Assisted Science and Technology


CCAST will soon be joining forces with the Open Science Grid (OSG) .  OSG is a Consortium which facilitates distributed (mostly high-throughput) computing and which aggregates power of tens of thousands of computers, running Linux operating systems, scattered around the globe.  Through CCAST participation and opportunistic sharing out of its resources to OSG, NDSU researchers will be able to scavenge the unused compute cycles on the OSG network and use them in their work.  Please visit this page often for updates on CCAST’s integration with OSG.
