Ohio Supercomputer Center Posts

When the Dell/Intel-Xeon Owens Cluster is completely up and running later this year, the Ohio Supercomputer Center will have deployed the most powerful supercomputer system in the 29-year history of the OSC.

However, before this new system can take off, there’s the significant undertaking of installing this sparkling new system. And to put it mildly, it’s not as simple as opening a laptop box and plugging it in.

What all does it take to set up the Owens Cluster? Get a great overview of this project in our newest blog. 

 

The democratization of Computer Aided Engineering was a hot topic at the recent 2016 NAFEMS meeting in Seattle. And while many approaches to wider access to modeling and simulation are emerging, a clear path hasn't quite been decided upon yet. One thing that is clear is AweSim plans to be part of the solution, here's how: 

 

The 27th Summer Institute is less than a week away, meaning 16 high school students from across Ohio are about to descend on the Ohio Supercomputer Center. As we enter the final countdown to the camp, it's the perfect time to let the incoming students know what to expect from the two-week camp. And while we can share with you what to pack and the daily schedule, there are some other things incoming students should definitely know to make the experience smoother and better. 

Recently, AweSim Director Alan Chalker had the opportunity to sit in on Desktop Engineering's roundtable discussion, "Supercomputing for the Rest of Us." The goal of the roundtable was to discuss the democratization of high performance computing modeling and simulation. It turned out to be an excellent platform to continue to spread the word about how the AweSim program is working to lower the perception and reality of exclusivity to this powerful tool, from which all manufacturers can benefit. 

I recently spent an afternoon tinkering around in the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s Interface Lab. What felt to me like a mind-opening trip to a video game playground is actually a hub of innovation and groundbreaking discovery for computer and medical scientists. This second of three installments details the Virtual Temporal Bone project.
