Ohio Supercomputer Center launches OnDemand 3.0

Columbus, Ohio – The Ohio Supercomputer Center has launched OnDemand 3.0, a vastly upgraded version of its “one-stop shop” for access to its High Performance Computing services.

This latest version of OSC’s custom-built OnDemand web portal is the first to be based on Open OnDemand, an NSF-funded OSC project to develop an open-source web portal providing advanced web and graphical interfaces for HPC centers.

Bharat Bhushan, Ph.D., and Samuel Martin, a Ph.D. candidate and co-author on Bhushan’s recent study, have used OSC resources to research black skimmer birds and shark skin to understand drag reduction.

Bharat Bhushan, Ph.D., was on sabbatical at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2005 when a transformation began.

Disease forecasting: New methodology will allow proactive approach to epidemic containment

When life-threatening weather events loom, forecasters warn citizens days, even weeks, beforehand so they can take action. It seems to work: We clear supermarket shelves, board up windows and even evacuate to higher ground ahead of the impending tempest to avoid danger.

Galaxy formation simulations benefit NASA’s future space telescope

WFIRST

In February, NASA announced it would move forward with its Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) mission, which will study a broad set of scientific investigations. For the past five years, researchers from Ohio State, whose own research has been buoyed by the Ohio Supercomputer Center, have been on NASA’s Science Definition Team for the preliminary study of WFIRST, set to launch in the mid-2020s. Find out how OSC is supporting this historic research and what it could mean for the future of space exploration. 

Supercomputer services give honey bee researchers critical insight

In a very significant way, Rodney Richardson has found a key that is unlocking some powerful insight into how we can help sustain the lives of our planet’s pollinators.

In 2014, the Ohio State University graduate student adapted his previous experience using Ohio Supercomputer Center resources for bioinformatics studies to his current research on honey bee foraging and the result could throw open the doors for this particular area of study.
