OSC Announces High Performance Computing Partnership with Edison Welding Institute

 

Joining high performance computing (HPC) applications with small- and medium-sized companies is one step closer to reality as the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and the Edison Welding Institute (EWI) announced a partnership agreement today.  As part of its innovative Blue Collar Computing initiative, OSC will provide remote portal access of HPC systems and software to EWI welding applications—a tremendous cost-saving resource that will reach engineers at over 200 companies. 

OSC Leads OpenFPGA Consortium

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is leading an international effort to promote the use of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) in high-level and enterprise applications. The OpenFPGA consortium will develop and share critical information, technologies and best practices for using its applications.

OSC announced this project at the Manchester Reconfigurable Computing Conference earlier this year. The conference united developers and hardware manufacturers with academic, government and commercial organizations to advance the use of FPGA technology in high-level applications.

OSC Requests Proposals for Second Phase of Cluster Ohio Project

To promote parallel computing among Ohio faculty, OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) is soliciting a second round of faculty research proposals. OSC will distribute Itanium (64-bit) systems to winning participants.

"OSC wants to create an environment for faculty members who are willing to port or develop software for parallel systems. To do this, OSC will provide a number of cluster systems to awardees," said Leslie Southern, Interim HPC Director. "We are looking for faculty proposals on software development for clusters of Itanium-based computer systems."

OSC-Springfield, Raytheon Collaborate on Computing Technology Development

The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s Springfield Ohio facility (OSC-Springfield) has signed an agreement with Raytheon’s Intelligence and Information Systems business to investigate new technologies using OSC’s high performance computing and storage systems and Ohio’s new Third Frontier Network (TFN).

OSC-Springfield Director Kevin Wohlever said a number of high performance and data-intensive computing technologies will be investigated using Raytheon’s systems. The agreement is effective for the remainder of 2004, with contracts renewable in both 2005 and 2006.

University of Hawai'i Awarded Multi-million Dollar Contract for Maui Supercomputing Center

The Air Force Research Laboratory announced today that the University of Hawai'i (UH) has been awarded the contract to operate and manage the Maui Supercomputing Center, located at the Maui Research and Technology Park in Kihei. The contract, which will begin October 1, 2001, may be extended for up to 10 years and has a potential value of $181 million. This is the largest single contract award in the history of the University of Hawai'i.
