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.

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.

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.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Expands Ohio's Computational Resources Eligibility to Full-Time Research Scientists

COLUMBUS, Ohio – November 30, 2006 – Now Ohio’s research scientists and faculty members alike can use the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) high performance computing resources (HPC). Graduate and postdoctoral students enjoy the same access through their professors. 

Unlike many computing facilities, OSC’s liberal user policy puts some of the world’s most powerful supercomputing resources at the fingertips of academic researchers and computational scientists – resources that were once exclusively reserved for tenure-track faculty members.

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.
