Ohio Supercomputer Center staff members will be attending and presenting at the PEARC19 conference, July 28 – August 1 in Chicago.
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.
Eighteen Ohio high school students will be spending two weeks this summer at the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s 30th annual Summer Institute, June 16-28 at The Ohio State University. The students will investigate complex science and engineering problems while discovering career opportunities in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
A downtime for all HPC systems is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, May 21, 2019. The downtime will affect the Pitzer, Ruby and Owens Clusters, web portals, and HPC file servers. Login services, including my.osc.edu, access to storage and license server for hyperworks hosted by OSC will not be available during this time.
XSEDE HPC Workshop: MPI
While the impressive breakthroughs from Ohio’s leading research universities stem from the brilliant minds of students and faculty, the discoveries are greatly accelerated through the use of high perfo
XSEDE HPC Workshop: BIG DATA
April 2 - 3, 2019
XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to announce a two day Big Data workshop, to be held April 2-3, 2019.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently awarded funding to a team led by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) for further development of Open OnDemand, an open-source software platform supporting web-based access to high performance computing (HPC) services. The project team consists of representatives from OSC, the University at Buffalo and Virginia Tech.
XSEDE HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC
March 5, 2019
A downtime for all HPC systems is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Feb 5, 2019. The downtime will affect the Pitzer, Ruby and Owens Clusters, web portals and HPC file servers. Login services, including my.osc.edu, and access to storage will not be available during this time.
Ohio Supercomputer Center engineers and Dell EMC specialists are testing and preparing to deploy the center’s newest, most efficient supercomputer system, the liquid-cooled, Dell EMC-built Pitzer Cluster.
