Bright Computing signs partnership agreement with NTS Africa to drive adoption of infrastructure management

12 May 2015 Amsterdam - Bright Computing, an expert in high performance infrastructure management solutions for Cloud, Big Data and HPC, has signed a partnership with NTS Africa, a company that provides clients with advanced technology and integrated IT solutions.

NTS Africa specialises in forming strategic alliances and partnerships to blend best of breed products into leading technology solutions for its African customer base. In this way, customers benefit from state of the art IT solutions that solve real business issues, and first class consultancy and services from NTS Africa's highly skilled technical team.

Companies across Africa are embarking on transformational IT projects to become more agile, more cost efficient, and more productive. NTS Africa has identified Bright Cluster Manager as a technology that delivers a clear return on investment and plays a major role in improving a company's operational efficiency, and is partnering with Bright Computing to capitalise on the opportunity this presents in the infrastructure management space.

NTS Africa is Dell's Service Delivery Partner in West Africa with the responsibility of deploying Dell solutions and services. Bright Computing and Dell also have a longstanding relationship, and this is evidenced by Dell hardware solutions being regularly coupled with Bright's innovative infrastructure management capabilities to introduce process automation and centralised operations to IT teams. The new partnership with Bright Computing puts NTS Africa in a strong position to offer its clients' valuable services around the world's most robust and popular server platforms and infrastructure management solutions.

Remi Afonja, Business Development Manager at NTS Africa, commented: "With customers in the oil and gas, financial services, telecommunications and education industries, there are many of our clients who are eager to hear how Bright Cluster Manager can add value to their IT infrastructure. In addition, there is still potential for growth in the high performance computing market in both Nigeria and Africa, and Bright's technology will certainly add value to our go-to-market offering when we address this new business opportunity."

Lee Carter, VP EMEA at Bright, added: "This is another great example of how Bright, Dell and a regional delivery partner can work so well together. As the demand for high performance infrastructure solutions grows, so too does the need for a flexible, scalable and easy to use management solution. We look forward to exploring this market with NTS Africa."
