The Oakley Cluster's 2012 deployment coincides with the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the center in 1987 to place Ohio universities and industry at the forefront of computational research. OSC is a member of the Ohio Technology Consortium, the technology arm of the Ohio Board of Regents, and is located on the west campus of The Ohio State University.

We are combining models and observations together to describe and understand the human-caused climate change happening in the Arctic. This study is being done at unprecedentedly high spatial resolution. The project, called the Arctic System Reanalysis (ASR), is a massive computational task. The much faster processor speed, the increased number of cores, and higher performance I/O that will be provided by Oakley Cluster in comparison to the system we are currently using will result in ASR being completed on time and in budget.

We started a U.S. sister company to a British engineering firm that specializes in automotive fluid dynamics and were deciding whether North Carolina or car racing mecca Indianapolis was a better fit than Central Ohio. But the proximity of auto manufacturers, support from TechColumbus and, perhaps most important, the ability to tap into the state-run Ohio Supercomputer Center for complex simulations drew our firm to the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center in 2009. The impact of a the speed improvement on Oakley is two-fold; it's simply getting the answers back quicker, but it's value too because of the way you pay for the compute re
