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.

Local InfraGard Meeting Examines Network Security

The Information Age has made a permanent mark on our lives. Even if you don't own a computer, you are still affected by them every time you shop, drive your car or even visit the doctor's office. But, did you know that this world of technology also affects your security?

Columbus, Ohio -- November 23, 1999 -- Employers, businesses, hospitals and the government are moving toward computerized systems.

OSC Technology Policy Group Named Think Tank

ECLIPSColumbus, Ohio -- November 19, 1998 -- World history books are filled with the names and ideas of great thinkers -- Aristotle, Benjamin Franklin, Sigmund Freud, Peter Drucker, and now...ECLIPS?! According to Policy.com, an online resource, the Ohio Supercomputer Center's (OSC) Technology Policy Group is officially a national think tank where issues like electronic commerce, policy, and law are concerned.

Deadline to Join OSC at SC07 Fast Approaching

OSC Clients invited to participate in “Showcase of Ohio Research;” Deadline July 2

Columbus, Ohio – June 27, 2007 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center invites faculty, researchers, graduate students and undergraduates to be a part of its "Showcase of Ohio Research" exhibit at this year's SC07, the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking and storage. SC07 is held November 1016, 2007, in Reno, Nevada.

Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Receives National Science Foundation Award for Storage System Development

COLUMBUS, Ohio, August 22, 2006 — The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) was awarded $520,000 last week from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to help develop faster and smarter storage systems to improve and increase the processing power of high performance computing (HPC).

The three-year grant is part of the High-End Computing University Research Activity (HECURA) program, a national effort that promotes and funds research and education projects involving storage and retrieval of data in large-scale computing systems.
