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 Wins Major U.S. Department of Defense Contract

The U.S. Department of Defense announced on Friday that a $108 million contract has been awarded to OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center), Mississippi State University (MSU) and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).

OSC competed nationally in conjunction with the other two centers for the contract. This award to support the High Performance Computing Modernization Program is one of the largest in Defense Department history to further academic research and training.

SGI Demonstrates Itanium Based System at SC2000

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., -- SGI (NYSE: SGI) SGI demonstrated that it is One Step Ahead in the development of the Linux and applications software environments for Itanium-based products. Using a cluster of 16 Itanium processors SGI demonstrated a pre-release of SGI Itanium software, built on TurboLinux, comprising SGI Pro64 compilers, Advanced Clustering Environment (ACE) and system administration tools.

OSC and OhioLINK Partnerships Through State Resources

 

Is two better than one? It is when you're combining two of the state's best resources. The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and OhioLINK offer Ohio's colleges and universities state-of-the-art computing, networking, and information programs that lead the nation in cost-effective delivery of high-quality services. Together, they offer a powerful problem-solving environment. Ohio has great potential as an information state with these two shared resources.
