Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC): The Ohio Supercomputer Center is a shared statewide resource that provides supercomputing services and computational science expertise to Ohio researchers in academia and industry. As a centralized asset, OSC provides students, scientists, engineers and clinicians with far better computational resources than their organizations could acquire and maintain on their own. OSC empowers Ohio researchers to new innovations and discoveries; partners with Ohio industries to use supercomputing and computational science as a competitive force; and collaborates with Ohio’s colleges and universities to educate Ohio’s workforce.

AweSim: Access to OSC resources is available for a fee via OSC’s AweSim program to a variety of organizations, including: Businesses / companies; Non-Ohio-based academic entities; Nonprofits or governmental organizations; Hospitals; Other organizations (which do not need to be based in Ohio). All clients not affiliated with an Ohio academic institution must sign a service agreement, provide a deposit, and pay for resource usage per a standard price list. In most case, they typically also need to provide their own license for commercial software packages. For more, visit www.awesim.org.
Open OnDemand (OOD): Open OnDemand is an NSF-funded open-source HPC portal in use at 200+ centers based on OSC’s original OnDemand portal. The goal of Open OnDemand is to provide an easy way for system administrators to provide web access to their HPC resources, including, but not limited to: Plugin-free web experience; Easy file management; Command-line shell access; Job management and monitoring across different batch servers and resource managers; Graphical desktop environments and desktop applications.
