Bright Computing is chosen to manage the world's most powerful supercomputer dedicated to life sciences research

15 Jan 2015 Amsterdam - Bright Computing, an expert in high performance infrastructure management solutions for Cloud, Big Data and HPC, has unveiled the important role it has played in the launch of Denmark's most powerful supercomputer dedicated to life sciences.

Financed by the Technical University of Denmark, the DeIC, and the University of Copenhagen, the supercomputer - known as Computerome - is owned by the Center for Biological Sequence Analysis (CBS); an organisation that conducts research in the field of bioinformatics and systems biology. Computerome ranks 121 in the list of the world's largest publicly known supercomputers, making it by far the most powerful computer in Denmark, and the world's most powerful computer dedicated to life sciences.

Computerome comprises a state-of-the-art storage system and a heterogeneous supercomputer designed to accommodate the diverse nature of life science applications and the multiple types of data that characterises the field. University research units, hospitals, and the pharmaceutical industry will all use Computerome, enabling researchers to store and analyse the rapidly growing volumes of biological data, to compute how diseases are linked to particular genes, or how to alter bacteria so it acts like a biotechnological cell factory.

With more than 16,000 cores, 92 TeraByte of memory, and 7.5 PetaByte of storage, great emphasis has been placed on using innovative technologies to optimise the power of Computerome, to increase research capabilities in life science and reduce time to solution.

Bright Cluster Manager provides the overall system software and management solution that powers Computerome. Chosen for its flexibility and remote management capabilities, Bright Cluster Manager gives the Computerome systems management team a robust, responsive and comprehensive single-pane-of-glass management interface for Computerome's hardware, operating system, HPC software, and users.

Lee Carter, VP EMEA at Bright, commented: "Research-intensive organisations require large-scale computations, which is why industries like aerospace, manufacturing, life sciences, pharmaceuticals and exploration house the most powerful computers in the world. Bright's solution for high performance computing makes it incredibly easy to build and operate HPC clusters using the server and networking equipment of your choice, tying them together into a comprehensive, easy to manage solution. This is why CBS selected Bright; we offer the most powerful, vendor agnostic, HPC infrastructure management solution on the market today."
