I realise we can all Google, but

"The use case for this driver is for single tenant clouds such as a
high-performance computing cluster"

Aha. So we should now be talking about 'Single tenant clouds' for HPC.
But I think a better name would be 'lonely clouds'

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er jobs and queues,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden CPUs;
Beside the API, beneath the stacks,
Fluttering and dancing in the racks.
