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 Ralph Regula School modeling initiative to transform policymakers' understanding of education's economic impact

OSC's Steve Gordon to Serve as Acting Director of School

“There is little wonder that independent studies into the future of the nation’s technology are unanimous in their conclusion that computer modeling and simulation are the key elements for achieving progress in engineering and science.”

OSC remembers Dr. Clyde B. "Bud" Bratton

Clyde B. Bratton, a retired Cleveland State University physics professor whose doctoral research contributed to the development of MRI equipment, died of a heart attack Tuesday at his son's home in Willoughby.

The 77-year-old Euclid resident taught at CSU from 1967 until retiring in 2002.

As a doctoral student at Western Reserve University in 1964, Bratton did nuclear magnetic resonance studies on living muscle.

XSEDE project brings advanced cyberinfrastructure, digital services, and expertise to nation's scientists and engineers

XSEDE Logo

Columbus, Ohio (July 25, 2011) - A partnership of 17 institutions today announced the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). XSEDE will be the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services in the world.

Distributed Memory MIMD Programming and Operating Environment for Heterogeneous UNIX Computers on a Network

Columbus, Ohio -- January 14, 1994 -- Software development specialists at the Ohio Supercomputer Center have released Local Area Multiprocessor (LAM) to the parallel processing and cluster computing community. LAM has been ported to several leading UNIX machines such as Sun, SGI, RS/6000, DEC APX and to Cray running UNICOS. LAM is freely available under a GNU license via anonymous ftp from tbag.osc.edu or from gopher at gopher.osc.edu. URL is gopher: //gopher.osc.edu:70/Software/Trollius.

OSC Announces YWSI 2001 Middle School Participants

Columbus, Ohio -- May 25, 2001 -- OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) has announced that 15 middle school girls have been selected to participate in its Young Women's Summer Institute (YWSI).

This is OSC's second year offering the YWSI Program. YWSI is specially designed for Ohio's middle school girls as a response to the low participation of women in the fields of science and technology. YWSI gives the girls an opportunity to work with OSC's most advanced supercomputers with the aid and instruction of top professionals.

New Ecom-Ohio Broadband Availability Map from TPG

COLUMBUS, Ohio

"Access to the fast lanes of the networked world is an important asset for the state's technology base," said Frank Samuel, Science and Technology Advisor to Ohio Governor Taft. Under funding from the Ohio Department of Development Technology Innovation Division, Ohio's Broadband Map will be accessible on-line in various formats, including overlays of key population and industry data. The web-enabled version of the map is expected to be available in July 2001, through the www.ecom-ohio.org site.
