"RED HAT WILL announce its first high performance computing optimised distro, the Red Hat HPC on 7 October. The distro is a step forward from the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux for HPC Compute Nodes.

"The current offerings, Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Compute Node subscription, are based on the standard distro but tailored for compute nodes running HPC workloads. The subscription is available for HPC compute nodes used in clusters with four or more systems.
