WATCH THE VIDEO: Meeting the OpenStack Challenge
OpenStack is a powerful framework for building private clouds, but it can be challenging to get up and running and to keep it running efficiently.  If you’re responsible for deploying, provisioning, updating, managing, monitoring, and securing an OpenStack environment, you’ve got a lot to juggle. Challenges include the interdependency between hardware and software, dealing with hardware failures, and keeping up with constant demand for changes. Bright OpenStack makes it easy to deploy and manage OpenStack private clouds.
The Bright Advantage
When it's time to build your own private cloud, OpenStack provides the framework — and Bright makes it easy.

How It Works
Bright Computing has been providing management solutions for clustered systems for many years, and we’ve brought that experience to OpenStack management. Bright lets you administer your private cloud infrastructure as a single entity, provisioning the hardware, operating system, and cloud framework from a single interface. This makes it easier to build a robust private cloud, reliably, with the resources you already have. Once your cloud is up and running, our daemon keeps an eye on virtually every aspect of every node, and reports any problems it detects in the software or the hardware so that you can take action and keep your infrastructure healthy. The Bright management interface lets you see what’s going on from top to bottom.
