Amsterdam, the Netherlands — Bright Computing, the leader in high performance infrastructure management solutions for cloud, big data and HPC, today announced that Anadolu University has chosen a collaborative solution from Bright Computing, Dell and Eduline, for its high performance computing (HPC) environment.

Anadolu is a public university in Eskişehir, a city in North West Turkey, and the second largest university in the world by enrollment. Anadolu University was created in 1982 when four existing higher education institutes in Eskişehir merged.

Cem Sevik, a Professor from the Faculty of Engineering at Anadolu University approached Eduline with the requirement to create a new HPC environment that would be robust enough to carry out his scientific research project. With no clustered systems available at the university, Professor Sevik had secured funding from the Anadolu University, to build a system with enough compute power to support his groundbreaking research.

Eduline created an HPC environment based on Dell hardware, and once again, Eduline chose the Bright infrastructure management solution to centralise the provisioning, monitoring and management of all clusters, from a single user interface. The Eduline professional services team took responsibility for the design, build and deployment of the HPC InfiniBand project.


Zehra Durmuş, Sales Representative at Eduline, commented; “This was a particularly rewarding project because, shortly after the project was completed, Professor Sevik was honoured with Turkey’s Young Scientist award for High Achievement, as a result of the research project that he carried out on Anadolu’s new supercomputing environment.”


Lee Carter, VP EMEA at Bright Computing, added; “Our triumvirate is gathering momentum from Turkish organisations that require HPC solutions, with Eduline delivering successful projects that comprise a mix of Dell hardware and Bright software. We continue to lead the field in HPC infrastructure management solutions, but we are also seeing a growing interest in our solutions for Hadoop and OpenStack.”
