Tues, Sept 15th 5PM: We are experiencing issues with the downtime. Systems will not be up at 5PM. We plan to be operational by later today.
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.
XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center are pleased to announce a one day Big Data workshop, to be held August 4, 2015.
This workshop will focus on topics such as Hadoop and Spark. As is the case with all of the XSEDE HPC Workshop series, this event will feature a large portion of hands-on exercises.
Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites.
This workshop is NOT available via a webcast.
You may attend at any of the following sites.
* Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center

OSC requires every HPC account password to be changed every 90 days. If the account password is not changed within the timeframe, the account will be locked and our staff will need to assist; please contact email@example.com. This policy affects all clients using OSC HPC production services.
Please note that the password guidelines have been strengthened. As of June 16, 2015, the password guidelines are as follows:
Research projects featuring a wide range of scientific interests, such as electron microscopy, pesticides and polymers, were featured at the first-ever poster session and flash talk competition at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) June 4.
Is there a better way to design production systems that will adapt to the aerodynamics of a peanut during roasting? Or to the size of a baby during diaper design? Or to the likelihood of a detergent bottle being dropped? For the person given these challenges, the answer for each is “yes,” and the means is “powerful computers.”
Phonons—the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound—have magnetic properties, according to a landmark study supported by Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) services and recently published by a researcher group from The Ohio State University.
Researchers who normally use high-resolution satellite imagery to study glaciers are using their technology this week to help with disaster relief and longer-term stabilization planning efforts related to the recent earthquake in Nepal.
