Today Bright Computing announced that Anadolu University has chosen a collaborative solution from Bright, Dell and Eduline, for its high performance computing environment. Located in Northwest Turkey, Anadolu is the second largest university in the world by enrollment.
Our triumvirate is gathering momentum from Turkish organizations that require HPC solutions, with Eduline delivering successful projects that comprise a mix of Dell hardware and Bright software,” said Lee Carter, VP EMEA at Bright Computing. “We continue to lead the field in HPC infrastructure management solutions, but we are also seeing a growing interest in our solutions for Hadoop and OpenStack.”
Cem Sevik, a Professor from the Faculty of Engineering at Anadolu University approached Eduline with the requirement to create a new HPC environment that would be robust enough to carry out his scientific research project. With no clustered systems available at the university, Professor Sevik had secured funding from the Anadolu University, to build a system with enough compute power to support his groundbreaking research.
Eduline created an HPC environment based on Dell hardware, and once again, Eduline chose the Bright infrastructure management solution to centralize the provisioning, monitoring and management of all clusters, from a single user interface. The Eduline professional services team took responsibility for the design, build and deployment of the HPC InfiniBand project.
This was a particularly rewarding project,” said Zehra Durmuş, Sales Representative at Eduline. “Shortly after the project was completed, Professor Sevik was honored with Turkey’s Young Scientist award for High Achievement, as a result of the research project that he carried out on Anadolu’s new supercomputing environment.”
