Columbus, Ohio -- 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.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — April 9, 2007 — In preparation for the arrival of a new high performance computing system, the Ohio Supercomputer Center is providing three parallel computing workshops this spring.
The incoming computational system is projected to have 10 times the performance of the largest existing Ohio Supercomputer Center cluster. The IBM e1350 Compute Cluster will have 963 nodes and over 4,000 processor cores, allowing scientists to run their parallelized code on hundreds or thousands of processors.
Columbus, Ohio -- January 14, 1994 -- Software development specialists at the Ohio Supercomputer Center have released Local Area Multiprocessor (LAM) to the parallel processing and cluster computing community. LAM has been ported to several leading UNIX machines such as Sun, SGI, RS/6000, DEC APX and to Cray running UNICOS. LAM is freely available under a GNU license via anonymous ftp from tbag.osc.edu or from gopher at gopher.osc.edu. URL is gopher: //gopher.osc.edu:70/Software/Trollius.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – January 23, 2007 – 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.
COLUMBUS, Ohio and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (Aug. 8, 2001) - OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) and SGI (NYSE: SGI) announce the launch of a new cluster from SGI utilizing the Itanium-based Silicon Graphics® 750 system, making this cluster one of the fastest in the world.
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.
