Bright Cluster Manager chosen for TOP500-class HPC Cluster in France

4 May 2011 San Jose - Bright Computing, an expert in cluster management software, has been selected to provide the cluster management solution for a French research consortium's new supercomputer. The HPC cluster, to be installed by ClusterVision at the University of Bordeaux 1, comprises 528 Intel Xeon X5675 processors in the energy-efficient Dell PowerEdge C6100 servers. These 3168 cores will provide 38,852 Gflops of processing power for the Aquitaine region of France, ranking it among the current TOP500 supercomputers list. Bright Cluster Manager will be used to deploy, test, monitor and manage the cluster.

The University Bordeaux 1 leads an impressive consortium of universities and research institutes who are investing in this supercomputer to support leading-edge research in science and technology. Included in the group are four national institutes: INRIA (Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique) for computer science; INRA (Institut National de Recherche en Agronomie) for biological research; INSERM (Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale) for medical research; and CNRS (Centre National de Recherche Scientifique) to support research in all branches of science. The supercomputer will be installed at the "Université Bordeaux 1 Sciences et Technologies" IT facility in Talence, France.

This project is supported by the Aquitaine Regional Government with financial backing from the European Union and the European Regional Development Fund.

"This new supercomputer will bring scientists and engineers in the region unprecedented access to supercomputing resources", stated Jacques Bernard, Supercomputing Manager for MCIA - Mésocentre de Calcul Intensif Aquitain. "Currently, researchers in the Aquitaine region must compete for time at other large national or European centres such as IDRIS, CINES or CCRT. They will soon be able to research faster and better serve the needs of industry in our region."

"As you would expect, the evaluation process for this project was intense", stated Pierre Gay, the lead systems administrator in charge of the project. "In the end Bright Computing's flexible user portal and its powerful cluster management software was an important part of our decision."
