Tech Specs

HPC Module

SUSE makes adopting HPC easier to implement by adding packages to the HPC module. This module is intended to simplify deployment and management of HPC environments by providing a number of fully supported HPC packages to SUSE Linux Enterprise HPC customers.

These packages were built and tested by SUSE and are provided at no additional cost with the SUSE Linux Enterprise High Performance Computing support subscription. All of the packages are open source and many are based on packages from OpenHPC. The HPC module is provided for customers using X86-64 and Arm AArch64 platforms and is available to customers with SLE HPC subscriptions.

The module structure allows SUSE to deliver additions and enhancements to HPC packages more frequently than is possible via Service Packs. Here is the list of packages and release numbers available in the HPC module currently:
