17 Jan 2019 Amsterdam - Bechtle France has won a contract to be the sole distributor of Bright Computing's products and solutions to Groupe Logiciel's academic and research institutions across France.

Groupe Logiciel operates within France's Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, which brings together representatives from 13 University IT Resource Centers, 8 Research Organisations, and experts. Groupe Logiciel negotiates contracts with software publishers and sets up national markets.

The contract, signed in December 2018, states that Bechtle, a French Systems Integrator that specializes in digitization, Cloud, mobility, security and IT as a service, and a valued partner of Bright Computing, is the exclusive distributor of Bright technology to the members of Groupe Logiciel. This contract defines specific tariff conditions granted to higher education public research for the purchase of Bright Cluster Manager, Bright OpenStack, and Bright Cluster Manager for Data Science.

Lee Carter, VP Alliances at Bright Computing, commented: "I'm excited that, together with our valued partner, Bechtle France, Bright Computing has signed an agreement to deliver our industry-leading HPC, Cloud and Data Science technologies to Groupe Logiciel. Our goal at Bright Computing is to offer the best cluster management solutions on the planet. With a strong and loyal customer base that stretches across all geographies and industry sectors, our software empowers organisations to push the boundaries of HPC, Cloud, Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence."

He continued: "Our partnership with Bechtle couples the France-based Systems Integrator's impressive technical expertise and industry understanding, with Bright's ground-breaking software, to offer Groupe Logiciel's members state-of-the-art solutions that will meet their current and future requirements."

Bright Cluster Manager for HPC will be used to deploy and manage hyperconverged servers. It is a single dashboard for managing hardware, operating system, HPC software and users. Groupe Logiciel will also use the "for Datascience" version of Bright Cluster Manager to manage Big Data and deep learning applications. Finally, Bright Computing's OpenStack solution will enable the ministry's working group to deploy, implement and manage a OpenStack-based private Cloud infrastructure.
