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 partners with P&G on modeling and simulation projects

Collaboration is first to be inked at OSU under multi-university agreement

Columbus, Ohio (February 28, 2011) - The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has signed a collaboration agreement with the Procter & Gamble Company, enabling the two to work together on modeling and simulation projects aimed at accelerating innovation collaboration between industry and academia. The collaboration is the first at the Ohio State University enacted under P&G’s master alliance agreement with Ohio colleges and universities.

Ohio High School Students to Embark on Two-Week Expedition Into the World of High Performance Computing and Networking at OSC

Columbus, Ohio -- July 9, 1998 -- The few have been chosen.

Sixteen students from across Ohio will soon take a two-week journey called "Adventures in Virtual Worlds" during the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Summer Institute, July 13-24 at the supercomputer center.

The program, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, gives academically-outstanding high school freshman and sophomores a rare opportunity to step into the world of high performance computing and networking.

National Science Foundation Strengthens Commitment to Education, Outreach, and Diversity through EPIC Collaboration

Columbus, OH - April 28, 2005 - The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the formation of a new collaboration, supported through the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate, to construct a human capacity building infrastructure that extends the cyberinfrastructure community to include a much larger number of talented and diverse people.

New Blue Collar Bill Seeks Federal Funds So Small Businesses Can Compute

Columbus, OH -- August 12, 2006 -- Now even the most down home mom and pop businesses may have access to supercomputers without worrying about the cost.

A bill proposed by Senators Mike DeWine, R-Ohio, and Herb Kohl, D-Wis., seeks legislation to spend $25 million a year for five years to fund up to five supercomputer centers across the country. The idea is modeled after the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) Blue Collar Computing initiative that extends cutting-edge technology use to smaller businesses and manufacturers at a no- or low-cost rate.
