Heading into ISC16, OpenHPC Releases Latest Stack with 60-plus Packages

June 16, 2016

SC15 was sort of a muted launch party for OpenHPC – the nascent effort to develop a ‘plug-and-play’ software framework for HPC. There seemed to be widespread agreement the idea had merit, not a lot of knowledge of details, and some wariness because Intel was a founding member and vocal advocate. Next week, ISC16 will mark the next milestone for OpenHPC, which has since grown into a full-fledged Linux Foundation Collaborative Project and today released version 1.0.1 of OpenHPC (build and test tools).

Enabling Open Source High Performance Workloads with Red Hat

High performance workloads, big data, and analytics are increasingly important in finding real value in today's applications and data. Before we deploy applications and mine data for mission and business insights, we need a high-performance, rapidly scalable, resilient infrastructure foundation that can accurately, securely, and quickly access data from all relevant sources. Red Hat has technology that allows high performance workloads with a scale-out foundation that integrates multiple data sources and can transition workloads across on-premise and cloud boundaries.
