(June 24, 2012) –Widely recognized Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) programs to support the development and expansion of advanced manufacturing align closely with a new national initiative to help U.S. manufacturers improve cost, quality and speed of production in order to remain globally competitive. Announced today by the White House, the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP) will bring together industry, universities and the federal government to identify and invest in key emerging technologies – information technology, biotechnology and nanotechnology.
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 – Dec. 13, 2006 – His third time playing was a charm. Dr. Alan Chalker, senior systems developer/engineer at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), recently won the 14th semi-annual MATLAB Online Program Contest on Dec. 6, 2006.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – November 30, 2006 – Now Ohio’s research scientists and faculty members alike can use the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) high performance computing resources (HPC). Graduate and postdoctoral students enjoy the same access through their professors.
Unlike many computing facilities, OSC’s liberal user policy puts some of the world’s most powerful supercomputing resources at the fingertips of academic researchers and computational scientists – resources that were once exclusively reserved for tenure-track faculty members.
