Columbus, Ohio -- March 15, 1995 -- In mid-February, OSC Networking and MCI Telecommunications completed the installation and testing of OSC Networking's expanded gateway service to the Internet. The new service establishes connections between OSC Networking and internetMCI Direct Connect Access. As a result of this new service, OSC Networking, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, now maintains a total of 10.5Mbps total gateway throughput to the Internet through three different diverse paths.
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 -- April 11, 2002 -- Columbus is set to host a technology conference that for the first time will bring together five nationally recognized technology institutions that play a major role in the development and distribution of information technology to the education and research communities nationwide. The conference is a national event that draws participants from across the country in order to identify and discuss the challenges of and solutions to problems associated with networking technology and content delivery.
Event Set for December 1, 2005
The 7th annual Megaconference is set for Thursday December 1, 2005., from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. EST. This annual event is sponsored by the Internet2 Commons and supported by many national and international organizations, manufacturers and vendors. There is no cost for participation.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – January 27, 2004 -- The fiscal year 2004 Consolidated Appropriations Act, approved earlier by Congress and signed into law last week by President Bush, directs $5.1 million in federal funds to the Ohio Board of Regents to make Ohio the world’s leader in using state-of-the-art computer networking to improve education, research and medical care.
The federal funds support new initiatives that will take advantage of Ohio’s 1,600-mile Third Frontier Network, the most advanced state-wide computer network in the nation.

Columbus, Ohio (March 19, 2009) – The direct experience of art transcends its procedural techniques, whether the pieces are elegant temples built thousands of years ago or images created with computers, said Ch
Four Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) employees, as well as two Ohio State University (OSU) plant biology researchers, had a manuscript published in the online journal, Plant Physiology. The manuscript was entitled, “Genome-wide Identification of Arabidopsis Coiled-coil Proteins and Establishment of the ARABI-COIL Database.”
COLUMBUS, Ohio – August 6, 2004 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has awarded a supercomputer cluster to Case Western Reserve University as part of OSC’s “Cluster Ohio” program. Delivered on June 28 to Case’s physics department, the cluster was part of a larger system divided among several institutions statewide.

OSC in the News
Columbus, Ohio -- July 7, 1997 -- Students participating in a program starting July 14 at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) in Columbus will use computers similar to the one that Garry Kasparov lost a chess match to earlier this year.
The 16 students will use the Center's high end computing and networking resources to work on problems not unlike those that chemists, physicists, and engineers try to solve. They were selected out of 51 applicants to participate in the 1997 Summer Institute program sponsored by OSC and The Ohio State University.
