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.

SUG conference shares updates, highlights research

Exciting innovations and new research frontiers are breaking through every day in Ohio, and attendees of the fall Statewide Users Group Conference at the Ohio Supercomputer Center on Thursday got a preview of some innovations to come.

SUG is a volunteer group composed of the Ohio university faculty who provide OSC’s leadership with program and policy advice and direction to ensure a productive environment for research.

Ruby Partial Downtime September 24, 2018

Download to your calendar.
Date: 
Monday, September 24, 2018 -
8:00am to 12:00pm
Location: 

Ohio Supercomputer Center

An approximately 4-hour downtime for part of the Ruby system is scheduled starting from 8 a.m. Monday, September 24, 2018. This will effect Ruby's login nodes and quick batch so users will not be able to access Ruby during this time, either via SSH or OnDemand. A portion of Ruby's compute nodes will not be affected and will continue to run jobs previously submitted.  Other OSC services, including Oakley and Owens Clusters, web portals, and HPC file servers will be available.
