COLUMBUS, Ohio -- August 16, 2005 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will hold a Network Performance Workshop Sept 29 and 30 at its headquarters on the Ohio State University West Campus. The workshop is sponsored by OARnet, OSC's networking division, and Internet2, the national high-performance network for higher education.
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.
Columbus, Ohio -- May 28, 2002 -- OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) has announced that 16 high school finalists will embark on its Summer Institute (SI) 2002: Experience the Future of Computing.
The OSC SI Program has been offered to Ohio's brightest high school freshmen and sophomores for 14 years. SI gives students the opportunity to work with OSC's most advanced supercomputers.
Combined Software and Hardware Solution Features SAN File System, Increases Client’s Storage Capacity Five-Fold
Columbus, OH and Armonk, NY -- January 16, 2004 – Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announced today that it has selected IBM storage hardware and software to manage an immense repository of research data. Crucial data such as bioinformatics, which is generated through shared research applications provided by OSC, will reach thousands of researchers across the state of Ohio as a result of the agreement.
Platform Lab will be hosting a grand opening event on January 31, 2002, 4-6:30 p.m. at its facility at the Business Technology Center, 1275 Kinnear Road, Columbus. The Lab is now open for business and the first customers already are testing software applications.
