The Open Group works towards enabling access to integrated information within and between enterprises, based on open standards and global interoperability. It is a vendor-neutral and technology-neutral consortium that works with customers, suppliers, consortia and other standard bodies to capture, understand and address current and emerging requirements, establish policies and share best practices.
Livermore Computing Center is home to a first class computational infrastructure that supports the computing requirements of the Laboratory's research scientists. A particular focus of the Center is to develop solutions (in collaboration with tri-lab partners at Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories) that will create a functional problem-solving environment for high-performance computers under the Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) program. Another goal is to provide leveraged, cost-effective high-performance computing to multiple programs and independent researchers under the Multiprogrammatic and Institutional Computing (M&IC) program.
