The Linux Foundation has announced a new initiative that it is calling the OpenHPC Collaborative Project. Many other organizations have also signed on to the effort, which will focus on creating an open source computing stack for high-performance computing (HPC).
"The community will provide an integrated and validated collection of HPC components that can be used to provide a full-featured reference HPC software stack available to developers, system administrators and users," the foundation said. "OpenHPC will provide flexibility for multiple configurations and scalability to meet a wide variety of user needs."
The project will create HPC development tools, as well as system administration, resource management, I/O and performance analysis tools.
