting/reporting, and support for 64-bit ARMv8 processors. The new release
also comes with PythonCM2—an all-new way to interact with Bright Cluster
Manager using Python—and features some big increases in performance.
Bright 8.2 also
features some significant under-the-hood improvements that deliver a five-fold
reduction in the amount of inter-node traffic generated for management. This
frees up more bandwidth for job-related communications and improves the overall
performance footprint of the entire cluster. Bright OpenStack 8.2 now includes
the 18th release of OpenStack, Rocky. This release of OpenStack addresses the
new demands for infrastructure—driven by use cases like AI, machine learning,
and NFV—and delivers enhanced features and support for diverse hardware
architectures including bare metal. Bright 8.2 also includes support for Ceph
Bright Cluster Manager
for Data Science has been expanded, adding the ability to schedule
containerised Spark service through Kubernetes with an NGINX proxy server as
ingress controller, and the ability to deploy and manage multiple Kubernetes
clusters in a single Bright Cluster
