Red Hat Cluster Suite (RHCS) is a high availability cluster solution
built upon OpenAIS plus other RH elements. It's an entirely different
thing to HPC.

Red Hat HPC Solution is based upon Lava, which I *believe* to be an OSS
version of Platform's LSF resource manager. It also includes management
and provisioning tools, but I couldn't tell you what those are.

Personally, I've built a number of clusters running RHEL, but usually
with TORQUE+Maui or Moab, plus one or two with the commercial Platform
LSF or PBS Pro (depending on customers). I probably ought to at least
look at it, but I've not yet touched RH's HPC offering.
