Coupling Bright's infrastructure management technology with ProfitBricks' IaaS gives organisations a more agile and cost-effective solution to their premise-based high performance clustered environments, a viable, Cloud-based alternative. Together, Bright and ProfitBricks empower customers to dynamically expand or shrink the infrastructure needed to support their computationally intensive workloads whether it's traditional HPC or HPC-based Big Data analysis with Hadoop or Spark, all at the click of a button. This allows enterprises, research institutes and universities to only pay for the computational resources they need, when they are needed; saving time and budget. In addition, organisations are able to consume high volumes of compute power on an ad hoc basis, providing a much more elastic solution for computationally intensive workloads.
ProfitBricks will be present at the Bright booth #1120 at the ISC High Performance (ISC) conference in Frankfurt, June 20-22, 2016. At ISC, the two companies will demonstrate the benefits of this joint solution:
Petra-Maria Grohs, CSO EMEAA at ProfitBricks, commented: "Cloud-based solutions are increasingly appealing as they offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional on-premise solutions. Infrastructure is no exception and we are excited at the level of interest we are seeing in moving HPC and Big Data environments into the Cloud, in order to unlock cost and time savings."
Lee Carter, VP EMEA at Bright Computing, added: "Bright infrastructure management technology makes the transition from on-premise to Cloud-based HPC completely seamless, offering exactly the same end user experience regardless of where the HPC environment is hosted. We are finding that the elasticity of Cloud-based IaaS - and the ability to expand and contract HPC consumption at the touch of a button - is highly compelling to IT decision makers."
