Bright Computing partners with ProfitBricks to offer customers an elastic high performance computing solution


9 Jun 2016 Amsterdam - Bright Computing, a provider of hardware-agnostic cluster and Cloud management software, has signed a partnership with ProfitBricks, the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) company based in Germany. ProfitBricks provides virtual data centres that enable corporate customers to combine the advantages of Cloud computing with the established look and feel of a traditional data centre. The company offers the unique advantage of guaranteeing performance by mapping the physical processor one-to-one with the virtual processor; virtual machines can be easily transferred to ProfitBricks with no "lock-in" effect. Furthermore, ProfitBricks offers a simple price model with fair minute-based billing and an unrivalled price-performance ratio.

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:

  • Deploy HPC cluster in minutes, not days or weeks
  • Automatically adjust clusters to current workloads
  • Pay-per-use for HPC cluster
  • Manage HPC nodes through a single pane of glass

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."
