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.

OSC, Nationwide Children's use supercomputers to speed diagnoses

Partnership also offers visualization to provide personalized medical solutions

Columbus, Ohio (January 19, 2011) - Worried about her high fever and severe abdominal pain, a young couple rushed their baby daughter to the emergency department of Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Physicians there found a lump in her belly, and, after examining X-rays and blood work, confirmed the parents’ worst fear: their 18-month-old little girl had neuroblastoma, a rare pediatric cancer that involves the adrenal glands.



Herbert Wins Presidential Award

Mix of science and computing reveals what happens when molecules absorb light

Written by Pam Frost Gorder, (614) 292-9475; Gorder.1@osu.edu

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- July 30, 2009 -- John M. Herbert has received the highest award that a beginning researcher can receive in the United States.

The Ohio State University chemist is among 100 scientists and engineers honored with the 2009 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). He will receive his award in a White House ceremony later this fall.

Dinosaur Takes Center Stage at Ohio Supercomputer Center

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Dec. 1, 2005 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will take a journey 66 million years back in time today, to showcase Jane, a Tyrannosaurus Rex exhibit at the Burpee Museum of Natural History in Rockford, IL. D ozens of presenters, hundreds of participants, and thousands of viewers in 40 countries on six continents around the world will be along for the ride.

Third Frontier Network Propels Genome Research Through Virtual Medical Collaborations

Cincinnati, OH — April 26, 2004 — The Third Frontier Network (TFN) will make Ohio a world leader in using technologically advanced networking to improve health care research and education, as demonstrated today at the University of Cincinnati (UC) Genome Research Institute (GRI). TFN will support medical research collaborators as they identify and treat diseases.

TFN-connected Ohio hospitals and medical research labs will be able to share medical images and collaborate on research, education, and service programs.

OSC Leads OpenFPGA Consortium

Columbus, OH -- May 4, 2005 -- The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is leading an international effort to promote the use of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) in high-level and enterprise applications. The OpenFPGA consortium will develop and share critical information, technologies and best practices for using its applications.

Ohio researcher garners $287k DOE grant to devise better techniques for measuring, managing network traffic Research seeks to improve service for users of next-generation networks

Columbus, Ohio (October 6, 2009) – The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded $287,000 to the Ohio Supercomputer Center and the Ohio Academic Resources Network to devise new, more effective techniques that will improve the performance of the next generation of computer networks.
