OSC and Ohio Board of Regents Announce Details about Sun Center of Excellence

What: OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) will announce details of its selection as a nationally recognized Sun Center of Excellence in High Performance Computing Environments (COE-HPCE).

Sun Microsystems partnership with OSC will strengthen Ohio's research and technology infrastructure, adding to the state's intellectual and economic competitiveness.

The Ohio Project

The Ohio Project is an effort to raise awareness of the power of computational problem solving by reaching out to potential industrial users of high performance computing (HPC) and networking or computational science methods. It has two goals:

Ohio Supercomputer Center Selects IBM For Massive Storage System

Columbus, OH and Armonk, NY -- Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announced today that it has selected IBM storage hardware and software to manage an immense repository of research data. Crucial data such as bioinformatics, which is generated through shared research applications provided by OSC, will reach thousands of researchers across the state of Ohio as a result of the agreement.

OSC Receives $6 Million for Springfield Supercomputing Center

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has received $6 million from the United States Department of Energy (DOE) to establish a supercomputing center in Springfield, Ohio. OSC will work closely with the DOE, the Department of Defense (DoD) center at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, and other local agencies to provide a high performance computing presence in southwestern Ohio.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Upgrades BALE Cluster

Students and researchers using the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) BALE Cluster can now enjoy faster rendering for visualizations and improved system stability. OSC's Ralph Regula School of Computational Science (RRSCS) will also be able to use the updated BALE training environment for a variety of computational science education activities. RRSCS is a statewide, virtual school focused on computational science.

ACTS experiments involving the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and OSU Advanced Computing Center for Arts and Design (ACCAD)

OSC and ACCAD are participating in two Advanced Communications Technology Satellite (ACTS) experiments, one which may greatly impact the Great Lakes Region by forecasting changing weather patterns; and one which will affect the delivery of medical services to rural and remote locations.
