About Mana HPC

Mana is the University of Hawai‘i (UH) high performance computing (HPC) cluster –  a collection of many computers called nodes connected together with a network –  that solves computational problems which are too large for standard computers.

UH Information Technology Service Cyberinfrastructure (CI) operates Mana as a free UH system-wide computational resource that supports data and computationally intensive research in over 90 disciplines.

NSF Campus Cyberinfrastructure (CC*) Awards

Two National Science Foundation (NSF) Campus Cyberinfrastructure (CC*) awards totaling $900,000 were awarded to UH to support the addition of computational resources and data storage for computationally intensive research, education and practice across the UH ten campus system.

Koa will bring 750 terabytes of high-speed storage, eight computational nodes with (48 cores, 256 GB of memory) and two compute nodes that provide another 20 graphics processing units with newer architectures to support machine learning and deep learning workflows.

KoaStore establishes a new intercampus data-storage platform with the ability to process larger datasets and models and accelerate existing workflows.
