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 - May 16, 2002 - With extensive planning and assistance from a network of associates, OSC finished moving all supercomputing and memory systems to a new home this month. The new systems will be consolidated in a secure environment at the State of Ohio Computing Center (SOCC) in Columbus, Ohio, providing OSC with a secure and reliable facility with custom-based infrastructure.
McLEAN, VA, and Columbus, Ohio – May 3, 2001 - LabBook, Inc., and OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) announced today that they have entered into an agreement that will provide LabBook’s XML-Life Sciences Solution to Ohio’s academic community. Terms and financing of the agreement were not disclosed.
OSU researchers utilize TimeLogic DeCypher® at OSC to speed horse gene identification
Carlsbad, CA and Columbus, OH - Using the DeCypher biocomputing solution from TimeLogic deployed at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), Dr. Alicia Bertone of The Ohio State University (OSU) School of Veterinary Medicine and Dr. Weisong Gu, OSU postdoctoral researcher, have developed the first equine microarray featuring 3,800 genes.
Perrysburg, OH - June 7, 2004 – Ohio’s Third Frontier Network (TFN), the nation’s most advanced research network, will assist the Great Lakes Educational Consortium for Homeland Security Training in regional first-response and anti-terrorism efforts. TFN initiatives that strengthen northwest Ohio’s defense efforts were highlighted today at Owens Community College.
Columbus, Ohio -- June 19, 2002 -- OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) announces a new statewide software licensing partnership with Altair Engineering, a leading developer of engineering software.
Youngstown, Ohio – February 20, 2009 – U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan announced today a $1.6 million federal direct appropriation to establish a National Defense Center of Excellence in Industrial Metrology and 3D Imaging headquartered at Youngstown State University.
The center, funded by the U.S. Department of Defense Army Research Lab, will focus on developing and improving advanced manufacturing technologies for military and commercial uses that could have widespread economic impact across the Northeast Ohio region and throughout the United States.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- May 19, 2004 -- The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced that the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) would receive $650,000 to provide technical leadership and program management to Mississippi State University (MSU) as it develops and improves high performance computing systems for the military. OSC will also receive $1.35 million to provide technical support in Signal Image Processing and Integrated Modeling and Test Environments.
Columbus, Ohio -- March 14, 1997 -- Researchers from across the country will come to Ohio on April 2-3 to learn how to enhance their use of parallel processing, one of the latest forms of computing.
Columbus, Ohio -- September 25, 2002 -- Just in time for the new academic year at The Ohio State University (OSU), Community Connection is now available.
