IBM has released its first certified open-source software for Linux-based supercomputers, marking the tenth anniversary of its involvement with Linux.

Released at LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in San Francisco on Tuesday, the IBM HPC Open Software Stack is intended to ease the deployment of supercomputing clusters — in particular hybrid clusters that combine different processor types.

Releasing the software as open source allows the development community to take part in adding and testing new features, which could be important in the rapidly changing supercomputer field, IBM said.

The software is available immediately from a software repository run by the University of Illinois’s National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA).
