Title: HPC Cluster Operating Systems Options

-Karl W. Schulz – University of Texas, OpenHPC Project Lead
Description: With the recent announcement from IBM/Redhat that CentOS 8 will be EOL at the end 2021 and CentOS 7 in 2024 many HPC systems professionals now face the prospect of having to migrate off the downstream distribution and either adopt CentOS 8 Stream or purchase licenses for RHEL. There are some institutions where clusters run other operating systems, most notably Cray has deployed SuSE as part of their Cray environment and NVIDIA DGX boxes notably run more smoothly with Ubuntu. Our January meeting we will have a panel discussion on this topic and explore experiences using/migrating to/from other distributions on their HPC resources.
