In this video from HPCKP’19, Karl Schultz from TACC presents: OpenHPC: Community Building Blocks for HPC Systems.

Over the last several years, OpenHPC has emerged as a community-driven stack providing a variety of common, pre-built ingredients to deploy and manage an HPC Linux cluster including provisioning tools, resource management, I/O clients, runtimes, development tools, containers, and a variety of scientific libraries. Formed initially in November 2015 and formalized as a Linux Foundation project in June 2016, OpenHPC has been adding new software components and now supports multiple OSes and architectures. This presentation will present an overview of the project, currently available software, and highlight more recent changes along with general project updates and future plans.

Karl W. Schulz came to ICES and Dell Medical School from Intel Corp., where he was a principal engineer within the Datacenter Group. Prior to that, Schulz was an associate director of the Texas Advanced Computing Center. His current research interests include high-performance computing, numerical methods, modeling and simulation, uncertainty quantification, software architecture, performance optimization and extreme-scale programming. His work has been funded by grants through the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense and a variety of industrial sponsors. The work that Schulz has completed has been published in journals such as Industrial Engineering and Chemistry Research, AIAA Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets, and the Journal of Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering. He has also presented his work at a number of conferences and meetings nationally and internationally.
