Columbus, OH - February 4, 2004 - The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has awarded five AMD Athlon clusters to Ohio research teams as part of its Cluster Ohio program. The high performance computing (HPC) clusters provided by OSC enable advanced research capabilities and promote Ohio's national competitiveness in science and technology discovery.

OSC Awards Second Cluster Ohio Grants to State Faculty

OSC's High Performance Computing (HPC) Division announces that Itanium computing clusters have been awarded to five Ohio higher education institutions. Nineteen researchers submitted proposals in the competition for academic cluster computers.

Faculty researchers were encouraged to submit proposals that highlighted cluster-style parallel computing, shared scientific visualization tools, and distributed network computation applications.

OSC, University of Toledo, and EISC to Sponsor Forum on Applications of High Performance Computing to Manfacturing Processing Flows and Product Design.

OSC, in cooperation with the University of Toledo and the Edison Industrial Systems Center will host a meeting in Toledo on September 30, from 9:30 to 2:30 on the applications of computing technology to product design and manufacturing process flows. A followup meeting will be held on October 21 at the same location to discuss possible research agendas that will be produced using information from the first meeting.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Enters Next Generation of Computing Power

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) takes delivery today of a 32 processor CRAY T3D -- an entry-level massively parallel processing (MPP) system. The system will be closely coupled with a CRAY Y-MP2E parallel vector supercomputer system installed at the same time. The new CRAY system fits well into OSC's existing CRAY Y-MP8/864 and Y-MP-EL/332 computing environment.

OSC and Ohio Board of Regents Announce Details about Sun Center of Excellence

What: OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) will announce details of its selection as a nationally recognized Sun Center of Excellence in High Performance Computing Environments (COE-HPCE).

Sun Microsystems partnership with OSC will strengthen Ohio's research and technology infrastructure, adding to the state's intellectual and economic competitiveness.

The Ohio Project

The Ohio Project is an effort to raise awareness of the power of computational problem solving by reaching out to potential industrial users of high performance computing (HPC) and networking or computational science methods. It has two goals:
