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.

New Bioinformatics Conference Showcases Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Services for Researchers

Athens, Ohio – June 26, 2006 – OSC announces its active role in planning and participating in the Inaugural Ohio Collaborative Conference on Bioinformatics (OCCBIO) set for June 28-30, at Ohio University.  The conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for discussing research findings and experiences in computational approaches to biology-related problems.

Science, engineering students developing HPC programming skills through Great Lakes Consortium Virtual School summer course

Ohio Supercomputer Center hosts 40+ researchers from Ohio, nearby states

Columbus, Ohio - August 11, 2009 - Graduate students – from various disciplines and institutions across the country – are improving their multi-core programming skills this week during a summer school course offered by the Great Lakes Consortium’s Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering.

OSC's K-12 Summer Programs Now Accepting Applications

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- January 25, 2006 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center's (OSC) summer education programs -- the Young Women's Summer Institute (YWSI) and Summer Institute (SI) -- are now accepting applications for summer 2006.

YWSI is a weeklong program for Ohio's middle-school girls. It is designed to promote computer, math, and science skills as well as provide hands-on learning.

OSC Networking to Host Worldwide Testing of New Video Conferencing Technology Today

Columbus, Ohio -- October 11, 1999 -- More than 80 national and international research institutions and networking organizations are participating in Megaconference, the world's largest H.323 Internet video conference, being held today in Seattle. Megaconference runs in conjunction with the Fall Internet2 Meeting, taking place today through Wednesday. The Megaconference is a permanent, continuous multipoint H.323 Internet video conference organized and supported by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) located in Columbus.

What's New at the Platform Lab!

Platform Lab received and installed an important contribution from Sun Microsystems, Inc. as the lab opened its doors for operation. The contribution includes four enterprise-level Sun 220R dual processor systems, each with two gigabytes of memory, a pair of Sun Netra web application servers, and significant disk storage capacity.

These systems provide mid-range enterprise-level computing capacity and are available to users of the new facility. The estimated value of the contribution is in excess of $100,000.
