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.

Columbus, OH - February 4, 2004 - The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has awarded five AMD Athlon clusters to Ohio research teams as part of its Cluster Ohio program. The high performance computing (HPC) clusters provided by OSC enable advanced research capabilities and promote Ohio's national competitiveness in science and technology discovery.

OSC Awards Second Cluster Ohio Grants to State Faculty

OSC's High Performance Computing (HPC) Division announces that Itanium computing clusters have been awarded to five Ohio higher education institutions. Nineteen researchers submitted proposals in the competition for academic cluster computers.

Faculty researchers were encouraged to submit proposals that highlighted cluster-style parallel computing, shared scientific visualization tools, and distributed network computation applications.

Ohio Supercomputer Center to boost state bioscience efforts, economic development with high performance computer expansion

The Ohio Supercomputer Center today announced the purchase of a $4 million expansion of its flagship supercomputing system, a strategic addition that will more than double the Center’s current computing power and memory, significantly increase the Center’s computational capacity dedicated to Ohio’s bioscience and research efforts and further increase the state’s competitive advantage.

OSC Prepares for Supercomputing 2002

For the past 14 years, OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) has made a place for itself in the world of high performance networking and computing. This year will be no exception when OSC showcases recent projects at Supercomputing 2002 (SC2002), an annual weeklong national supercomputing conference. SC2002 will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center on November 16-22.
