PSSC Labs Cluster Management System, CBeST to Migrate to Ubuntu in Light of Recent CentOS Stream Announcements

When Red Hat®, Inc. announced in late 2020 that they would soon be releasing CentOS Stream, the tech community responded with an uproar of confusion and uncertainty. With many wondering about the future of their workloads and the expiration of their current operating system, solution providers like PSSC Labs have had to adapt to our clients’ needs. (Read more about CentOS Stream here).

In response to this operating system shift, we’re making a few changes to help. First, our CBeST Cluster Management Software Stack will now be compatible with Ubuntu. This will offer our clients a path out of their current CentOS/Red Hat environments without affecting their current scientific and computing applications. PSSC Labs will continue to support a truly open source cluster management environment with all of the same key features and benefits that have been present before.
