Linux Foundation to form the High-Performance Software Foundation
The new group will focus on building and advancing a portable core software stack for high-performance computing.

The Linux Foundation has created the new High Performance Software Foundation (HPSF). Through a series of technical projects, HPSF aims to build, promote, and advance a portable software stack for high-performance computing (HPC) by increasing adoption, lowering barriers to contribution, and supporting development efforts.

Already, HPSF has received support across the HPC landscape, including major cloud providers, vendors and organizations, including: Amazon Web Services, Argonne National Laboratory, CEA, CIQ, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Intel, Kitware, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, NVIDIA, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, and the University of Oregon.

Drawing from supporting organizations and community members, HPSF will set up a technical advisory committee (TAC) to manage working groups tackling various HPC topics, and will follow a governance model based on the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

HPSF representatives will attend ACM/IEEE Supercomputing Conference (SC23) on Monday, November 13 for a kickoff presentation at 8:00 pm. The presentation will happen at the DOE booth on the show floor during the opening Gala, with words from HPSF founders and supporters. HPSF representatives will also be available to talk to prospective projects and members.
