Yes, this page has been quite empty since it's creation. This has primarily been due to all those busy Giraffe members scurrying about racing towards our first internal BETA release and then ultimately our first actual community release. We're not quite there yet, but it might be nice to let people know what we're actually doing.
It's been recognized that Linux has a huge foothold in the High Performance Computing community, and as a result we're here to help bring to life Sun's Linux HPC Software Stack. In doing this, our mantra is pretty simple: Open Source. We're looking to empower the HPC community with a Linux stack focused on deploying anywhere from 10's to 1,000's of nodes, utilizing open source tools to accomplish this.
With all of that said, keep an eye on this space as we get closer to our first release. Not only will this be used to talk about our releases, but as we come across cool things, hard problems, anything else, we'll talk about them here as well. In addition, we have an open email list that anyone can subscribe to. Just follow this link and get signed up: firstname.lastname@example.org .
