Ohio Supercomputer Center Selects IBM To Provide New High Performance Computing Solution

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announced today the upgrade of its high performance computing (HPC) capacity with the acquisition of the IBM Cluster 1350.   This new system is projected to be one of the top 50 supercomputers in the world, making OSC among the top 10 academic supercomputing centers.

OSC Showcases Initiatives at International Supercomputing Conference

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will showcase its Blue Collar Computing and Third Frontier Network (TFN) initiatives by highlighting these projects and more at Supercomputing 2005 (SC|05). A week-long international supercomputing conference, SC|05 is the world's leading event for high performance computing and research, and is a hotbed of collaboration opportunities. The conference will be held at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle, Washington, on November 12-18.

Cluster Ohio Proposal Deadline Extended

 

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.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Offers New Workshop for Users with Large Datasets

Spending two days at a new Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) workshop may save you hundreds of hours and make your computing life easier.

Whether your discipline is bioinformatics or astronomy, the OSC workshop, "I/O Approaches for Data Intensive Computing," is specially designed for users with extremely large datasets. It will be held on May 9 and 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in OSC's BALE theater and is offered at no charge. The workshop and materials are geared toward those with parallel programming experience, using MPI in either C or Fortran.
