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.

RNA signaling

The rise of antibiotic resistance among common infectious bacteria is a worrisome health threat that has many scientists looking for a solution. Jennifer Hines, Ph.D., professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Ohio University, is one of the few looking to ribonucleic acid (RNA) structures for new drug discovery. Her research group is studying a key regulator for bacterial gene expression made up of RNA, called a riboswitch, that could be crucial in designing new drugs to kill bacteria.

Ohio Supercomputer Center to host free webinar on innovative web-based portal

Columbus, Ohio – The Ohio Supercomputer Center will host a free webinar to discuss topics related to its Open OnDemand software project at 2 p.m. on Jan. 29. The Customizing and Extending Open OnDemand Webinar will feature live demonstrations on OnDemand installations from different sites, including the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and Tufts University. OSC experts will provide examples of how to configure OnDemand and extend the installation with custom branding and applications.

Date: 
Saturday, December 9, 2017 -
11:00am to 3:00pm
Location: 

Ohio Supercomputer Center

An outage of Globus service is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, December 9, 2017 for scheduled upgrades from Globus. Active file transfers will be suspended during this time and they will resume when the Globus service is restored. Users trying to access the service at globus.org will see a maintenance page until the service is restored. 

Please contact oschelp@osc.edu if you have any questions or need more information.

Disaster relief

Off the top of your head, how many languages can you name? Ten? Twenty? More?

It is estimated there are more than 7,000 languages worldwide. For those involved in disaster relief efforts, the breadth and variety of that number can be overwhelming, especially when addressing areas with low resources.
