Hello HPC Fans. A few weeks ago we updated our images on Microsoft Azure to 8.5. Today we are proud to announce the general availability of AlmaLinux OS for Azure HPC based on AlmaLinux OS 8.5. This was a tremendous team effort starting from community requests and developed in collaboration between the AlmaLinux community and the team over at our amazing sponsors Microsoft Azure. We had a couple of goals when we set out on this project.
