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.

Dinosaur Takes Center Stage at Ohio Supercomputer Center

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Dec. 1, 2005 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will take a journey 66 million years back in time today, to showcase Jane, a Tyrannosaurus Rex exhibit at the Burpee Museum of Natural History in Rockford, IL. D ozens of presenters, hundreds of participants, and thousands of viewers in 40 countries on six continents around the world will be along for the ride.

Celebrating 20 Years of Supercomputing, Networking Excellence

And, as 2007 marks the Center’s 20th anniversary, the mission to empower, partner and lead state and national partners will guide the Center as it forges ahead as a center of excellence.

Demand for TFN Service Forces Early Ring-0 Upgrade

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- August 4, 2005 -- Engineers from the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) completed an early upgrade to the primary core ring on the Third Frontier Network (TFN) last week in order to handle increasing demand for networking services. Known as Ring-0, it is the most important ring on the nation's most advanced statewide fiber optic network for education and research.
