Bright Computing yesterday announced an agreement signed with Novell to offer its Bright Cluster Manager software bundled with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server [SLES]. The agreement lays out plans for Bright Computing and Novell to jointly use their sales and reseller channels to offer the software bundle to customers world-wide as well as joint marketing activities.
Bright Cluster Manager and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server are a solid combination for installing, using and managing high performance compute clusters,” said Holger Dyroff, vice president of business development, Open Platform Solutions at Novell. “The bundle will strengthen the performance and stability as well as the ease of use of HPC systems built for industrial, government and academic organizations of any size.”
With eight of the top ten supercomputers in the world (source: TOP500.org) relying on its scalability and performance, SUSE Linux Enterprise is a proven operating system for high performance computing,” said Martijn de Vries, CTO at Bright Computing. “With the new Bright Cluster Manager/SUSE Linux Enterprise Server bundle, it is now easier than ever to build, use and manage HPC clusters based on SUSE Linux Enterprise.”
The bundle is already availble from Bright and its resellers. For those attending SC09, Bright Computing will be demonstrating their cluster manager digs in booth #1347.
