April 21 — Bright Computing, the leading independent provider of management software for high performance computing (HPC) clusters, big data clusters, and OpenStack clouds, announces that its Bright OpenStack solution is now fully integrated with Talligent’s advanced proprietary Openbook billing software for OpenStack clouds.
Openbook supports key cost and capacity reporting requirements for an efficient OpenStack cloud deployment. Its integration with Bright OpenStack will be a huge benefit for users who operate OpenStack clouds, especially when multiple clients, departments, or teams are sharing resources and a chargeback or usage reporting mechanism is required.
“The shift to cloud for IT service delivery requires a management model focused on cost and capacity control,” said Sanjay Mishra, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Talligent. “The key to running an efficient OpenStack cloud is providing clear visibility of resource usage and related charges to all stakeholders – tenant, operators, and executives. Integration with Bright OpenStack will make it easier than ever for customers to add these essential functions to their OpenStack cloud deployments.”
Leveraging a detailed history of cloud usage, Openbook by Talligent provides visibility into cloud resources consumed at the tenant and project or business level. This visibility is critical for budgeting and timely capacity planning in order to balance the need for high utilization with the illusion of infinite capacity. A Restful API means that the data can be shared where it is needed – customer portal, legacy accounting and CRM systems, or management reports and alerts.
“Our integration with Talligent reflects Bright’s unwavering commitment to making it easy to deploy and manage OpenStack,” said Bright Computing CEO Bill Wagner. “Bright’s certified OpenStack distribution, which manages both OpenStack and the underlying physical infrastructure from a single pane of glass interface, is further strengthened by this integration with Talligent’s industry-leading software.”
Bright Computing will be showcasing their integration with Talligent in Booth #B13 at the OpenStack Summit in Austin, Texas, April 25-28, 2016. Talligent can be found in Booth A23 at the Summit or at Talligent.com.
