San Jose, California — Bright Computing, a leader in cluster management software, today announced that Boeing has acquired a site license for Bright Cluster Manager®. This agreement enables the use of Bright Cluster Manager on any x86-based hardware platform throughout the company. Boeing’s first implementations of Bright Cluster Manager are in production on multiple clusters, including a 512-node Hewlett-Packard cluster in the Information Technology Infrastructure (ITI) organization.

Boeing selected Bright Cluster Manager after an extensive selection procedure and multiple onsite/offsite evaluations. The Boeing team was looking for a comprehensive suite of capabilities that would meet the diverse and demanding requirements of various engineering teams across the company. They were also looking for clear portability across platforms, enabling them to realize the benefits of a standardized model for installation, diskless provisioning over IB, monitoring and management.

“Bright Cluster Manager’s rapid rebooting across nodes has reduced our node provisioning by a factor of ten, and it’s done with a few mouse-clicks,” stated Greg Siekas, High Performance Computing Technical Lead at Boeing.

Bright Cluster Manager has been implemented on a number of HP systems worldwide, and this is the first time the companies have provided a joint solution at Boeing.

“This supports one of Boeing’s IT priorities to realize productivity gains by streamlining processes and tools to eliminate waste,” said Luis Gutierrez, Boeing ITI Global Data Center and Server Infrastructure Director.
