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.

Cleveland, Ohio -- Dec. 16, 2005 -- A school without bricks and mortar promises to transform Ohio's education and workforce.

OSC Announces Winter Workshops for Novice, Advanced Researchers

Columbus, Ohio -- January 10, 2003 -- OSC's (Ohio Supercomputer Center) nationally recognized workshops return this winter, offering several new courses for both beginner and advanced computer users.

OSC regularly provides workshops about new computing techniques and hardware and software resources at no cost to users. Remote workshops are also held through OSC's Access Grid node, an advanced audio-visual communications tool that transmits over Internet2.

New Hires Added to OSC-Springfield Workforce

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio

"These new hires will provide systems and user support for the equipment located in Springfield," said Kevin Wohlever, OSC-S Director. "We are excited to bring these quality people on board and look forward to the contributions that they will make to our operations."

As systems developer/engineer, David Bertram leads support of the Apple Cluster that will serve a large number of OSC users and provide a testing environment on this unique architecture. His future goals at OSC are to make project users' lives easier and to maintain staff machines.

National Technology Agencies Host Joint Conference in Columbus

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.

High School Students Invited to Take an Odyssey in Supercomputing

Columbus, Ohio -- January 10, 2001 -- OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) and The Ohio State University (OSU) will host their 13th annual Summer Institute, SI 2001: An Odyssey in Supercomputing, July 16-27, 2001.

Computing is not limited to academia and business anymore. It has quickly become a normal part of our daily lives. Rapid development in computing has impacted our work, play, education and commerce. Those who stay on the pulse of technological change today will be the information leaders of tomorrow.
