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.

System Downtime

Download to your calendar.
Date: 
Tuesday, July 12, 2016 -
7:00am to 9:00pm
Location: 

Ohio Supercomputer Center

7/12/16 7PM Update: Downtime is now estimated to complete around 9:00PM, not 5PM.

UPDATE: Due to a bug identified on some of the center's new hardware, our planned June 29th downtime to upgrade project and scratch file systems will be postponed until July 12th. This delay is not expected to alter the availability timeline for our new cluster, Owens.

 

Goddard to discuss theoretical chemistry at The Ohio State University

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Nov. 12, 2015) – William Andrew Goddard III, Ph.D., will deliver the 2015 Pitzer Lecture in Theoretical Chemistry at 4:10 p.m. Nov. 23 in Room 2015 of McPherson Laboratory, 140 W. 18th Ave., on the main campus of The Ohio State University. A post-lecture reception will follow in Room 100 of the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building, 151 Woodruff Ave.
