San Jose, California — Bright Computing, the leading, vendor-independent provider of cluster and cloud management solutions, announced today that it has been declared Main Software 50 “Highest Growth” award winner. Independently owned, privately held top finishers are ranked according to substance, growth, quality of revenue and degree of internationalization.

Bright Computing earned the “Highest Growth” award by demonstrating the key success factors the awards panel deemed as critical. First, Bright leverages its well-established partner network with an intense focus on partner enablement. Partners accelerate Bright’s growth and its reach globally, delivering highly valued localized expertise. Bright’s strong partner network also played a strong part in helping it achieve the second critical success factor -- internationalization. The third success factor Bright excelled in was recurring revenue. Predictable revenue streams, complemented by other revenue sources, allow Bright to continue to re-invest in research and development – the fourth criteria the panel uses to evaluate successful software companies. The final piece of the puzzle that led the panel to choose Bright was their knowledge that successful software companies incorporate cloud computing into their business. Bright pioneered utilization of the cloud by extending on-premise clusters with cloud-based IT resources, allowing for the creation of clusters in the cloud. Technical innovation, coupled with cloud-friendly software licensing models, continue to afford Bright accolades as a cloud-savvy standout.

“Bright Computing is a great example of the scalability of the software industry,” stated Charly Zwemstra, Managing Partner, Main Capital Partners. “The extreme high growth combined with its international exposure make Bright Computing a deserving winner of the Highest Growth award. The future does indeed look bright for Bright Computing”.
