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.

Local InfraGard Meeting Examines Network Security

The Information Age has made a permanent mark on our lives. Even if you don't own a computer, you are still affected by them every time you shop, drive your car or even visit the doctor's office. But, did you know that this world of technology also affects your security?

Columbus, Ohio -- November 23, 1999 -- Employers, businesses, hospitals and the government are moving toward computerized systems.

OSC Technology Policy Group Named Think Tank

ECLIPSColumbus, Ohio -- November 19, 1998 -- World history books are filled with the names and ideas of great thinkers -- Aristotle, Benjamin Franklin, Sigmund Freud, Peter Drucker, and now...ECLIPS?! According to Policy.com, an online resource, the Ohio Supercomputer Center's (OSC) Technology Policy Group is officially a national think tank where issues like electronic commerce, policy, and law are concerned.

OSC Completes Successful Summer Education Programs

OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) concluded its 2003 summer education programs with successful results. This season’s programs offered unique learning opportunities for many groups, from college professors and high school teachers to graduate, high school, and even middle-school students. This year was particularly successful in helping OSC fulfill its mission to help others learn high performance computing.

Future surgeons practice delicate techniques with new computer simulation teaching tool

Surgeon using vtbone simulatorNational award for special contributions to medical education recognizes Ohio Supercomputer Center, Nationwide Children’s, Ohio State innovation

Columbus, Ohio - July 28, 2008 - The next generation of surgeons – many who grew up playing video games – are using real-time, interactive computer simulations to learn the difficult and delicate surgical techniques associated with the temporal bone in the human skull.
