Bright Computing Celebrates its 200th Customer in Europe

Bright Computing, a leading provider of management solutions for clusters and clouds, today announced its European customer list has grown to 200 customers. Building on its success in providing cluster management solutions to European organizations in many industries, the company is expanding its go-to-market activities across Europe. Bright is actively building its partner network with an emphasis on a new product line that enables the company to meet the market’s growing needs for managing Hadoop clusters and OpenStack private clouds.

Bright’s extensive network of partners, resellers and systems integrators has enabled the company to provide Bright Cluster Manager to universities, research organizations, and enterprises with sophisticated technical computing needs. The company has already added resources to better support its European partner network, and plans to do even more in the coming months, as well as extending it partner network with new resellers.

“Some of the most advanced clusters in Europe rely on our software for provisioning and management,” said Dr. Matthijs van Leeuwen, CEO and founder of Bright Computing. “We are very proud that more than 200 customers including Academisch Ziekenhuis Maastricht (AMSL), CERN, the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS), and the University of Amsterdam all trust their cluster management needs to Bright.”

The company’s latest products add significant new capabilities to the product line, making it possible to manage Big Data with Hadoop, and to host private clouds on-premise using OpenStack.

Customer Quotes

Technical University of Eindhoven
“We have been using Bright Cluster Manager for more than half a year now and can recommend it to anyone who wants a complete and easy-to-use software solution for his HPC cluster. Using Bright Cluster Manager is a completely different experience from using the open source cluster management solutions that you can download off the web. Its GUI is very intuitive to use and offers all functionality I need as an administrator on a day-to-day basis.”
— Erik Smeets, Systems Administrator at the Technical University of Eindhoven

Boeing
“Bright Cluster Manager’s rapid rebooting across nodes has reduced our node provisioning by a factor of ten, and it’s done with a few mouse-clicks.”
— Greg Siekas, High Performance Computing Technical Lead at Boeing

Swiss National Supercomputing Centre
“There’s a growing interest in production use of hybrid-architecture systems in our HPC centre. This means we need to be able to provision, monitor and manage systems with accelerators and coprocessors with minimal administrative overhead. Our evaluation of Bright Cluster Manager demonstrated that it met our needs in a satisfactory way.”
— Hussein Harake of CSCS

MINES ParisTech
“Bright significantly eases the day-to-day management of all HPC resources. For example, using Bright's capability to logically group nodes according to hardware type or location, we are able to rapidly perform scheduled service on a highly selective basis. The Bright-enabled efficiency and effectiveness of our IT operations is already allowing us to improve the level of service we provide to our on and off-site researchers. In fact, most of our researchers are completely unaware that their materials-science HPC cluster is in fact a consolidated resource that spans two physical sites.”
— Gregory Sainte-Luce, Computer Network and Systems Engineer, Centre des Matériaux at MINES ParisTech

EMD International
“The installation and initial integration of the cluster has run very smoothly, and was completed in less than one week time. In our project schedule we had expected this task to last much longer, so by selecting a joint Dell/ClusterVision/Bright solution, we have been able to focus our efforts in developing our new software services and linking it into our existing infrastructure.”
— Thorkild Guldager Sørensen, Software Developer and HPC System Administrator

Bordeaux 1
“In the end Bright Computing's flexible user portal and its powerful cluster management software was an important part of our decision.”
— Pierre Gay, Lead Systems Administrator, University Bordeaux 1

Goethe University Frankfurt
“Our uniquely complex cluster represents a difficult management challenge, which is why we chose Bright Cluster Manager. We needed a solution we could trust, and Bright's proven success in managing complex systems combining x86 and GPU technologies won us over. We are thrilled with how Bright's comprehensive, yet easy-to-use solution helps us manage and control our very important supercomputer.”
— Prof. Volker Lindenstruth, Chair for HPC Architecture at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies

Murex
“IT resources are rare these days and the Bright Computing cluster management suite enabled us to avoid investing a huge number of man days rediscovering what others in research and the industry have already done, or re-developing something internally that we would have had to support for years. The possibility to extend our cluster with EC2 is perfectly suited to our usage since, from time to time, we need to run some benchmarks on huge test cases which exceed our own compute capacity,”
— Pierre Spatz, Head of Quantitative Analysis Murex.
