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, Ohio -- May 19, 2004 -- The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced that the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) would receive $650,000 to provide technical leadership and program management to Mississippi State University (MSU) as it develops and improves high performance computing systems for the military. OSC will also receive $1.35 million to provide technical support in Signal Image Processing and Integrated Modeling and Test Environments.
Collaboration is first to be inked at OSU under multi-university agreement
Columbus, Ohio (February 28, 2011) - The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has signed a collaboration agreement with the Procter & Gamble Company, enabling the two to work together on modeling and simulation projects aimed at accelerating innovation collaboration between industry and academia. The collaboration is the first at the Ohio State University enacted under P&G’s master alliance agreement with Ohio colleges and universities.
The National Computational Science Institute (NCSI) will offer an introductory workshop entitled, "Introduction to Computational Science Modeling and Simulation in the Undergraduate Environment." The workshop will be held on June 16-22 at OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center), located on The Ohio State University campus.
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.
Columbus, Ohio (Nov. 8, 2011) – William H. Miller, Ph.D., professor of chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, will deliver the 2011 Pitzer Lecture in Theoretical Chemistry at 4 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 9 in Room 2015 of McPherson Laboratory, 140 W. 18th Ave., on the main campus of The Ohio State University.
At an annual awards banquet on May 20, 2003, Al Stutz was presented the Chairs Award for his service and effort in assisting the Computer and Information Science (CIS) Department at The Ohio State University (OSU). In addition to serving as a Senior CIS Lecturer, Stutz is the Ohio Supercomputer Center Chief Operating Officer and Interim OSC Networking Director.
Columbus, OH -- September 4, 2008 -- You asked for a better way to manage your OSC accounts, and we listened. We're pleased to announce the launch of OSC's PI Portal, a user-friendly, web-based service that enables you to conveniently manage information regarding user accounts, funding and publications information.
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.
