US-based CryoEM company, SingleParticle.com, partners with Bright


28 Sep 2017 San Jose - Bright Computing, a global expert in cluster and Cloud infrastructure automation software, has signed a reseller agreement with San Diego-based SingleParticle.com.

SingleParticle.com is the US subsidiary of Chinese company, BlueJay Imaging, and specializes in turn-key HPC infrastructure designed for high performance and low total cost of ownership (TCO), serving the global research community of cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM).

The partnership with Bright Computing enables SingleParticle.com to add cluster management to its portfolio. By offering Bright technology to its customer base, SingleParticle.com reduces the IT burden on its customers' cryoEM facilities. With Bright Cluster Manager, managing SingleParticle.com clusters become much less time-consuming and onerous, enabling customers to focus on solving new structures that can lead to new scientific discoveries and even new drug designs.

Recognized as the Method of the Year 2015 by Nature Methods, SingleParticle.com offers single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM), working with macromolecular structures at high resolution. The advancement of cryoEM in recent years brings about two challenges to many labs; a) the large amount of image data being generated every day from state-of-the-art direct electron detectors, b) intensive computation needed for 3D reconstruction software, such as the RELION package, developed by MRC-LMB in the UK.

SingleParticle.com's solution features include:

  • Fully scalable solution from 8 nodes to hundreds of nodes
  • Hybrid CPU/GPU cluster nodes in collaboration with AMAX information technologies, a provider of enterprise computing infrastructure solutions
  • High performance data storage with a proprietary file system, offering 300PB in single volume and great TCO with no hardware lock-in using commodity hardware
  • Expert support and service with a focus on cryoEM software

Dr. Clara Cai, Manager at SingleParticle.com, commented: "With Bright, the management of an HPC cluster becomes very straightforward, empowering end users to administer their workloads, rather than relying on HPC experts. We are confident that with Bright's technology, our customers can maintain our turn-key cryoEM cluster with little to no prior HPC experience."

Clemens Engler, Director Alliances at Bright Computing, added: "We welcome SingleParticle.com to the Bright partner community. This is an exciting opportunity for Bright technology to serve the cryoEM researchers."
