The Portland Group, Inc. (PGI) and OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) today announced that OSC has acquired 200 copies of PGI Workstation, PGI's suite of parallel Fortran, C and C++ compilers and tools for Linux workstations. The announcement was made from SC99, the world's largest conference for high performance computing sponsored by ACM SIGARCH and the IEEE Computer Society.
The Cold War may be over, but the need for well-trained government scientists and engineers lives on. The Ohio Supercomputer Center is helping the federal government keep its cadre of high performance computing specialists current on state of the art computers. And it's doing it right here in Ohio.

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announces that it has installed a powerful new computer -- an IBM RISC System/6000* Scalable POWERparallel Systems * SP2. As a valuable supercomputing resource for universities and businesses across Ohio, OSC's goal is to provide its users with the best computing technology available. The IBM parallel computer joins an already impressive array of high-performance parallel and vector/parallel computing platforms available at the Center.
To promote parallel computing among Ohio faculty, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), its Statewide Users Group, and the Ohio Board of Regents are soliciting a third round of Cluster Ohio faculty research proposals. OSC will distribute Athlon AMD computer system clusters -- complete with hardware, software programming environment, and maintenance -- to this year’s Cluster Ohio awardees. Proposals are due on January 14, 2004.
The 45th Annual Cray User Group Conference held on May 12-16, 2003 and hosted by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), was deemed a success by more than 160 attendees.
CUG2003 was held at the Hyatt on Capitol Square in downtown Columbus.
This year’s theme, “Flight to Insight,” was chosen to honor Ohio’s rich heritage and numerous contributions to the aerospace industry. The conference also highlighted the centennial anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ flight.
