Fast on the uptake, Bright Cluster Manager received the Intel Cluster Ready Voyager Award in 2009. The synergy between Intel’s program and Bright’s software continues to this day. With the introduction of general-availability support for the Intel Xeon Phi in Bright Cluster Manager 6.1, Intel and Bright are already taking the initiative to broaden and deepen this program. At the highest level, Bright 6.1 allows stand-alone Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors to be provisioned, monitored and managed - thus extending what Bright has been able to do for Intel CPUs for some time. Bright support for this new coprocessor from Intel includes recompilation of the appropriate driver against the kernel at boot time, comprehensive networking plus various tailored metrics. Even more interesting, however, is Bright’s ability to incorporate individual Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors as bona fide devices from the more holistic perspective of the cluster. As first-class devices, the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors are monitored and managed on an ongoing basis via the command-line and GUI interfaces in Bright, while also being accessible via the Bright APIs. Because this latest version of Bright also includes enhancements in the area of workload management, organizations can already take advantage of various execution models presented by the hybrid Intel Xeon - Intel Xeon Phi environment - from native to offload modes. Execution-model support targeted specifically to this hybrid CPU-coprocessor based architecture complements existing support that provides a problem-free environment for running compute jobs via Bright's Cluster Health Framework. Overall Bright Cluster Manager 6.1 literally delivers a turnkey capability to organizations that seek to rapidly integrate, and get results from, the introduction of the Intel Xeon Phi into their HPC environments. In this presentation, a brief technical overview of support for the Intel Xeon Phi via Bright Cluster Manager 6.1 will be provided.
