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.

OSC Announces First Ever Ohio Business Privacy Forum

Columbus, Ohio -- June 10, 1999 -- The explosion of the Internet changed the way the world does business. It has affected the way we hire employees, transfer medical records and make sales transactions.

In addition, advances in technology outpace current practice, law and regulation. For firms, this endangers valuable proprietary data. Meanwhile, consumers may have private information exposed without their knowledge.

Ohio Supercomputer Center Orders Cray T3D Massively Parallel Processing System

Columbus, Ohio -- December 20, 1993 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and Cray Research, Inc. (NYSE: CYR) today announced an agreement under which OSC will acquire a 32-processor, "entry-level" version of the CRAY T3D massively parallel processing (MPP) system. The new CRAY system will fit well into OSC's existing Y-MP8/864 and Y-MP-EL/332 computing environment. The agreement calls for OSC and Cray Research to use the new systems to collaborate on advanced research projects including medical imaging. Financial terms were not disclosed.

State Legislators Get "Wired" at Ohio's E-Commerce Day

Columbus, Ohio (March 22, 2001) - As part of "E-Commerce Day in Ohio," more than 100 state legislators were presented with "Wired" awards in honor of their adoption of technology. The event was held on March 6 at the Riffe Center in celebration of a joint resolution honoring the efforts of ECom-Ohio by Senator Ron Amstutz (R- Wooster) and Representative Kevin DeWine (R-Fairborn).

New Blue Collar Bill Seeks Federal Funds So Small Businesses Can Compute

Columbus, OH -- August 12, 2006 -- Now even the most down home mom and pop businesses may have access to supercomputers without worrying about the cost.

A bill proposed by Senators Mike DeWine, R-Ohio, and Herb Kohl, D-Wis., seeks legislation to spend $25 million a year for five years to fund up to five supercomputer centers across the country. The idea is modeled after the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) Blue Collar Computing initiative that extends cutting-edge technology use to smaller businesses and manufacturers at a no- or low-cost rate.
