OpenHPC was formed with the motivation to more efficiently build, test, deliver and configure integrated HPC software components and tools. Launched initially in November 2015, and formalized as a collaborative Linux Foundation project in June 2016, OpenHPC currently has over 35 members from academia, research labs, and industry. To date, the OpenHPC software stack aggregates a variety of software components ranging from administrative tools like bare-metal provisioning and resource management to end-user development libraries that span a range of scientific/numerical uses. OpenHPC adopts a familiar package repository delivery model and provides builds for multiple Linux distributions and architectures.
