Do you have an HPC project/application in mind?  Several Guix
contributors have had success in deploying Guix onto clusters and using
Guix for their workflows.

Just a few observations with regard to the system's hardware: Using the
system's Nvidia Tesla GPUs might be difficult from core Guix, you'd
likely need to package cudatoolkit yourself. Ricardo was going to add
Infiniband support to our OpenMPI package soon.  As far as I can see,
that website doesn't mention the processor architecture being used.
But this website
mentions the supercomputer is using OpenPOWER processors.  If that's
correct, there'd be a bit more work to do to get Guix to target it,
since we don't support that architecture yet, though I recall a few
users on IRC asking about it in relation to the Talos workstation,

You could maybe also bring this up on address@hidden
