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, Platform Lab Nominated for 2003 Top CAT Awards

Both OSC and Platform Lab have been nominated for Columbus Technology Council's 2003 Top Contributors to the Advancement of Technology (Top CAT) Awards.

This annual awards program recognizes and honors individuals, teams, corporations, and partnerships based on their technological and/or scientific significance, economic impact, and benefits to society in helping to build a strong technological community in Central Ohio.

San Diego Chosen as Third ITEC Location

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UCSD has been selected by Internet2 as a national Internet2 Technology Evaluation Center (ITEC). The mission of the center will be to test and evaluate leading-edge technologies for high-performance Internet2 networks—working with developers to test and refine network hardware and software for optimal end-to-end network performance up to 10 gigabits per second. Internet2 is a consortium led by more than 200 U.S. universities, working with industry and government to develop and deploy advanced Internet applications and technologies.

Senior Walkabout Program

The Linworth Campus, Worthington Schools
Worthington, Ohio

The Linworth Campus of Worthington High School offers a Senior Walkabout Program that allows seniors who have met graduation requirements to use all or a portion of the second semester to test their skills and abilities in the adult world of work.

Three Ohio Schools Receive $400K Grant for Early Connection to Third Frontier Network

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Three Ohio universities have received a $400,000 combined grant from the Ohio Board of Regents Action Fund and the National Science Foundation (NSF) for early connection to the state’s OSCnet. OSCnet is a high-speed fiber optic network designed by the networking division of the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). OSCnet will link Ohio's universities, colleges, K-12 schools, and research centers to promote education, research and economic development opportunities.

UT Faculty Member Named to Supercomputer Center Advisory Group

Columbus, Ohio -- March 26, 1998 -- Anthony Johnson, associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Toledo, recently was named a member of the Ohio Supercomputer Center's (OSC) Statewide Users Group.

The OSC Statewide Users Group, or SUG, connects OSC to the academic institutions in the state and provides a faculty and student viewpoint on OSC's operations.
