OpenHPC Pedal Put to the Compute Metal


The ultimate success of any platform depends on the seamless integration of diverse components into a synergistic whole – well, as much as is possible in the real world – while at the same time being flexible enough to allow for components to be swapped out and replaced by others to suit personal preferences.

Is OpenHPC, the open source software stack aimed at simulation and modeling workloads that was spearheaded by Intel a year ago, going to be the dominant and unifying platform for high performance computing? Will OpenHPC be analogous to the Linux distributions that grew up around the open source Linux operating system kernel, in that it creates a platform and helps drive adoption in the datacenters of the world because it makes HPC easier and uniform?
