OpenSolaris HPC Community

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

opensolarisThe folks over at the OpenSolaris community have dedicated a community focus group to high performance computing.  The community is designed to spark interest and exchange notes on utilizing the OpenSolaris platform for high performance computing.  The community page lists four main purposes:

.: Provide a home for the OpenSolaris HPC distro

.: Highlight existing features and future enhancements relevant for high-performance computing

.: Provide a forum to discuss issues and possible solutions to problems faced by HPC developers

.: Provide pointers to pertinent resources and tools currently available.

The community page provides a list of participating development groups, including GridEngine, Xen, ZFS, pNFS, SAM-QFS, OpenMPI and Lustre.  Thanks to Dan Templeton for raising this on the SGE mailing list.
