The Ohio Supercomputer Center announced yesterday that their new IBM Cluster 1350 is on line at 17 peak TFLOPS

With the deployment of the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s new IBM Cluster 1350, the State of Ohio is now home to the 65th fastest supercomputer in the world and the 9th fastest among U.S. academic supercomputer centers.

…”The new machine will accelerate research in vital areas such as advanced materials, energy, biosciences, manufacturing, defense, and aerospace applications,” said Stan Ahalt, executive director of OSC. “This was a critical acquisition for Ohio to remain competitive in the knowledge economy, and we hope to follow up with other acquisitions to catch up with our competitors in other states.”
