SUSE and Intel has come under a distribution partnership under which the chip giant will distribute SUSE LinuxEnterprise Server for High Performance Computing as an option for its recently introduced Intel HPC Orchestrator, an Intel-supported HPC system software stack.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is claimed to be the first commercially supported Linux to be included as an operating system option with Intel HPC Orchestrator system software stack.
Intel HPC Orchestrator, powered by SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for HPC is sought to reduce the burden of integrating and validating an HPC software stack – simplifies ongoing maintenance and support by aligning new components and optimizations driven by the OpenHPC community.
The Intel HPC Orchestrator with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for HPC allows customers to run a fully supported stack for HPC workloads. Leveraging one-stop joint support, SUSE and Intel will collaborate to optimize SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for Intel HPC system software. In addition, Intel uses the open source Open Build Service to build and release the Intel HPC Orchestrator system software.
“HPC is no longer just for specialized scientific projects,” said Michael Miller, President of Strategy, Alliances and Marketingfor SUSE. “Today HPC is converging with big data analytics, IoT, machine learning and robotics to open up a whole new era of computing potential. The SUSE and Intel collaboration on Intel HPC Orchestrator and OpenHPC puts this power within reach of a whole new range of industries and enterprises that need data-driven insights to compete and advance. This is an industry-changing approach that will rapidly accelerate HPC innovation and advance the state of the art in a way that creates real-world benefits for our customers and partners.”
Further stating, Charles Wuischpard, Vice President, Data Center Group, General Manager, High Performance Computing Platform Group, at Intel, said, “Intel HPC Orchestrator was developed to help organizations simplify the deployment, maintenance and support of their HPC systems. Enterprises which adopt the Intel HPC Orchestrator with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server can benefit from open source innovation while having the peace of mind of an integrated and validated stack of HPC software with Intel and SUSE support.”
Intel HPC Orchestrator with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server will be available from Intel in the fourth quarter of 2016.
