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.

OSC to Host CUG 2003 in May

Columbus, Ohio -- April 17, 2003 -- OSC is excited to host the 45th Cray User Group Conference (CUG 2003) on May 12-16, at the Hyatt on Capital Square. CUG 2003 will allow Cray users from all over the world to exchange problem-solving information and enjoy professional interactions with fellow Cray users.

Scholarships available for Ohio bioinformatics students Program aims to position Ohio as a national leader in emerging field

Columbus, Ohio (September 4, 2009) – As college students return to classes for the fall term, many are looking for any financial assistance that might be available. For those studying a combination of biology, computer science and information technology – a field known as bioinformatics – there are significant scholarships still available.

OSC remembers Dr. Clyde B. "Bud" Bratton

Clyde B. Bratton, a retired Cleveland State University physics professor whose doctoral research contributed to the development of MRI equipment, died of a heart attack Tuesday at his son's home in Willoughby.

The 77-year-old Euclid resident taught at CSU from 1967 until retiring in 2002.

As a doctoral student at Western Reserve University in 1964, Bratton did nuclear magnetic resonance studies on living muscle.

Pankaj Shah Selected to Lead OARnet, OSC's Networking Division

Columbus, OH - February 14, 2005 - The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC)announced today that Pankaj Shah has been chosen as its new OARnet Director. Shah will officially assume the directorship on March 7, 2005.

"We are very excited that we will have a person of Pankaj Shah's stature and talent on our team," said Stan Ahalt, OSC Executive Director. "Pankaj has the skills, background, and organizational capabilities that are exactly what we need for OARnet's future."

Ohio researcher tracks movement of H1N1 influenza virus with the aid of supercomputer, mapping software

OSU project adapts Supramap program from earlier study of avian influenza 

Columbus, Ohio – May 7, 2009 - An Ohio State University Medical Center biomedical informatics researcher is tapping the power of the Ohio Supercomputer Center to monitor the spread of the H1N1 influenza virus.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Calls for Proposals for Statewide Computational Science Courses

Columbus, Ohio -- August 3, 1999 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is looking for Ohio faculty interested in using distance learning technologies to bring computational science courses to campuses across the state.

OSC, a statewide resource for high performance technology, recently received funding from the Ohio Board of Regents to assist the state in developing computational science expertise at its public universities. OSC will fund computational science courses from various institutions that can be taught on multiple campuses.
