OpenHPC has announced the release of OpenHPC v2.1

OpenHPC has announced the release of OpenHPC v2.1. This is a significant update that targets support for two new major OS distro versions: CentOS8 and OpenSUSE Leap 15.  As the OpenHPC 2.x series targets major new distro versions, please note that it is not intended to be backwards compatible with the previous OpenHPC 1.3.x series.  Instead, OpenHPC 2.x is intended for fresh installs with the newer distro versions (or containers based on these distro versions).

This 2.0 release supersedes the previous 2.0RC1 version. Users who are already using 2.0RC1 can upgrade their local packages to the final release.

Please see the Release Notes and documentation for more detailed information along with important highlights for this release.

OpenHPC is a collaborative, community effort that initiated from a desire to aggregate a number of common ingredients required to deploy and manage High Performance Computing (HPC) Linux clusters including provisioning tools, resource management, I/O clients, development tools, and a variety of scientific libraries. Packages provided by OpenHPC have been pre-built with HPC integration in mind with a goal to provide re-usable building blocks for the HPC community. Over time, the community also plans to identify and develop abstraction interfaces between key components to further enhance modularity and interchangeability. The community includes representation from a variety of sources including software vendors, equipment manufacturers, research institutions, supercomputing sites, and others.

This community works to integrate a multitude of components that are commonly used in HPC systems, and are freely available for open source distribution. We are grateful for the efforts undertaken by the developers and maintainers of these upstream communities that provide key components used in HPC around the world today, and for which this OpenHPC community works to integrate and validate as a cohesive software stack.
