Columbus, Ohio -- April 20, 2001 -- Silicon Graphics, Inc. (SGI) announced that it will donate $140,000 dollars worth of supercomputing systems to Ohio's minority institutions to kick off OSC's (Ohio Supercomputer Center) Cluster Ohio Project.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, August 22, 2006 — The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) was awarded $520,000 last week from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to help develop faster and smarter storage systems to improve and increase the processing power of high performance computing (HPC).
The three-year grant is part of the High-End Computing University Research Activity (HECURA) program, a national effort that promotes and funds research and education projects involving storage and retrieval of data in large-scale computing systems.
Researchers developed, tested modeling programs at the Ohio Supercomputer Center; awarded 15M compute hours on Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s newly installed “Jaguar”
Columbus, Ohio - March 3, 2009 - With complex computer modeling programs fine-tuned at the Ohio Supercomputer Center, a team guided by researchers from OSC and Louisiana State University will be among the first to road-test the world’s second-fastest supercomputer.
Grad student leverages supercomputer to fine-tune aerodynamics
Columbus, Ohio (July 21, 2011) – Building a battery-powered land speed vehicle capable of achieving a speed of 400+ miles per hour requires innovative components, corporatepartnerships, hours of diligent preparation and a powerful supercomputer.
The National Computational Science Alliance (NCSA) has awarded OSC $6,000 to fund an undergraduate researcher. The researcher will develop utilities and applications to support Access Grid user services.
OSC's HPC Division has announced that computing systems have been awarded to nine Ohio higher education institutions. Thirty-four researchers submitted proposals in the competition for academic cluster computers. In addition to the processing units, OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) will provide onsite maintenance, software, training, and system administration advice.
The Cluster Ohio Project, an initiative of OSC, the Ohio Board of Regents, and the OSC Statewide Users Group, is an effort to encourage faculty to build local computing clusters.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s Springfield, Ohio, facility will receive two new high-performance computing systems this summer, including the Cray X1 and the Cray XD1. Both systems will be installed in August, and will dramatically improve the efficiency and performance to meet the needs of the high-end user.
Itanium 2-based Supercomputer Running Linux to be Used by Ohio Universities and Private Industry
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Oct. 21, 2002 -- HP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced that the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will deploy an HP supercomputer based on a cluster of more than 150 Intel® Itanium® 2-based HP Workstation zx6000 systems.
Columbus, Ohio -- March 12, 1996 -- Ohio Supercomputer Center has released LAM 6.0, a major upgrade of its MPI implementation for UNIX-based clusters. The software is freely available from http://www.osc.edu/lam.html.
Among the new features in LAM 6.0 are an early implementation of MPI, process spawning, dynamic processor resources and fault tolerance.
LAM 6.0 runs out-of-the-box on IP networks connecting any of the major vendors' workstations in any combination. LINUX is also supported.
