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 Present Overview Workshop at Wittenberg University

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- January 16, 2004 -- On January 27, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will present a workshop at Wittenberg University entitled, “High Performance Computing at OSC: An Overview.”

The lecture will be held in the BDK Science Center’s Bailey Auditorium from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. There is no charge to attend, and members from the community, area businesses, and higher education institutions are invited to participate.

Sun Solaris Training Class Proves Successful

A Sun Solaris training class, held at OSC on December 11, was a great opportunity for users to learn how to use the system environments more effectively for their research. Participants included Wilberforce University, OSU Medical Center, NCR, Lucent Technologies, Nationwide, Huntington Bank, and Chemical Abstracts.

"This was a great way to experiment with some new operating system features,” said Kevin Wohlever, OSC Senior High Performance Computing Systems Specialist. “It will definitely help as we prepare for supporting some storage and disaster recovery projects here at OSC."

ONU Faculty Member Named to Supercomputer Center Advisory Group

Columbus, Ohio -- March 26, 1998 -- David Hudak, professor of computer science at Ohio Northern University, recently was named a member of the Ohio Supercomputer Center's (OSC) Statewide Users Group.

The OSC Statewide Users Group, or SUG, connects OSC to the academic institutions in the state and provides a faculty and student viewpoint on OSC's operations.

Ohio Cyberinfrastructure Projects Recognized for Achievements; Showcased at 2007 Advanced Technology Summit

COLUMBUS, Ohio — May 1, 2007 — Firefighters near Toledo brace for the heat of a flashover in a simulator while firefighting students at a university campus many miles distant study the live-action video over a fiber-optic network.

Middle school students in Appalachian Ohio immerse themselves into a society on a virtual island they visit over the state-of-the-art network, moving about, walking, running and even flying through highly developed landscapes, park-like settings and buildings.

Crown City residents now receive high-speed Internet connectivity through innovative Connecting Rural Ohio partnership

Crown City imageWireless broadband helps to overcome digital divide

May 3, 2008 – Throughout much of its nearly 200-year history, Crown City, Ohio, has been known as a way station for travelers on the Ohio River. The shipping artery brought boats, people, supplies and, on occasion, devastating floods to this small southeastern Ohio community.
