Introducing Ascend

OSC has officially launched Ascend, its new high performance computing (HPC) cluster designed to accommodate the growth of client work in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics and machine learning.

Since its founding in 1987, OSC has remained on the forefront of technology by continually upgrading and launching new high performance computing resources while expanding its services to an array of academic disciplines and industries. As Ohio focuses on heightening its scientific capabilities and workforce development strategies to ensure its economic success, OSC is becoming an even more critical state resource.
