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.
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.
Columbus, OH -- September 4, 2008 -- You asked for a better way to manage your OSC accounts, and we listened. We're pleased to announce the launch of OSC's PI Portal, a user-friendly, web-based service that enables you to conveniently manage information regarding user accounts, funding and publications information.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – August 6, 2004 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has awarded a supercomputer cluster to Case Western Reserve University as part of OSC’s “Cluster Ohio” program. Delivered on June 28 to Case’s physics department, the cluster was part of a larger system divided among several institutions statewide.
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.
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.
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.
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.
