OpenSolaris HPC Community

Many thanks to the InsideHPC blog for bringing us this story:
“The folks over at the OpenSolaris community have dedicated a community focus group to high performance computing. The community is designed to spark interest and exchange notes on utilizing the OpenSolaris platform for high performance computing. The community page lists four main purposes:
.: Provide a home for the OpenSolaris HPC distro
.: Highlight existing features and future enhancements relevant for high-performance computing
.: Provide a forum to discuss issues and possible solutions to problems faced by HPC developers
.: Provide pointers to pertinent resources and tools currently available.
The community page provides a list of participating development groups, including GridEngine, Xen, ZFS, pNFS, SAM-QFS, OpenMPI and Lustre. Thanks to Dan Templeton for raising this on the SGE mailing list.” Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
