Columbus, Ohio — June 27, 2007 —Empower. Partner. Lead. These are the philosophies and actions that define the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s two decades of innovation and service. 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.
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.
Algorithm searches for models that best explain experimental data
Columbus, Ohio (Aug. 2, 2011) – A Franklin University professor recently developed an evolutionary computation approach that offers researchers the flexibility to search for models that can best explain experimental data derived from many types of applications, including economics.
Columbus, Ohio (May 16, 2011) - Nimbis Services, Inc. announced the company has been awarded two-year DARPA Phase 2 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Application Domain Portal Hosting Service project.
The ADEC Bill Murphy Barrier Buster Award was presented to the National Science Foundation Technology and Application Team for its work associated with the implementation of multicast and the National Videoconference on April 2, 2003.

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.
Consortium garners $4.475 million in state funding, aims to put Ohio in Top 5
Columbus, Ohio – March 18, 2008 – A proposal led by Ohio University and powered by the resources of the Ohio Supercomputer Center and the Ralph Regula School of Computational Science is aimed at positioning the state as a national leader in the emerging field of bioinformatics.
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.
