Distro choices are a matter of preference in general. Give that al of the software is open source you can run any options/software on any distro with varying amounts of work. I believe when building large clusters you will always have a lot of customisation to do so aside from picking one of the cluster specific distros you mentioned you will end up with a highly custom setup. To this end there probably is no advantage to using Slack/SUSE/Red Hat etc aside from preference.
