OpenHPC Project Lead Karl Schulz recently gave a project overview and update at the 2017 MVAPICH Users Group. Check out the presentation and follow along with the links below.
There is a growing sense within the HPC community for the need to have an open community effort to more efficiently build, test, and deliver integrated HPC software components and tools. To address this need, OpenHPC launched as a Linux Foundation collaborative project in 2016 with combined participation from academia, national labs, and industry. The project’s mission is to provide a reference collection of open-source HPC software components and best practices in order to lower barriers to deployment and advance the use of modern HPC methods and tools. This presentation will present an overview of the project, highlight packaging conventions and currently available software, outline integration testing/validation efforts with bare-metal installation recipes, and discuss recent updates and expected future plans.
