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.

Scholarships available for Ohio bioinformatics students Program aims to position Ohio as a national leader in emerging field

Columbus, Ohio (September 4, 2009) – As college students return to classes for the fall term, many are looking for any financial assistance that might be available. For those studying a combination of biology, computer science and information technology – a field known as bioinformatics – there are significant scholarships still available.

Ohio Supercomputer Center collaborates with YSU, Fireline TCON in new Center for Excellence in Advanced Materials Analyses

Ohio Third Frontier Commission recommends $2.1 million to establish center

Youngstown, Ohio – July 8, 2008 – The Ohio Third Frontier Commission has awarded Youngstown State University with a $2.1 million grant to establish a Center for Excellence in Advanced Materials Analyses in collaboration with Fireline TCON Inc. and the Ohio Supercomputer Center. The project will focus on research, analyses, modeling and commercialization of products with increased resistance to thermal shock and lower thermal conductivity.

Ohio Supercomputer Center parallel programming workshops to give researchers edge with new multi-core processors

COLUMBUS, Ohio — April 9, 2007 — In preparation for the arrival of a new high performance computing system, the Ohio Supercomputer Center is providing three parallel computing workshops this spring.
The incoming computational system is projected to have 10 times the performance of the largest existing Ohio Supercomputer Center cluster. The IBM e1350 Compute Cluster will have 963 nodes and over 4,000 processor cores, allowing scientists to run their parallelized code on hundreds or thousands of processors.
