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.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Hosts AliRoot Workshop

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is hosting a two-day workshop on "Using ROOT's Virtual Monte Carlo to Simulate the Response Of A Large Ion Collider Experiment Detector System" and "Using Grid Technology, AliEn, to Access and Analyze Large Data Sets." The workshops will be held on May 25 and 26, respectively, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in OSC’s BALE theater and broadcast over the VRVS/Access Grid.

Spring Break "fun in the sun" could put your fluctuating DNA at risk:

OSU researchers determine rare DNA shapes are susceptible to UV light damage

Columbus, Ohio – February 8, 2008 – Spring Break means warmer weather and the allure of sunny beaches. But while sun-loving students head out to beaches every spring to enjoy sand and surf, ultraviolet rays could be damaging their skin’s genetic code and causing skin cancer, the most widespread cancer in North America. 

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.

Director of Energy Research Keynotes October 6 Meeting

-Dr. Martha Krebs on the National Role of Energy Research

Columbus, Ohio -- September 28, 1994 -- Dr. Martha Krebs, the first woman ever appointed to lead the U.S. Office of Energy Research (OER), will give the keynote address at the conference: Combustion, Environment, and Heating Technology--The Role of High Performance Simulation. This conference, hosted by the Ohio Supercomputer Center, is on October 6-7, 1994, at the Fawcett Center For Tomorrow on the campus of The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio.

The Internet: A Guide For Chemists

Ohio Supercomputer Center Chemists Major Contributors to Internet How-to Guide

A new guide to the Internet especially geared toward chemists has just been released. The Internet: A Guide For Chemists, edited by Steven M. Bachrach, covers basic information such as the history of the Internet, electronic mail, electronic lists, gopher, world wide web, and electronic conferencing plus a comprehensive section especially for chemists.

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.
