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.
Simple Deployment
The Bright installation wizard makes it easy. Just answer a few questions and Bright takes care of the rest.
Intuitive Management GUI
Cluster Management GUI (CMGUI) is optimized for performing daily OpenStack management operations
Configure using Role Assignments
Bright creates configuration files automatically using roles, so you won’t have to manage configuration files manually.
Integrated Monitoring and Health Checking
Bright monitors the OpenStack software, the servers, the network, and the operating system so you can rest assured your cloud is running as it should.
Headache-free Networking Setup
Bright cuts through the complexity of OpenStack networking setup so you can have a working configuration quickly.
Manage Storage Using Ceph
Ceph allows you to pool all of your server storage into a reliable redundant storage system. This enables you to scale with ease, and replace hardware without disruption.
