HP Supercomputer to be Deployed at Ohio Supercomputer Center for Advanced Research

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.

Major Upgrade of Its MPI Implementation for UNIX-based Clusters

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.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Orders Cray T3D Massively Parallel Processing System

Columbus, Ohio -- December 20, 1993 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and Cray Research, Inc. (NYSE: CYR) today announced an agreement under which OSC will acquire a 32-processor, "entry-level" version of the CRAY T3D massively parallel processing (MPP) system. The new CRAY system will fit well into OSC's existing Y-MP8/864 and Y-MP-EL/332 computing environment. The agreement calls for OSC and Cray Research to use the new systems to collaborate on advanced research projects including medical imaging. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Troy Baer featured in the Linux Journal

Columbus, Ohio -- September 4, 2001 -- Troy Baer, OSC Systems Developer and Engineer, recently published the article, "Integrating a Linux Cluster into a Production High-Performance Computing Environment," in the July 2001 edition of the Linux Journal. Baer takes you on a journey that brings the "brain" home from SGI, and provides insight into installing and using the cluster.

OSC Purchases Intel Pentium 4 Cluster to Update Systems

OSC is updating its hardware with an Intel Pentium 4 (P4) cluster to be installed later this month. Replacing the AMD Athlon cluster, the P4 doubles the current system’s power with a sizable increase in speed.

With a theoretical peak of 2,457 gigaflops, the P4 cluster contains 256 dual-processor Pentium IV Xeon systems with four gigabytes of memory per node and 20 terabytes of aggregate disk space. It will be connected via a gigabit Ethernet and use Voltair InfiniBand 4x HCA, and a Voltair ISR 9600 InfiniBand switch router for high-speed interconnect.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Reduces State Industrial Computing Fee to $1

COLUMBUS , Ohio – April 17, 2006 – Ohio industrial clients will now save money when they compute at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). Effective April 1, 2006, OSC’s business clients can use some of the most advanced high performance computing (HPC) resources for $1 per CPU hour.

When computing, OSC’s industrial clients typically accrue processing charges. The new rate gives industrial clients the same unlimited access to OSC’s state-of-the-art hardware -- the Cray X1, Intel Pentium 4 Xeon Cluster, and Intel Itanium 2 Cluster -- for less.

OSC Finishes First Phase of Move

Columbus, Ohio - April 30, 2002 -- OSC is gearing up for its second phase in moving supercomputing and memory systems to a new home. The new systems will be consolidated in a secure environment at the State of Ohio Computing Center (SOCC) in Columbus, Ohio, providing OSC with a secure and reliable facility with custom-based infrastructure.
