OSC

Since 1987, OSC has been providing our clients services in four areas, or functions:

Supercomputing. OSC provides the computational power and storage that scientists need to meet their research goals.  Whether researchers need to harness the incredible power of a parallel processor cluster to better understand deep space, a vector processor machine to do weather modeling, or a mid-size shared memory processor system to model the human heart, OSC has the hardware and software solutions to meet their needs.

Research. A staff of high performance computing and networking research experts maintain active research programs in HPC and Networking, Homeland Security and Defense, Environmental Sciences, Engineering and Life Sciences. Our goals are to lead science and engineering research efforts, assist researchers with custom needs and collaborate with regional, national and international researchers in groundbreaking initiatives.

Education. OSC has a national reputation for its training and education programs. Staff teach faculty and student researchers through scientific computing workshops, one-on-one classes, and web-based portal training. Ohio students gain exposure to the world of high performance computing and networking during our annual summer institutes for young women in middle school and for junior and senior high school students. And, the statewide, virtual Ralph Regula School of Computational Science coordinates computational science and engineering education activities for all levels of learning.

Cyberinfrastructure. The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s cyberinfrastructure and software development researchers provide the user community with various high performance computing software options. This variety enables researchers to select parallel computing languages they most prefer, and just as important, it creates a test bed for exploring these systems. By taking a holistic approach to generating efficient supercomputing applications for researchers, the Center’s cyberinfrastructure and software development research capitalizes on all the components within the cycle of innovation — development, experimentation, and analysis - and continuously improves the services provided.

OSC Virtual Workshop: Using Parallel R at OSC

Date: 
Thursday, June 25, 2020 - 2:00pm to 5:00pm
Location: 

Ohio Supercomputer Center, 1224 Kinnear Road, Columbus, OH 43212

Virtual event, coordinates will be shared with registrants

This workshop will focus on how to run parallel R jobs using resources at the Ohio Supercomputer Center. This workshop will cover topics such as:

- How to access R and RStudio at OSC

- Running R using Rstudio OnDemand App vs Terminal App

- How to install R packages locally as well as details on packages available for multi-core and multi-node parallelism

- Hands-on examples for running parallel R

This is a virtual hands-on workshop and attendance will be limited.

 

XSEDE GPU Programming with OpenACC Workshop

Date: 
Tuesday, March 3, 2020 - 11:00am to 5:00pm
Location: 
Ohio Supercomputer Center
BALE Theatre
1224 Kinnear Road
Columbus, OH 43212

XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to present an OpenACC GPU programming workshop on Tuesday, March 3, 11am - 5pm.

OpenACC is the accepted standard using compiler directives to allow quick development of GPU capable codes using standard languages and compilers. It has been used with great success to accelerate real applications within very short development periods. This workshop assumes knowledge of either C or Fortran programming. It will have a hands-on component using the Bridges computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.

OSC Workshop: Using Parallel R at OSC

Date: 
Thursday, January 9, 2020 - 1:00pm to 5:00pm
Location: 

Ohio Supercomputer Center, 1224 Kinnear Road, Columbus, OH 43212

This workshop demonstrates how to run parallel R jobs using resources at Ohio Supercomputer Center. This workshop will cover topics such as accessing different version of R at OSC, Running R using Rstudio App vs terminal App, how to install R package locally, packages available for multi-core and multi-node parallelism and examples for running parallel R.

Fall SUG conference gathers researchers to the Ohio Supercomputer Center

Academic research provides students and staff alike the ability to pursue ground-breaking discoveries in numerous fields of study. These findings are propelled by Ohio universities’ access to high performance computing (HPC) through the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). Many of the state’s researchers gathered at OSC for the biannual Statewide Users Group (SUG) conference on Thursday to share their current research and innovations that have used HPC.
