Izmir Institute of Technology selects Bright Computing

Share this on social media:

Bright Computing, a provider of high-performance infrastructure management solutions, has announced that Izmir Institute of Technology (IYTE) has become the latest institute to select Bright to manage its high performance computing infrastructure.

Founded in 1992, IYTE carries out research and education, with a particular focus on natural sciences and engineering. IYTE identified an opportunity to consolidate multiple compute nodes that were being operated by various university departments, in order to centralise administration and streamline costs.

With budget secured from IYTE Scientific Research Projects Department and the Turkish Scientific Research Council, the university’s seven disparate compute nodes and the servers that supported all nodes were to be replaced by a single HPC environment that all departments will share.

Turkish systems integrator, Eduline, was chosen by IYTE to carry out the project and provide service support. Eduline proposed that the solution include Dell PowerEdge R720 and PowerEdge R620 servers.

Zehra DurmuÅŸ, Sales Representative at Eduline, commented; “We’re delighted with the solution that has been implemented at IYTE. It has achieved the objectives of streamlining costs and centralising administration, so that all departments benefit from the compute power they need, without the requirement for time-consuming administration or costly overheads.”  

Eduline also sought a software solution to overarch the virtual environment and provide a single pane of glass interface that all departments could access, and chose the Bright infrastructure management solution. By selecting Bright, configuration and management of the infrastructure was far easier, giving the university departments more time to compute, and enabling research to be carried out more efficiently.

Dietmar Fuchs, Sales Director, DACH, CEE, Russia & CIS at Bright Computing, added; “This project was a real showcase for our partner, Eduline, and the combination of Bright and Dell technology has already lead to two new projects that we are working on together in the region; we are excited that this is a winning formula for Bright, Dell and Eduline.”
