The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), through a partnership with IBM, has expanded their storage capacity by 8.6 petabytes. This addition almost tripled the Center’s high performance storage capacity, ensuring researchers across Ohio will have access to cutting-edge secure storage options.
Soon, researchers throughout Ohio and beyond will have access to larger and even more secure storage options when it comes to housing their voluminous and potentially sensitive data.
A paper authored by staff members of the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) earned best paper honors in the Facilitation of Advanced Research Computing track at the Practice & Experience in Advanced Research Computing Conference (PEARC), being held July 28–Aug. 1 in Chicago.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently awarded funding to a team led by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) for further development of Open OnDemand, an open-source software platform supporting web-based access to high performance computing (HPC) services. The project team consists of representatives from OSC, the University at Buffalo and Virginia Tech.
An innovative web-based portal for accessing high performance computing services has matured beyond the beta phase and now is available to HPC centers worldwide.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has launched Open OnDemand 1.0, an open-source version of OSC OnDemand, the Center’s online, single-point-of-entry application for HPC services.
J.C. “Jesse” Owens possessed both elite speed and raw power, which he honed and blended on his way to winning four Olympic gold medals in 1936.
Those impressive traits—elite speed and raw power—now are shared by the newest and most powerful supercomputer in the history of the Ohio Supercomputer Center, a system which, appropriately, is named for the late Ohio-raised sprinter.
Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey and other dignitaries visited Ohio State’s west campus today to help unveil the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s newest supercomputer platform – the HP/Intel Xeon Phi Ruby Cluster.
Marcio Faerman, a scientific research manager at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), recently received a $10,000 grant from a joint partnership between The Ohio State University and the Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).
Faerman’s research, one of 24 projects awarded under this new program, focuses on the beginning stages of building a digital bridge for research collaboration between OSU and the Sao Paulo campuses. Ohio State and FAPESP are each contributing $700,000 to begin the five-year program to support research and innovation.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) hosted the first meeting of the MVAPICH Users Group, a broad array of users, system administrators, researchers, engineers and students who share an interest in the MVAPICH open-source library of communications standards used internally by many high performance computing (HPC) systems.
Engineers from the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) have developed an innovative access mechanism that is helping researchers to bridge the chasm between the convenience of a web interface and the complexity of high performance computing systems.
