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.
Dublin, Ohio -- August 31, 2005 -- The City of Dublin has joined forces with Ohio's Third Frontier Network (TFN) in establishing the Central Ohio Research Network--or CORN--linking education and commerce for research and economic development.
Columbus, Ohio -- March 21, 2002 -- OSC supercomputing and memory systems are moving to a new home. The new systems will be consolidated in a secure environment at the State of Ohio Computing Center (SOCC) in Columbus, Ohio, providing OSC with a secure and reliable facility with custom-based infrastructure.
Cincinnati, OH — April 26, 2004 — The Third Frontier Network (TFN) will make Ohio a world leader in using technologically advanced networking to improve health care research and education, as demonstrated today at the University of Cincinnati (UC) Genome Research Institute (GRI). TFN will support medical research collaborators as they identify and treat diseases.
TFN-connected Ohio hospitals and medical research labs will be able to share medical images and collaborate on research, education, and service programs.
Columbus, Ohio -- May 29, 2001 -- The U.S. Department of Defense announced on Friday that a $108 million contract has been awarded to OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center), Mississippi State University (MSU) and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).
OSC competed nationally in conjunction with the other two centers for the contract. This award to support the High Performance Computing Modernization Program is one of the largest in Defense Department history to further academic research and training.
Congressman Regula Honored for His Part in Garnering $5.1 Million in Federal Funds for Network Research Applications
Canton, OH -- March 29, 2004 -- State officials converged at Stark State College of Technology today to focus on the Third Frontier Network's (TFN) capacities to support fuel cell research. The Third Frontier Network will make Ohio a world leader in using technologically advanced networking to improve education, research and medical care.

Columbus, Ohio -- May 20, 2002 -- This week, Progress Forge introduces its first training programs in support of Star Bridge Systems'® VIVA® 2.0 development environment.
Ohio Supercomputer Center provides UC scientist with computational power to make discovery
CINCINNATI, OH — August 13, 2007 — A soldier’s ability to survive a mine blast greatly improves if armored vehicles are equipped with energy-absorbing seats, according to recent studies by a University of Cincinnati scientist.
Working with the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, Professor Ala Tabiei developed and evaluated a new seat design for personnel carriers and other non-tank vehicles that mitigates an explosion’s force inside the vehicle.
Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Executive Director Stan Ahalt’s Blue Collar Computing speech on high performance computing (HPC) for industry and research applications received enthusiastic support at the SC2004 conference in Pittsburgh, Pa., last week.
As more than 1,000 international audience members listened, Ahalt explained that HPC has reached a critical juncture as economic forces continue to shape its market segment.
