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.

XSEDE HPC Workshop: GPU Programming Using OpenACC
December 6, 2016
A downtime is upcoming for the Owens cluster only starting Friday, Oct.
As part of the AweSim program, TotalSim USA has developed a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) app that allows college students on Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) teams to perform aerodynamics simulations on the Ohio Supercomputer Center and get wind tunnel-like data for development of their race cars. The app itself meshes geometry, configures solver settings, generates output visualizations and organizes results so students from such teams at The Ohio State University, the Univesity of Akron and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis can focus on designing and improving their Formula SAE cars without being forced to become CFD experts.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (Oct. 15, 2016) – Emily A. Carter, Ph.D., will deliver the 2016 Russ Pitzer Symposium Lecture, speaking on “Sustainable Energy Phenomena from First Principles: From Fuel Cells to Fusion.”
XSEDE HPC Workshop: BIG DATA
November 1, 2016
XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center are pleased to announce a one day Big Data workshop, to be held November 1, 2016. This workshop will focus on topics such as Hadoop and Spark. This workshop is part of Data Analytics Month @ Ohio State.
More than ever, academic and manufacturing researchers from across Ohio are turning to the high performance computing power offered by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). On Thursday, an abundance of that research was on display at OSC’s semi-annual Statewide Users Group (SUG) meeting.
Attendees shared and gained insight into topics ranging from auto safety and dark matter to gene flow and a myriad of chemistry-related topics. They also heard two keynote addresses, and the competition portion of the meeting featured 27 posters and 12 flash talks.
