Awarded by the European Commission's Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME), the Horizon 2020 programme supports SMEs with global ambitions that want to disrupt the established value networks and existing markets. Bright will receive both funding and world-class business coaching.
Over the past few years, more of Bright's HPC users have been combining high-performance computing, Big Data, and Cloud infrastructure, and they are seeking to apply common management platforms and paradigms across them. The Bright Beyond HPC programme involves deepening Bright's capabilities in managing high performance computing clusters, as well as extending these capabilities further - and in a tightly integrated way - across big data clusters and OpenStack based private Clouds.
Bright Beyond HPC involves developing, testing, demonstrating, and validating additional software modules and functions for Bright Cluster Manager for HPC, Bright Cluster Manager for Big Data, and Bright OpenStack that will enable current and future users in enterprise, government, academic, and research organisations to manage their advanced IT infrastructures more easily than ever before.
