Red Hat will be at Supercomputing 2021 both in-person and online! Stop by the Red Hat booth (2027) or our virtual sponsor page to talk with our experts and learn how we can help your organization.  In-person, visit our three in-booth demo pods to learn about our product portfolio that allows you to run a variety of workloads, at many different scales and increase the pace of innovation. If you're attending virtually, check out our sponsored speaking session! 

Supercomputing is no longer the domain of custom-built hardware and software, and Red Hat is leading the change. From the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform tailored for high-performance computing (HPC) workloads to massively scalable, open hybrid cloud infrastructure powered by industry-leading OpenShift Kubernetes platform, OpenStack IaaS, and Ceph storage along with the Ansible based management and automation technologies, these technologies run seamlessly on a variety of architectures.  They are underlying leading supercomputers and playing an important part in driving HPC into new markets and use cases, including AI, enterprise computing, quantum computing, and cloud computing.

Please locate our booth #2027 on the floorplan and plan to stop by!
