Ohio Supercomputer Center celebrates 35 years at the forefront of technology

Since its founding in 1987, OSC has remained on the forefront of technology by continually upgrading and launching new high performance computing resources while expanding its services to an array of academic disciplines and industries. As Ohio focuses on heightening its scientific capabilities and workforce development strategies to ensure its economic success, OSC is becoming an even more critical state resource.

Fall SUG conference gathers researchers to the Ohio Supercomputer Center

Academic research provides students and staff alike the ability to pursue ground-breaking discoveries in numerous fields of study. These findings are propelled by Ohio universities’ access to high performance computing (HPC) through the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). Many of the state’s researchers gathered at OSC for the biannual Statewide Users Group (SUG) conference on Thursday to share their current research and innovations that have used HPC.

Ohio Supercomputer Center names new system after Russell Pitzer

The Ohio Supercomputer Center is in the process of procuring a new high performance computing system this summer, and in line with its tradition of naming its systems after pioneers with an Ohio connection, the center looked to its earliest days.

Russell M. Pitzer, the honoree and now emeritus professor of chemistry at The Ohio State University, was among a few individuals who began discussing the possibility of bringing high performance computing to Ohio higher education, even before the center was established in 1987.

OSC helps researchers unveil most accurate map of the invisible universe

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio Supercomputer Center played a critical role in helping researchers reach a milestone mapping the growth of the universe from its infancy to present day.

The new results released Aug. 3 confirm the surprisingly simple but puzzling theory that the present universe is composed of only 4 percent ordinary matter, 26 percent mysterious dark matter, and the remaining 70 percent in the form of mysterious dark energy, which causes the accelerating expansion of the universe.
