KISTI and OSC collaborate from opposite sides of the Earth
Officials from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) Supercomputing Center and the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) recently signed a collaboration agreement at the SC09 show in Portland, Oregan, USA. The agreement is designed to enhance the offerings of both organisations’ industrial outreach programmes, OSC’s Blue Collar Computing and KISTI’s Small and Medium Business Supercomputing.
'This sort of strategic international partnership enhances Ohio’s reputation as a wellspring for innovation, discovery and leading-edge business growth,' said Lisa Patt-McDaniel, director of the Ohio Department of Development. 'These high-tech organisations deserve commendation for their efforts to enhance the business and manufacturing environments in Ohio and Korea.'
KISTI’s Small and Medium Business Supercomputing (SMB Supercomputing) programme partners with companies to apply high performance computing to real-world problems faced by industry. The programme provides resources and technical support to university and institute researchers to solve industrial problems.
