From what I know, there isn't much difference in performance between Linux Distributions. Usually what weighs more on the choice for cluster operating systems is the maintenance, stability and security, as well as compatibility with the hardware.
Usually the main Linux Distributions for clusters are (not in order):
While with the distributions on the list above, you can maintain the same installation for 5 or more years. And in the case of Debian, you can easily upgrade from one stable version to the next one.
