Linux Foundation to Form High Performance Software Foundation


The foundation will advance a portable HPC software stack.

The Linux Foundation (LF) has announced its intent to form the 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),” the announcement says.

Initial projects within the foundation include:

  • Spack – A flexible HPC package manager.
  • Kokkos – A performance-portable programming model for writing modern C++ applications in a hardware-agnostic way.
  • Apptainer – A container system and image format specifically designed for secure high-performance computing.
  • WarpX – A performance-portable Particle-in-Cell code with advanced algorithms that won the 2022 Gordon Bell Prize.

The formation of HPSF is expected to be completed in May 2024.
