Cray Inc. customers can now pick the brains of OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) high performance computing experts and make use of their vast experience. As part of an ongoing contract, OSC is offering training facilities to Cray's customer base, further strengthening its extremely successful relationship with the supercomputer leader.
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, OH -- June 16, 2006 – Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH) and Senator Herb Kohl (D-WI) have introduced the “Blue Collar Computing and Business Assistance Act of 2006,” an initiative championed by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) to make high performance computing (HPC) resources available to small businesses and manufacturers.
The bill creates the Advanced Multidisciplinary Computing Software Institute (AMCSI) with a threefold purpose to:
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.

Wendover, Utah – August 18, 2008 – Throughout Speed Week 2008, the Ohio State University Buckeye Bullet 2 team will be turning the pit area on the Bonneville Speedway into a temporary WiFi hot spot as they pursue the speed record for electric vehicles.
Springfield, Ohio—December 3, 2003—The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has received $6 million from the United States Department of Energy (DOE) to establish a supercomputing center in Springfield, Ohio. OSC will work closely with the DOE, the Department of Defense (DoD) center at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, and other local agencies to provide a high performance computing presence in southwestern Ohio.
Leveraging group purchasing power to lower technology costs can save $130 million, minimize energy consumption
COLUMBUS – January 9, 2009 – Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor Eric D. Fingerhut today announced the University System of Ohio has entered into an agreement with VMware, Inc.
Wireless 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.
Youngstown, Ohio – February 20, 2009 – U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan announced today a $1.6 million federal direct appropriation to establish a National Defense Center of Excellence in Industrial Metrology and 3D Imaging headquartered at Youngstown State University.
The center, funded by the U.S. Department of Defense Army Research Lab, will focus on developing and improving advanced manufacturing technologies for military and commercial uses that could have widespread economic impact across the Northeast Ohio region and throughout the United States.
