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.
Columbus, Ohio (July 5, 2012) - At this year's Young Women's Summer Intitute, 15 middle school girls from around Ohio will be exploring complex environmental watershed issues that impact the state.
Sixteen high school students from around Ohio will be attending the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s Summer Institute on June 17-29, 2012, at The Ohio State University. These students, selected from 69 applicants, will research and solve real-world challenges through exploring topics from investigating cyber-crime to designing autonomous robots.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – February 15, 2007 – Learn about Python, one of today’s most popular mid-level programming languages for scientists and engineers.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is hosting a workshop, Python Programming for High Performance Computing, on February 20 - 21 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in its BALE theater. The workshop is geared toward those wanting to learn about Python but have never used it before. Attendees should have some programming experience.
Columbus, Ohio -- April 17, 2003 -- OSC is excited to host the 45th Cray User Group Conference (CUG 2003) on May 12-16, at the Hyatt on Capital Square. CUG 2003 will allow Cray users from all over the world to exchange problem-solving information and enjoy professional interactions with fellow Cray users.
SIGGRAPH, San Antonio, CA - July 23, 2002 - NVIDIA® Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions announced that OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) has purchased and deployed more than 50 NVIDIA Quadro4 900 XGL workstation graphics boards to power a new cluster for volume rendering of graphics applications.
HPC availability continues to support Ohio’s economic development efforts
Columbus, Ohio (August 31, 2009) The Ohio Supercomputer Center today deploys a much anticipated $4 million expansion to its flagship system, providing further computational support to the state’s economic development aspirations in research and innovation.
