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.
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.
Columbus, Ohio -- December 8, 1994 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) announces that five science video animations produced at the center were among the 34 selected for the International Supercomputing '94 Conference showcase video, SuperViz '94, as excellent examples of scientific research.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will participate in the first-ever National Internet2 Day on Thursday, March 18. This nationwide virtual event will consist of nearly 40 leading research universities from across the country, including four major Ohio institutions: The Ohio State University, University of Toledo, Case Western Reserve University, and University of Cincinnati. Events will run from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and the proceedings will be netcast to accommodate different bandwidth capabilities.
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.
