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.

OSCnet Project in Cleveland Provides Ohio Connection to Advanced National Research and Education Network

COLUMBUS, Ohio — April 24, 2007 — Ohio students, faculty, and researchers will no longer have to look out-of-state for access to the most advanced nationwide network in the United States, thanks to a project in Cleveland that connects Ohio’s research and education network – OSCnet – to the new Internet2 Network.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Upgrades BALE Cluster

COLUMBUS, Ohio – January 29, 2007 – Students and researchers using the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) BALE Cluster can now enjoy faster rendering for visualizations and improved system stability. OSC's Ralph Regula School of Computational Science (RRSCS) will also be able to use the updated BALE training environment for a variety of computational science education activities. RRSCS is a statewide, virtual school focused on computational science.

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 Supercomputer Center Training Courses Contribute to Efforts to Strengthen National Security

Columbus, OH – July 12, 2006 – The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) internationally-recognized training expertise will now be used to help reduce vulnerability in our nation’s information system.

Recently, The Ohio State University (OSU) was designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAEIAE) by the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). As part of OSU’s designation, OSC will provide NSA-certified training and participate as a member of OSU’s Consortium for IAE.

Ohio Supercomputer Center, Genome Research Institute Recruit Biologists for New Platform Tool, GRIDP

New Web Service Will Speed Up Bioinformatics Research

COLUMBUS, Ohio – June 28, 2006 – The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and University of Cincinnati’s Genome Research Institute (GRI) are recruiting research biologists at the Ohio Collaborative Conference on Bioinformatics (OCCBIO) this week and at other venues to help test its new computational biology tool as an initial project of the Ralph Regula School of Computational Science.

Secure videoconferencing provides key to enhancing education, research collaboration, savings

OARnet study seeks balance of security, quality in videoconferencing

Columbus, Ohio — February 5, 2009 Some technologists see a day in the not-so-distant future when advances in videoconferencing will allow the quickly maturing technology to greatly enhance distance education, boost research collaboration and reduce travel and meeting costs.
