The OSC Job Constructor provides the user with a simple web portal user interface running in your web browser with a backend hosted at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). The web portal allows you to configure and submit portable batch system (PBS) job scripts for high performance computing (HPC) simulation jobs. Simulation jobs run on an HPC cluster at OSC. For file uploading and downloading, use the OSC File Manager. These tools are suitable for users that may have academic licenses or access to other software at OSC that is otherwise not accessible from other products in the BCC store.
This is a monthly pay-as-you-go service. You must have an active license for the applications that your jobs run. You will be billed at the beginning of each calendar month for the previous month usage of HPC core hours and software licensing fees, as applicable. Automatic payments are made at the beginning of each calendar month for actual usage over the previous month. Payments are made against a credit card or purchase order. Credit card information is secured by a payment processing service that is certified to Payment Card Industry (PCI) Service Provider Level 1 which is the most stringent level of certification available. OSC consulting on the use of software products hosted at OSC is available under the OSC Consulting Subscription.
The service is priced based on the number of core hours used per month. The unit price per core hour is $0.07 USD. For software unit pricing, please contact OSC for academic licensing and Nimbis for commerical licensing
