SUSE, Intel collaborate on HPC stack


The Germany-based GNU/Linux company SUSE has teamed up with Intel with the latter to offer its server distribution, which is optimised for high-performance computing (HPC), as an option on the Intel HPC Orchestrator, an HPC system software stack.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is the first commercially supported distribution to be offered along with this stack.

HPC Orchestrator is Intel's version of the OpenHPC platform which is an open source framework for operating HPC clusters. OpenHPC has been developed under the aegis of the Linux Foundation.

Running SLES on the HPC Orchestrator stack will make access to relevant business data much faster, it is claimed in a SUSE statement.

Intel will use SUSE's Open Build Service to build and release the Intel HPC Orchestrator system software. OBS allows anyone to build packages for any distribution, any supported architecture, yielding binaries and even installation media.

The statement quoted SUSE's president of strategy, alliances and marketing, Michael Miller, as saying: "HPC is no longer just for specialised scientific projects. 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."

From Intel's side, Charles Wuischpard, vice-president of the data centre group and general manager of the high performance computing platform group, said: "Intel HPC Orchestrator was developed to help organisations 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 can be purchased from Intel in Q4, 2016.
