OSC announced yesterday that they are expanding their IBM Cluster 1350 to add more capacity to the center’s support for state bioscience efforts

The Ohio Supercomputer Center today announced the purchase of a $4 million expansion of its flagship supercomputing system, a strategic addition that will more than double the Center’s current computing power and memory, significantly increase the Center’s computational capacity dedicated to Ohio’s bioscience and research efforts and further increase the state’s competitive advantage.

The expansion will integrate a new generation of IBM hardware into OSC’s IBM Cluster 1350, which become operational in January 2008. Because of the pent-up demand by Ohio researchers for supercomputing access, the new system reached operational capacity in just three months.
